Leven & me opening night
Finally, I've seen Colombiana! I went to the movie's opening night last night with 15 friends and family members, including fellow Hunger Games Tribute Leven Rambin aka Glimmer. Meant so much to me that they came. A big shout-out to everyone around the country who also went. Dayo Okeniyi aka Thresh tweeted me a picture of his ticket stub. Couldn't have wished for a more fun opening night! I'm sending big prayers to everyone who is feeling the effects of Hurricane Irene. Because of the storm, the organizers of the MLK Memorial weekend in D.C. had to postpone this weekend's events until September or October. I was scheduled to appear on a panel today. I hope I'll get to go later. Keep safe, everybody!
My character, Cataleya, witnesses a horrible tragedy.
Just eight more days until Colombiana! It's pretty intense and filled with lots of action and thrills. I won't be able to see it before it opens on August 26, so you're just have to fill me in until I get the chance!
Hope you've been following all the news about The Hunger Games on the official website and Facebook pages. Thanks so much to all the fans for all your support! I'm loving all the feedback on my Facebook and Twitter and am so excited to bring my character, Rue, to the big screen. And if you haven't already read the series by Suzanne Collins, run to your nearest bookstore so you can understand what all the excitement is about.
So excited to read the reviews of my very first movie, Colombiana, in the Hollywood Reporter and Variety. The movie doesn't come out until August 26 in the United States, but it was released in France on July 27. There are billboards all over the place and friends have seen the ads on TV. Check out the reviews for yourself and go see Colombiana opening weekend. I play Zoe Saldana's character, Cataleya Restrepo, as a child, and I got to do some awesome stunts after training with David Belle, who created Parkour. Talk about working with the best! ...
