Willow Shields: “I’m Excited to Grow Up With Prim’s Character”
Josh Horowitz of MTV caught up with Willow Shields at San Diego ComicCon today, and asked her a few questions about the start of filming, what her favorite part of playing Prim is, and what scene she’s most looking forward to in ‘Catching Fire’.
On the start of filming:
“We heard rumors about fall, but we’re not exactly sure when,” she told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s still a secret from me too.”
What she’s most excited about:
“I’m excited to grow up with Prim’s character, because, you know, I have basically three more movies, but I’m going to be 15 or 16 by the end, but I started off when I was 10,” she said. “So it’s going to be really interesting to go start to finish and just to see what a difference my acting has become, and just growing up with that character is going to be really fun.”
Scene she’s most looking forward to (and hopes will make it into the film– she hasn’t seen a script yet):
“It’s a scene where Haymitch, Peeta and I are sitting around in our new house and we’re stuffing our faces with candy and making fun of Katniss, and I just think it would be a really fun scene to do because we’re just goofing around and having fun,” Shields said. “And although Katniss gets mad at us, we’re still having fun, so it would be a fun scene to shoot plus I would be able to shoot a scene with Josh and Woody Harrelson, so that would be really fun.”
