Now I'm just going off of the shows you've done, but you never seem to get angry or pissed off even when people are attacking you, which I think is very impressive. Are you just naturally calm or do you just not like people to see you in that way?
I think letting emotions get the best of you will never be productive. Yelling is tacky and interrupting is basically one person telling the other person what I need to say is more important. Nothing ever gets worked out that way. With Untucked, I knew the exact edit I’d be getting so I played into it. I knew which scenes would end with my punchlines. It was basically long form improv but Phi Phi didn’t know she was playing lol
Prim reminds me a lot of my little sister (although my sister has more of Katniss’ attitude). The scene where they’re saying goodbye after the reaping, knowing there is a very good possibility that they will never see each other again, breaks my heart every time. I actually cried.
“Prim!” The strangled cry comes out of my throat, and my muscles begin to move again. “Prim!” I don’t need to shove through the crowd. The other kids make way immediately, allowing me a straight path to the stage. I reach her just as she is about to mount the steps. With one sweep of my arm, I push her behind me. “I volunteer!” I gasp. “I volunteer as tribute!”
You know a book is depressing when the comedic relief is the alcoholic who has had to take partial responsibility for children from his hometown dying year after year. But that’s just the kind of place Panem is, and Haymitch has some hilarious moments. My favorite quote is from Catching Fire:
"So it’s you and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans"
I’m trying not to make this challenge completely Beauty and the Beast, but this kiss scene is so beautifully done. It sets off literal fireworks and sparks the transformation of the castle and all of its inhabitants.
This is my favorite scene because out of everything that Katniss and the others had to battle in all three books, this was the worst. It combined the physical horror of these massive wolves trying to kill you with the psychological horror of the realization that these are (supposed to be) partly people you’ve met. Someone you’ve killed, or someone you’ve made an alliance with. It’s sick. And amazing to read.
She is evil personified. Ugh I hate her so much. HATE HATE HATE. Bellatrix? We’re cool. Narcissa? Meh. Petunia? Whatever. But Umbridge can die in a fire. And then come back as a ghost and be petrified and burned over and over and over and over and over…
Is there any of the film adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book?
And all the other stuff they cut out of movie four. I understand why they did it, but in only focusing on Harry’s storyline they cut out a lot of great subplots. I think that Hermione has especially suffered from movie cuts; because a lot of her contributions come from reading books and not, you know, chasing spiders, they get cut out for lack of excitement.
And I REALLY wanted to see Winky in Goblet of Fire :(
Hate is too strong a word, but I’m definitely not the huge Gale fan that a lot of people are. Nothing specific, there’s just something about his personality that bugs me—moreso in Catching Fire and especially in Mockingjay. However, I will admit that he’s sexier than Peeta ;)
