In your death scene with Katniss, how were you able to stay still for so long when she was placing flowers all over your body? It was really difficult actually because we were in the middle of the woods in North Carolina and there were bugs and snakes and I knew they were around us. I was actually terrified! I could feel them crawling up my arms. And what happened was we were in a meadow where there were hornets’ nests all over the ground and someone stepped on one and it exploded and I would shriek and run up and ruin the scene and I got stung!

After starring in this huge blockbuster, has this experience made you want to continue a career in film? Yes. I would love to be an actress. Josh [Hutcherson] started acting when he was 11 or younger but just continued on to now and I would love to do something like that. I’m really loving film right now and that’s what I’m going to stick to right now.
