In the recent MTV Movie Awards, Alan Ritchson, who plays District 2 tribute/victor Gloss, was able to talk about some of his experiences filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
“No hazing, fortunately,” he said, laughing. Instead, he described “Catching Fire” as a great place to be, adding, “But to be a part of that, it was pretty cool. Jennifer’s star just continued to rise, even through production…it was just cool to be there.”
And not only was Alan not put through the wringer by his co-stars, he said that everyone, particularly the fantabulous Stanley Tucci (with whom he did his pre-Games interview scene), was “super-generous and giving.”
Meanwhile, the actor says that the scenes he’s most looking forward to seeing on the big screen are the same one the fans are likely clamoring for: the highly anticipated action sequences from the 75th Hunger Games.
“We shot some cool scenes,” he said. “I like the really physical kind of action stuff. I spent months training for this stuff, fight training, and becoming a dagger specialist. All those things in the arena are going to be a lot of fun.”
