If you’ve read Suzanne Collins‘ “The Hunger Games,” you might have pictured several young actresses in the role of Katniss Everdeen.
Hailee, 14, shared with the outlet about even being mentioned for the role, “That’s definitely an honor. I didn’t even realize that people were mentioning my name. And, again, it’s every actor’s dream to be recognized for something that they love to do, and to get recognized for that is pretty amazing. I thank the people out there who think that. That would definitely be an honor.”
But has she read the books? Yep! “I read the first oneâ€”I was in the middle of the second one, and I kind of felt likeâ€”I kind of have to read it every time I have a spare momentâ€”and I kind of felt like I was missing something. So I’m rereading the first one just so I can make sure that I get everything. But they’re kind of an incredible book series,” Hailee added.
