I’m tired of people on here saying that Lionsgate is whitewashing the character of Katniss Everdeen. There are several reasons for this.
First let me start off by saying I am a woman of color (I’m italian and cuban), and I have an olive skin tone. My mom has a lgither version of an olive skin tone, as does my sister. So when the book said that Katniss had olive skin, this is the skin tone I thought of:
This is kind of close to my color skin. As you can see, she is not black. That’s because the book says OLIVE skin. Not “Dark Brown,” as Collins uses to describe Rue (who obviously was canonically black–something that they took into account while casting for the film. Rue could have been casted as a white girl but she wasnt. Therefore there is no intentional whitewashing here. But back to my point)
Which brings me back to Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer is not pale-as-fuck white. In Catching Fire they tried to appease the complaints by giving her a darker skin tone in makeup.
Many ask, “Well why not just cast someone who is that color?”
Well why not cast a blonde to play peeta? Or a real alcoholic to play Haymitch? Or a real whore to play Finnick? You know why? Because acting isn’t about BEING the characters in real life. It is pretending. It is ACTING. Jennifer was cast because Jennifer was the best person for the job, whether you think so or not. The director thought so, the producers and investors thought so, and the goddamn academy validated her talent by giving her a fucing Oscar at the age of 22! Do you know how incredible that is? Very!
I understand where the frustration is coming from here. I really do. But as a WOC and as a obsessive, hardcore, long-time Hunger Games fan, I would rather they casted someone as gifted and perfect for the part as Jennifer than for them to have casted a WOC simply because of her skin color. Jennifer got the part because she DESERVED it. NOT because she’s white!
The dog that plays Hana in the show is a pageant dog, so she had to have a litter of puppies to keep the genes going. When she did, they gave one of the puppies to Finland’s actor because he loves Hana so much. He calls her Hana the Second and brings her in sometimes to see her mum. (sent in by an anon)
Denmark’s actor sometimes likes to flatten his hair and slick it back, but not for looks. During some scenes with the Axis, Italy’s and Japan’s actors burst out laughing suddenly because they can see Denmark’s actor imitating Germany’s actor’s scenes behind him in sync. The two also like to wear the same outfit on set and walk around acting as if they were a mirror and a reflection, even requesting for the hair/makeup crew to style their hair in the same way.

China’s actor always messes up and forgets his own lines, but for some reason always seems to remember everyone else’s perfectly.
Wy and Sealand’s actors are super professional and can keep a straight face through the most physically awkward and funniest scenes, even when the adult actors are dying with laughter around them and completely screwing up their lines. When that happens they just shake their little heads in utter disapproval at the grown ups and wait patiently for them to get themselves together. (credits to nobutihavethegcse)
The Netherlands’ actor loves sending progress shots of his hair being styled to the rest of the cast, even those who are in the same dressing room as him and have seen the whole process before.
Bonus - Italy’s and Germany’s actors being dorks at the premiere:
