Tributes Megan Hayes and Daniel Bernhardt Talk About the ‘Catching Fire’ Experience
Now that the release of ‘Catching Fire’ is getting ever closer we can expect to hear a lot more from the cast at large. Megan Hayes, who plays the District 6 morphling, chatted with Dread Central about her recent projects, including ‘Catching Fire’:
DC: Can you talk about your experience on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and explain who the Morphlings are for those who don’t know?
MH: I don’t know how much I can say. I am the tribute from District Six. The morphlings are addicted to a drug called morphling – a pain killer that’s kind of a morphine-esque kind of drug. My experience on Hunger Games couldn’t have been better. I was embraced by everyone and had a fantastic experience. It was a really fun role to play; the director [Francis Lawrence] was incredibly kind but also incredibly smart and knew exactly what he wanted. It was a really ideal experience overall.
DC: How much better was craft services on The Hunger Games then on +1?
MH: Lemme tell ya’ about craft services on The Hunger Games. I really couldn’t partake of it that much because I was on a very strict diet where I had to lose and get to a very malnourished-looking weight. So, it looked great but I basically ate a lot of almonds and a lot of fruits and veggies and that was about it.
Daniel Bernhardt, District 9 tribute, was also out and about recently and MaximoTV caught him for a few moments on the red carpet of the Miss India America Beauty Pageant. Daniel is very tight lipped about the film but the interview is still quite interesting and humorous as the interview asks him about survival tips and his training regime. Advanced warning though: The interviewer does refer to ‘Catching Fire’ as the ‘Hunger Games 2′.
