New photoshoot and interview with The Hunger Games stars Isabelle Fuhrman and Amandla Stenberg

Drew Barrymore photographed seven upcomers from Hollywood and The Hunger Games actresses Isabelle Fuhrman and Amandla Stenberg find themselves in the list.

Check out photos of the actresses in the gallery here.

Isabelle on Clove:

To moviegoers around the world, the character Clove in The Hunger Games is a vengeful teenage assassin. But to Isabelle Fuhrman, the actress who played her, the character is more nuanced. “In my mind, Clove was never an assassin,” she says. “I imagined her as having a very tragic life with specific moments that drove her to become, for lack of a better word, crazy.”

Amandla on getting the role of Rue:

“When my agent called to tell me I was going to play Rue, I literally started running around the room and hyperventilating. I kept shouting, ‘I’m Rue, I’m Rue!’” she remembers. “My mother had to get me a glass of water and tell me to take deep breaths. We have it all on tape. It’s funny to watch.” While on set with Barrymore, Amandla shared her enthusiasm for photography by asking the budding lenswoman for advice. “[Drew] told me she liked to shoot happy accidents, and that when a photograph comes out naturally you’ll love it.”
