First Look At Jennifer Lawrence & Liam Hemsworth Filming As Katniss & Gale!

Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth each take their new dark locks on the set of ‘The Hunger Games’ to film the Reaping scenes

Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth got together on the set of The Hunger Games in North Carolina today to film the very important scenes centered around the Reaping. Both female and male extras lined up as possible District 12 tributes, although we obviously already know Katniss and Peeta (where’s Josh Hutcherson?!) are the ones headed to the Capitol.

Both Jennifer and Liam had to dye their hair dark brown to play Katniss and Gale. This is our first look ever at Liam as Gale, what do you guys think?

The first Reaping of the books is vital to The Hunger Games trilogy. If Prim hadn’t been selected, then Katniss never would have volunteered which set off the chain of events for the riveting three novels which are now being adapted into movies.

With filming underway in North Carolina, we are so excited to get more info on what is happening. Local news anchor Russ Bowen is giving updates on Twitter while fans are photographing things like the District 12 sign on the side of a building.

Are any of you in North Carolina? Do you have any stories to share about filming? And what do you think of Jennifer in Katniss’s mom’s special blue dress for the reaping? Do you like Liam as Gale more now that you see him in character? And are you desperate to see Josh as Peeta? Sound off below!
