Hunger Games Portugal Exclusive Interview With James Gaisford

Our fellow Panem World partner, Hunger Games Portugal, has secured an exclusive interview with James Gaisford.

James Gaisford is gaining popularity among Hunger Games fans around the world after making his debut in MainStay Productions‘s fan made “The Second Quarter Quell” short with him playing young Haymitch Abernathy.

Due to to rising popularity among Hunger Games fans, James Gaisford went on to act in “Finnick and Annie Web Series” with him portraying Finnick Odair in Episodes 4, 5 and 6. You can check out the first episode of “Finnick and Annie Web Series” over here.

Check out the first part of Hunger Games Portugal‘s interview with James Gaisford below.

Hunger Games Portugal: Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

James Gaisford: Umm let’s see… My name is James Gaisford. I’m 17 years old. I’m a member of LDS Church. I really enjoy reading, writing, singing, chapstick, animals, music, family and I am extremely passionate about acting.



Are you a Hunger Games Fan?

Yes, absolutely.



Since when? And how did you get to know the trilogy?

Since the beginning! I actually happened to get a copy of it before anyone else in my neighborhood… Some sweet old librarian accidentally gave me the one that everyone had placed a hold on… haha whoops 🙂

If you could play any character on film, who would you pick?

Any character? Hmm that’s hard… I don’t know! I can’t really say what part I would like to play in the future cos I can’t see the future!

What part did you liked to play the most: Haymitch or Finnick?

Geez these are good questions haha… OK, I really enjoyed both soo much! I think filming Haymitch was a bit more up my alley, just cause there was lots of fighting. But if I was given an opportunity to play either in the film I would definitely play finnick over haymitch just because I like to take time to develop characters.

What do you think about so many people expressing their desire to have you on the role of Finnick Odair on Catching Fire?

Its absolutely surreal.

Did you participate in any casting call for The Hunger Games movie, or are you thinking about auditioning for one of the next ones?

Nope! Haha. I was just a lucky fan that got an opportunity to be in a really fun youtube video.

Is there any actor from The Hunger Games movie that you would like to work with?

I’m sure all of them would be an amazing experience.

How do you feel about having so many fangirls right now? Do you ever felt pressured by them? Do you wish to have a connection with your fans (without letting them into your personal life, of course)?

Fangirls? What fangirls?? Haha… Yes that is a big issue, I really want to connect with the wonderful people who are so supportive of me. (thank you) But, at the same time I think keeping your personal life, personal is essential to maintaining a healthy normal life.

Head over to Panem World for the English version of the interview or visit Hunger Games Portugal and read the interview in Portuguese!

Unofficial Hunger Games Fan Meet Up To ‘The Hunger Games’ Snow Globe At The Cathay

As you might know, Trish and I went to ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe at The Cathay yesterday.

Currently, these Hunger Games fans in Singapore have expressed their interest in joining us for this unofficial meet up.

1) Natalie Goh
2) E Zo
3) Hazel
4) Shareen
5) Nadhirah
6) Queenielyn

Date: 25 November 2011, Friday
Time: 12pm
Meeting Point: Dhoby Ghaut MRT station exit to Plaza Singapura. There is a bubble tea shop in Dhoby Ghaut MRT station exit to Plaza Singapura. We will meet up at the empty space beside the bubble tea shop.

Program for the day
1) Lunch – As 12pm is the peak lunch time period, we will look for a place that will be able to accommodate all of us as well as our budgets and preferences instead of deciding on a place now. We will spend lots of time chatting about everything related to The Hunger Games and beyond that too.
2) Head over to The Cathay for photo taking in ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe. We might walk around before that but it all depends on that day.

This is a very casual meet up event. Just think of it as a chance to meet more Hunger Games fans! I don’t know about you but I would love to chat with fans all about Hunger Games! If you would like to join in, feel free to meet up at the meeting point on that day! However, it would be good to give us a heads up before that though, such as leaving a comment under this post, tweet us at @HungerGamesSG, leave a post on our Facebook page or send us an email at hungergamessingapore@gmail.com. If not, we wouldn’t know that you are coming and we might have left the meeting point.

Updated With More Photos! Hunger Games Singapore Staff Trip To ‘The Hunger Games’ Snow Globe At The Cathay

UPDATE: We realized fan sites have taken the picture of children in ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe which we have previously posted in previous post and spread it around the internet. As we do not know the children in question, we are not sure if their parents or the children themselves will be happy to see their picture spreading around. Thus, we kindly request all fan sites to replace it with this picture of Hunger Games Singapore staff in ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe or ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe picture as shown below instead. Thank you.

