VIDEO: Jennifer, Josh and Liam Describe Their Process on Set for Big Emotional Scenes

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has huge emotional upheavals for Katniss, Peeta and Gale. Patrick Stoner asked Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth what they like to have in place on set before they act out an emotional scene. Jennifer blocks the scene (shows the crew where she intends to stand, sit and move) so it will be technically covered and then relies on her sense of empathy to carry her. Josh likes the set to be quiet and methodically works through where the character is coming from. They both prefer to get it first time as its too exhausting to repeat too much. Jennifer likes to repeat and build on dialogue scenes take after take but not for emotional scenes. Liam prefers to allow the scene to take him wherever it goes and not become too focused in repeating his performance and allow it to change organically.
