On Hunger Games:

Her next break was to be cast in Hunger Games (2012). She played Glimmer, the beautiful and resilient tribute from District One, who is stung to death by bees. “I remember being extra nervous at the audition. I thought I was never going to get it, so I just kind of went all out—just to be able to say that I did—and somehow I got it!”

On Percy Jackson:

A natural blonde, the actress had to go brunette to portray Clarisse La Rue, the daughter of Ares, the god of war. “I got to be something completely different than myself in this fantastical world,” she says. “My character is a tough warrior, a really mean chick, who doesn’t take crap from anyone, and who can’t see that she is ever wrong or that she is ever being mean.”

On growing up in Texas:
