THR Chats with Willow Shields at Comic-Con 2012
Willow has been out and about a fair bit lately (which we love!), and during Comic Con The Hollywood Reporter also sat down to chat with her, asking Willow how she views Primrose’s role as the catalyst for a lot of the story:
THR: Your character way is sort of responsible for what happens to Katniss. How much are you able to be aware of the impact your character has?
Shields: I actually never really thought of it. Like, I’ve thought Prim is the reason that Katniss went into the games, but I didn’t think of it as a bad thing. It’s because of me she’s going into these games, but it’s because of me she goes into the games and good things happen to her too, so I don’t know. It’s interesting to think about that, but I haven’t really done a lot of that.
She also shares some more info on how close her relationship with Jennifer Lawrence was:
THR: How much of a family were you and Jennifer Lawrence when you were off camera? Was the sister relationship kind of the same when you weren’t filming?
Shields: Yeah, we were both like sisters on set. We were so close. It was so hot outside that we would be drinking so much water, and if there wasn’t enough water bottles around, we’d be drinking out of the same water bottle – that’s how close me and Jennifer were.
The rest of the interview discusses her work with Gary Ross, what she’s looking forward to next and which actresses career she’d most like to emulate and is well worth reading. You can check it out over at The Hollywood Reporter
