Although Jennifer Lawrence has portrayed some intense characters over the past few years and also experienced her share of grueling schedules and tasks associated with each, the Oscar award-winner has recently communicated that none of those schedules compare to the intensity she has faced while filming the Mockingjay installments to the Hunger Games franchise.
Part 1 and Part 2 of Mockingjay were filmed simultaneously over a 155 day time period, which was extremely arduous and grueling for the cast and crew. As Entertainment Weekly shared, the production took the cast “from soundstages in Atlanta to locations in and around Paris to a final wrap in East Berlin, where the leads all got a bit emotional after completing such an arduous task.”
The cast spoke openly about how exhausted the filming experience made them and noted, mainly, how they felt on the final day of shooting. Lawrence, in her usual verbally expressive manner, noted “It was so emotional that I was completely numb and dead inside.”
