Willow Shields spills her most memorable Mockingjay moments


Being part of a multi-million dollar franchise is not easy, but Willow Shields makes it look like a walk in the park. We have loved being able to see her character Prim mature in the movies and stand up for what’s right—and the latest Hunger Games flick is no exception.

We got a chance to catch up with our December/January 2014 cover girl in this GL exclusive about The Hunger Games: Mockinjay – Part 1 (in theaters Nov. 21) and there are two things you should be on the lookout for when you catch her new movie in theaters.

You’ll heart Prim’s wardrobe.

“I think it would have to be Prim’s nursing outfit,” Willow tells us when we ask about her favorite Hunger Games costume this time around. “I love the way it represents everything Prim is becoming, everything she is meant to do with her life. It also shows how much more grown up she is becoming. It’s amazing being able to play a character that grows and changes so much throughout the series.”

There’s one major line you need to remember. 

“There are a lot of great quotes in Mockingjay,” the starlet spills on her favorite scenes. “But I think my favorite is, ‘People don't need wings to survive. Mockingjays do.’”

We’re going to be hitting up theaters when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 rolls out and can’t wait to see Prim’s wardrobe—and lines—unfold on the big screen.