We had reported about ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe at The Cathay shopping mall earlier today and not long after that, we went there for a picture!

'The Hunger Games' snow globe at The Cathay

As previously mentioned, ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe will be on display from 17 November 2011 to 25 December 2011 at the entrance of The Cathay.

You would have to purchase a S$5 coupon from The Cathay information counter at Level 1. Paid entrance to ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe is available for the first 1000. A single coupon will entail 4 person to enter the ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe where a professional photographer will take a photo memento like the one below!

That is not all! You can also redeem a box of ‘The Hunger Games’ poker cards with the very same coupon you had purchased at The Cathay information counter! Unfortunately, you can only redeem a box of ‘The Hunger Games’ poker cards with each coupon.

How 'The Hunger Games' teaser poster poker cards look like inside

If you are wondering what are the terms and conditions as well as all the details for the best experience for ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe, we got that covered. Take a look at the photo below which has all the information that you need to know.

While many would have been attracted to ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe (we don’t blame you!) which was placed at the center of the attraction, Hunger Games Singapore staff Trish managed to spot those little clues left all over The Cathay shopping mall to signify that ‘The Hunger Games’ will be arriving in Cathay Cineplexes soon.

For example, take a look at the picture below. It looks like the previous picture except upon taking a closer look, you will realize the pillar that is covered in Christmas tree design in the right side of the picture has not any usual Christmas ornaments hanging from the tree. That is Mockingjay ornaments!

Mockingjay ornaments on Christmas trees!

In fact, all the pillars surrounding ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe are covered in the same Christmas tree designs with Mockingjay ornaments.

Besides that, take a closer look at the glass wall on the level two of The Cathay. It looks like a seemingly innocent Merry Christmas greeting but on a closer look…we found ‘The Hunger Games’ movie tagline “May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor” under it.

Last but not least, these little posters are pasted on the glass doors of the lifts in The Cathay informing people about ‘The Hunger Games’ snow globe on display. It also includes a brief information on ‘The Hunger Games’ movie too!

Updated on 25 November 2011: We had went back to The Cathay and we saw that they had attached ‘The Hunger Games’ banners to the ceilings of levels 1 to 4 in The Cathay as shown in the picture below!

The Cathay shopping mall is around 5 minutes walk away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station on North East Line and North South Line.

If you are wondering why The Cathay is promoting ‘The Hunger Games’ on such a large basis, The Cathay belongs to Cathay Organization which also houses Cathay-Keris Films. Cathay-Keris Films is ‘The Hunger Games’ movie distributor in Singapore.

What do you think? We think it’s certainly great promotion step taken by Cathay Cineplexes and we are excited to see what they have up on their sleeves next!

‘The Hunger Games’ is currently slated to open in Singapore on March 22, 2012.

UPDATED: Hunger Games Fireside Chat Episode 32 – “The Hungry Games” Promo

EPISODE 32 – “The Hungry Games”

Click here to listen LIVE 

Episode 32 of  Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live on Tuesday, 8th November 2011, 11am SGT.

 This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol. We’ll also be joined by Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net (make sure to congratulate her on getting Fan of the Weekthis week!), Sam of District Tribute, Tiffany ofVictor’s Village (and F*** Yeah District 12 andWelcome to District 12), and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty.

We hope you’ll join us this Tuesday morning! Here’s what you can expect:

– We’ll begin by weighing in on the cast photos and interviews in the December 2011 issue of Vanity Fair.
– We’ll react to Woody Harrelson’s recent interview with MTV. What do we think about his self-described “unconventional” interpretation of our beloved character? Many seem to think that he’s reinventing Haymitch and breaking canon; what do you think?
– At 10:30pm ET, we’ll interview Emily Ansara Baines, author of The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook (you can pre-order it at Amazon by clicking here).
– What is Panem World? We’ll give you a sneak preview!
– Professor Adam gave us all a homework assignment last week: Read Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery (a veryHunger Games-esque tale) and come prepared to discuss it! We’ll share our interpretations of this classic American short story.

🙂

By the way, watch out for me and Vanora (your Hunger Games SG admins) during the PANEM WORLD Segment of the Podcast!

UPDATE: Missed listening to Hunger Games Fireside Chat ‘live’? Well, you can now listen to the recorded version of it here!
