‘The Hunger Games’ Stunt Coordinator Allan Poppleton Speaks To Teen Ink

Teen Ink did an interview with New Zealand born and raised Allan Poppleton who also happens to be a stunt coordinator for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie. As he was currently working on it at the point of interview, he couldn’t speak much about it. Nevertheless, check out an extract of his interview below!

For anyone who loves the film series, The Chronicles of Narnia, the name Allan Poppleton is most likely a familiar one. Allan is the stunt coordinator for all three of these films. But Narnia is not the only place you’ll know him from:

He has also worked on films such as Eragon, The Lord of the

Rings and, more currently, (Freak out, girls!) The Hunger Games.

I was recently given the opportunity to interview this amazing stuntman for Teen Ink.

RH- Tell us a little about yourself.

AP- Born and raised in New Zealand. I’m married to Erika Takacs, [who is a] presenter, actress and singer. We have three amazing children: Tai, who is thirteen, Scarlett, who is three and a half and Maximus, who is one.

RH- Aside from The Chronicles of Narnia and Eragon, you have also worked on the film adaption of The Hunger Games; what can fans expect to see?

AP- Hunger Games is going to awesome! I am still working on it at the moment, so am unable to say anything about it…Sorry! But make sure you check it out!

RH- Tell us about the project you’re currently working on.

AP- I’m {working} on Hunger Games in North Carolina at the moment, and I’m still consulting on Spartucus: Vengeance in New Zealand.

It’s a pity he couldn’t share more about ‘The Hunger Games’. Don’t forget to check out the full interview over at Teen Ink!

Thank you so much to Rachel Herriman for sharing her interview with us!
