Jena, who plays one-time female victor from District 7 Johanna Mason, spills on her Catching Fire audition: “I know they saw every single actress from here ’til Tuesday. They wanted to find someone who didn’t just physicalize this character, but could also scare people. I don’t know what I did — I guess I scared the hell out of them.”
And it doesn’t sound like Sam, who portrays District 4 heartthrob Finnick Odair, had is an easier: “Finnick is supposed to be this godlike creature. I remember sitting in the audition room and this kid walked in. He was seriously one of the most handsome men I’ve ever seen. And I was just, ‘Nah, this is never going to happen.’”
