The 20-year-old actor opened up about playing Peeta in The Hunger Games and scaring off new cast mates.
On the new cast: “Jennifer [Lawrence] and I were nervous about our new costars because we’re kind of crazy when we’re together, so it can be a little scary for the new people. But everybody jumped right in. It was a fun vibe on set.”
On the love triangle in the film: “I’m definitely Team Peeta! But Katniss’s dilemma is very real—it’s hard to know who to choose when you admire two people who are so different. The love triangle gets played up a lot more in Catching Fire.”
On playing Peeta: “Katniss is an “I’ll just shoot somebody with an arrow” person, and Peeta is a “Let’s talk this through” kind of guy. I have his mind-set.”
