Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 1, Issue 13

Liam & JLaw talk CF while in Manila. Laim is the face of BENCH and the two were interviewed at a meet & greet.

 

6. Expect to see him in more unique and challenging roles as he starts to look for “something new.”

“I look for scripts that I think are interesting and hopefully surprise audiences and give them something new to watch.

“I also look for directors who are passionate about what they do and have a new, creative look on film; hopefully bring something new to the table which I haven’t seen before.”

7. He says that it isn’t an act: Jennifer Lawrence, his ”Hunger Games” and ”Catching Fire” co-star, truly is “amazing.”

“She’s one of the most energetic, fun-loving people I’ve ever met. Working with her on set is just easy because she’s so good and she’s just won all these huge awards so congratulations to her for that. She’s amazing.”

8. Liam gets “whipped” in “Catching Fire” — literally.

“My character [Gale] gets whipped in this one. So I spent a couple of days on my knees getting whipped, which was pretty horrific.”

9. “Catching Fire” is turning out to be even better than “The Hunger Games.”

“There’s a whole lot of great stuff in ’Catching Fire.’ The characters are developing more; (director) Francis Lawrence had a whole new take on it.” {hunger-games.net}
