“It sounds so silly but the thing that I’m not looking forward to is the end of The Hunger Games. We had such fun on the first one that I don’t want the filming to finish…I know that I’m going to be doing it for a while, and then obviously there’s the next film coming up at the end of next year, but I have no idea as to where my career is headed in five years time. I’m just excited to find out what might happen. Hopefully, I won’t be sitting in my flat in London, crying myself to sleep.”
I don’t have a set way of getting into a character. I find it is important to run scenes with another person before performing. I’m really lucky because my fiancé Layla Alizada is also an actress, so we get to coach each other on every part we play. Other than that, I make sure to read the script over and over and over. That’s the biggest part for me. I go into most scenes knowing the other lines almost as well as I know my own. Kind of helps me be able to let it all go and just trust. It’s like a cheat code. A trick that helps me be ok with just being there and listening. That might be the most important aspect of the whole process for me. Doing the work with the goal of allowing myself to let it go and just be present.
I think this is an amazing time for music, and I’m very happy to be alive now. I can’t think of any other time I’d rather be alive, other than maybe caveman days ‘cause I’d just be curious to see how people are acting.
