You’d have to think that getting cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would be high on the list of just about any actor right now. As fans, we’ve spent months now talking about who we’d love to see in the movie. One actress that gets a lot of support for the role of Johanna Mason, is Glee’s Naya Rivera. She had a chat to Radar Online who asked her how she felt about so many fans reaching out to let her know how much they’d love her to be in Catching Fire.
Naya explains that she’s a big fan of The Hunger Games herself:
She started as Santana, the bad-girl Cheerio who only joined the glee club as a spy for her cheerleading coach. But against all odds, stunning actress and singer Naya Rivera has turned her Glee character into a fan favorite. Now those fans have a goal: use Twitter and Facebook to land her a role in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Naya, 25, talks to Star about the flattering campaign.
Q: Did you enjoy The Hunger Games?
I started reading the books before I even knew they were making it into a movie. I’m just a huge fan. I would love to play Johanna Mason. She’s the axe-wielding ex-tribute and former winner. She’s a grade-A badass!
Q: Are you surprised by the outpouring from fans?
It’s so exciting. I get tweets every day, and it feels good that they get behind something I’m passionate about.
So what do you think? Could you see Naya as Johanna Mason?
