“I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book and I don’t take it lightly,” the 20-year-old actress said in a statement to JJJ.
“I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of [author] Suzanne Collin‘s masterpiece,” she added.
Jennifer also told EW there wasn’t a specific scene in the three books that got her excited about playing Katniss Everdeen.
“The entire book made me want that,” she explained. “That being said, Iâ€™ve never shot a bow and arrow, so thatâ€™ll be cool.”
