Actress Megan Hayes, who played the female morphling victor in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, recently spoke with HowtoBeARedhead.com and mentioned some of her time on the set of the film.
H2BAR:: You are in the newest film, ”Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Can you tell us what it was like working on this epic film?
MH: I play the Morphling who is the Tribute from District 6. “Catching Fire” is kind of like the TV show, “Survivor: All Stars.” So, my character was a past Victor who sadly has developed a terrible drug addiction to a drug called Morphling. My strength in the Games is camouflage which really turns out to be an asset because I save Peeta’s life. SORRY SPOILER ALERT! But come on, if you haven’t seen it by now. Working on this film was a dream come true! Everyone was so nice to little ol’ me and I got to go to Hawaii for a month to shoot. So much fun.
H2BAR: What was it like working with Jennifer Lawrence and so many other amazing actors?
MH: Everyone was amazing. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about them. When we were sitting in Hawaii, we met for rehearsals, it’s me and all the famous. I’m looking around thinking, “Who the hell am I? What am I doing here?” But everyone was really inclusive, loving, supportive. In shooting the closeups of my death scene, Jen was so great and kind and fun and supportive.
