Willow Shields, the lucky girl who plays Katniss’ younger sister Prim in the Hunger Games movie series, has chatted with MTV during the 2012 Comic Con International in San Diego, CA. In the interview, she mentioned that she has no idea on the exact filming date for Catching Fire, adding that she hasn’t receive any script yet. She was also able to cite a scene in Catching Fire that she is looking forward to film. She was also excited to grow up on screen as her character Prim would be. Here is MTV’s interview:
“We heard rumors about fall, but we’re not exactly sure when,” she told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s still a secret from me too.”
There isn’t a script yet (at least that Shields has seen), but she said just reading the novel version of “Catching Fire” has given her a good idea of what to expect. Even though she’s not sure what will or won’t make the final cut, Shields knows the scene she’s most excited about.
“It’s a scene where Haymitch, Peeta and I are sitting around in our new house and we’re stuffing our faces with candy and making fun of Katniss, and I just think it would be a really fun scene to do because we’re just goofing around and having fun,” Shields said. “And although Katniss gets mad at us, we’re still having fun, so it would be a fun scene to shoot plus I would be able to shoot a scene with Josh and Woody Harrelson, so that would be really fun.”
Shields has three more “Hunger Games” movies to look forward to, so we couldn’t resist asking what she’s most looking forward to in her character arc. Like Daniel Radcliffe, Kristen Stewart and many before her, Shields is just happy to grow at the same rate as her character.
“I’m excited to grow up with Prim’s character, because, you know, I have basically three more movies, but I’m going to be 15 or 16 by the end, but I started off when I was 10,” she said. “So it’s going to be really interesting to go start to finish and just to see what a difference my acting has become, and just growing up with that character is going to be really fun.”
