“Pandemonium, excitement.” “A lot of energy. A lot of 12-year-old girls crying.” That’s what Bruno Gunn and Meta Golding respectively say their lives have been filled with ever since they embarked on their press tour for “Catching Fire.” You can hardly blame them for perhaps overstating the case.
Cast members from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stop at the Mall of America Tuesday as part of their National Victory Tour. Cast members appearing include Jena Malone, who plays Johanna; Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick; Meta Golding, who plays Enobaria; and Bruno Gunn, who plays Brutus.
