Earlier this year, Glee actress Naya Rivera let it be known that she’s a huge fan of The Hunger Games and that she’d love to play Johanna in Catching Fire. Entertainment Weekly recently put her forward as someone who was a potential fit for the part.
It seems that many of her fans like the idea too and have let Naya know that they’re right behind her.
In a new interview with Radar Online, she talks the support she’s received and how she’s long been a fan of The Hunger Games:
Q: Did you enjoy The Hunger Games?
I started reading the books before I even knew they were making it into a movie. I’m just a huge fan. I would love to play Johanna Mason. She’s the axe-wielding ex-tribute and former winner. She’s a grade-A badass!
Q: Are you surprised by the outpouring from fans?
It’s so exciting. I get tweets every day, and it feels good that they get behind something I’m passionate about.
So what do you think about Naya as Johann Mason? We’d love to know what you think.
