Congratulations BELLO mag’s cover boy Alexander Ludwig on his MTV Movie award June 3, 2012 Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Alexander Ludwig were presented tonight with the MTV Movie Award for Best Fight (in The Hunger Games)! Here bellow you can find the interview with Alexander Ludwig published in BELLO mag #33 (available on APP Store). Originally Published February 2012. Coincidentally being an extreme sports competitor, Canadian born, Alexander Ludwig, has been stirring some buzz playing opposite to Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth in Lionsgate’s most anticipated action thriller in 2012, THE HUNGER GAMES, based on the best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy by Suzanne Collins, where a competition to the death takes place in the distant future. He last starred in Disney’s hugely successful RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN, opposite Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino, which opened #1 at the U.S. box office. A USC student and writer/musician, Ludwig has our full attention here at BELLO MAG as a definite rising st You started your career as a child actor. How do you feel that has influenced your acting as a young adult today? Starting as a young boy has given me more time to exercise my craft. Hunger Games is the most anticipated movie of the year, how did you prepare yourself for the filming of the movie, and how have you prepared yourself for the reaction of the audience as to what it will do for your stardom and career? I was drawn to the role of Cato because he’s twisted and complex. To prepare, I worked, first, on creating a more physically dominant character by training with the Navy Seals and by becoming proficient with sword fighting. Additionally, I prepared mentally by studying Cato’s inner demons and adopting them into the role. It’s hard to prepare yourself for unexpected accolades when it is obviously the entire cast and crew who contributed to the success of the Hunger Games franchise. You love to act, play and compose music, compete in extreme sports activities, and attend a prestigious school such as USC. Which do you prefer and why? My heart lies in music and acting, however, my inspiration comes from the adrenaline rush I get from extreme sports… and life. If you weren’t doing all of the above, what would you be doing instead? It’s impossible to imagine because I can’t fathom doing anything else. Who’s career do you dream of having? I look up to Leonardo de Caprio. He has an incredible work ethic, chooses phenomenal projects, is tremendously talented, and still seems to lead a normal life. What do you like least about this industry? I dislike the way the industry compromises people as individuals. What is your greatest fear? Greatest fear: Not living life to it’s fullest. What is your strongest attribute? Never being afraid to take a leap of faith. What is your most valued virtue; in yourself and in anyone that surrounds you? Integrity, credibility, and honor. What is your motto? Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today. -James Dean Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
