Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth)
''Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,'' says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ''They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that's another really nice moment they have alone.'' ''This is the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,'' say producer Nina Jacobson.
