We Live Film had a chance to chat with Catching Fire cast members Bruno Gunn (Brutus), Sam Claflin (Finnick), Jena Malone (Johanna Mason), and Jeffrey Wright (Beetee) at the Victory Tour held in Cherry Hill Mall yesterday, November 3, 2013.
Watch the video below:
Bruno Gunn, who plays District 2 victor Brutus in The Hunger Games: Catching recently had an interview about the movie and his character with Hollywood.com.
First off, can you share a little about your experience filmingThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire? Did you feel a fellowship with your co-stars? Was there competition behind the scenes as well?
I made great memories, new friends, and together we got to travel around the country and make this amazing film. The only competition was on the dance floor and Josh Hutcherson by far had the best moves.
Tell us about your character Brutus. What did you do to prepare to get in the head space to play him?
As a former Victor in one of the richest districts (Two) in Panem, Brutus was afforded a privileged lifestyle. He’s a fierce warrior who was groomed for the Arena. I immediately related to Brutus’ fiery competitive nature. It was also important for me to create a personal back story for him and let that influence what was otherwise a very physical role.
