The Hunger Games’ Amandla Stenberg and Jackie Emerson Make it to the 74th Annual Popcorn N Roses Rising Star List

Amandla Stenberg and Jackie Emerson were able to the 74th Annual Popcorn N Roses Rising Star list because of their participation in the blockbuster movie, “The Hunger Games.” Amandla Stenberg played Rue while Jackie Emerson played the elusive Foxface. According to Popcorn N Roses:
#6 Female Rising Star of 2012: Jacqueline Emerson


* Featured role in one of the hottest movies of the year, “The Hunger Games”
* Has her own YouTube channel promoting her music career
* Very active in charity work

Jacqueline is completely unlike her ruthless, conniving “Hunger Games” character Foxface, and that’s a good thing…trust us. Although the film was Jackie’s first major film role, we’re betting that it’s only a launching point for her career. Her YouTube channel shows off her music very well; she’s also a gifted vocalist. And she’s also done voiceover work in the past, providing various voices for the 2004 TV series “Father Of The Pride”. She’s got a good head on her shoulders, she knows what she wants when it comes to a career, and she’s taking the point and making it happen..and it couldn’t happen to a more talented and deserving young lady.


“Son Of The South” – a period drama about the civil rights movement, Jacqueline has a featured role

#2 Female Rising Star of 2012: Amandla Stenberg


* Has one of the most pivotal roles in the spring smash “The Hunger Games”
* A huge career in commercials leading to acting success
* Started her career as a child model for Disney

Amandla plays Rue, the little girl whose demise triggers a major uprising in the spring hit “The Hunger Games”. With almost no lines – her character is seen a great deal of the time and not heard, which makes even more impressive that she takes over her part of the film, and the chemistry she has with her co-star, 2011 #3 Female Rising Star Jennifer Lawrence, is utterly amazing. With a very successful print ad career AND a very successful commercial career as well already under her belt, it’s only a matter of time before this 13 year old beauty takes off towards major stardom.


She has none announced at the moment, presumably because she’s also a full-time student. But we’ll be watching her every move over the next couple of years because she’s just AWESOME!

Jacqueline Emerson “Foxface” Answers Twitter Questions from Fans Via Teen Vogue

Jacque Emerson, the actress who will play Foxface at the upcoming Hunger Games movie, answers questions from fans from Twitter via Teen Vogue. Here are her answers to the questions.
@Margo15: Did you act out Foxface as you perceived in the book?

The great thing about Foxface is that there isn’t a lot in the book. I had a lot of liberty to explore the character and her back-story. I definitely tried to stay as true to the character as I could.


@Biigiimeow: What do you think of the books?

Love them. I was a huge fan before I got cast. I think they’re really smart.

@Lilbalbi: What was the best part about being involved with the games and working with everyone on set?

Probably meeting everyone. I got to learn so much because every one of my castmates was unbelievably talented. We became such a tight knit family.

@SassyDianaMarie: Foxface is a very independent character. A loner. Any parallels between the two regarding such?

Foxface really figures out the game analytically. She’s a critical thinker. If I were ever in the Games, I would think of them that way; I wouldn’t go in and fight and try to kill people. I’d think: How can I best beat the games from a mental standpoint? (But I would be running and hiding a lot!)

@daniellenuss: What character would you have liked to play if you didn’t land the role of Foxface?

Obviously Katniss is such a strong female lead. We don’t have enough of those right now in books and stories. She’s an inspirational character. I can’t think of anyone who would play her better than Jen. I’d love to play Rue in another universe where I looked more like the character! She’s the emotional heart of the story. Caesar Flickerman would be so much fun, because Stanley Tucci is so amazing. Effie would be such a fun character to play, too!

@kissmemissmeXO: Jackie, how long have you acted, and was it a surprise when you got your role in The Hunger Games?

I have been acting since I was six years old and tried out for a production of “Annie.” I was completely surprised and unbelievably excited when I got cast! I definitely jumped on my bed a bit…

@a_pittigher: Ask her about her experience with the cast and what she plans to do from here on out.

My experience with the cast was really great. We all became a tight-knit family in the months we were filming together. I’m releasing my new music video really soon (announcing the release date shortly) and I have a couple other projects in the works! I’m really excited! I also am planning on going to college.

Trivia: Jackie is already accepted to Stanford University (where she hopes to major in Performing Arts and Asian Studies).

Lovely Young Ladies of Hunger Games – Behind the Scenes for their Seventeen Photoshoot

Here are two footage featuring the lovely young ladies of Hunger Games Willow Shields (Prim), Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Isabelle Fuhrman (Clove), Jacque Emerson (Foxface), and Leven Ramblin (Glimmer). Watch and learn how to they prepare for their roles as well as their fashion style!

We hung out at the studio all day with the girls, who had a blast trying on different looks and rocking out to Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Adele.

“Some of these girls are like my sisters,” Jacqueline said. “So it was so great to be able to have dance parties and just kind of dance around.”

… ”I’m definitely a shoe person,” Isabelle said. “I wear high heels every day, I’m not even kidding.”

“The audition process was really cool,” she told us. “I was so excited because I’d read the books and I was dying to audition. Luckily I was able to channel all that nervous excited energy into this ferocious Glimmer energy. That worked in my favor I think.”

Leven also talks about the training she had to go through for the role.
“I just had some pretty hard core fights, like combat fights and if your wrist slips one inch too far you’re going to get punched in the face,” she said. “I was actually thrown on accident by a tackle and went pretty far. And it was kind of scary.”
