Bruno Gunn Talks The Hunger Games Fandom and Social Media
In a recent interview with Hollywood.com, Bruno Gunn, who will play District 2 Victor Brutus in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, talked about his thoughts on The Hunger Games fandom and how social media has changed the relationships between fans and actors.
Obviously you are no stranger to the big screen, but how are you dealing with the fandom of Hunger Games? It is quite a phenomenon. How do you anticipate the release of the movie will impact you personally? Have you given any thought on how best to handle it?
They are well-read, intelligent and creative fans who have a passion for reading. They love Suzanne Collins and pore over every line of her story. It’s been a completely positive experience. It’s great hearing people tell me that they’re discovering some of my earlier work and am excited for them to see future projects.
Touching on social media: It has changed the fan/artist relationship. What is your personal approach to social media? Do you use it to share or interact?
Twitter, what a great platform to reach out and have a dialogue with someone on the other side of the world. I’ve met all kinds of incredible people through social media. It’s information and culture at our fingertips. I’m a huge fan.
