Panelist of the Week: Rebekah Tuesday 01 May, 2012

To help you all get to know our regular panelists a bit better, we’ll be spotlighting one (or two!) here each week!

This week, we’d like you to meet Rebekah! Rebekah is a writer at Victor’s Village, the driving force behind the Armie Hammer for Finnick Odair campaign, and a factory worker at Emerald, District 8’s only vegan clothing and accessories source!

Which is your favorite book in the series?
Rebekah: Hands down, it’s Catching Fire. I think it’s sort of the calm before the storm, and the book where everyone’s character is truly established, everyone from the first book that is. I also love it because of the introduction of the rich new characters, like Finnick, Johanna, and Beetee. It’s also honestly the book that prompted the most emotional responses from me.

What do your friends and family think of your Hunger Games obsession?
Rebekah: My family tolerates it at best, but I’ve had some pretty good discussions with my mother about the first two books (she still hasn’t read Mockingjay, which is a source of true frustration for me), and the first film now that I finally dragged her to see it. My friends for the most part tolerate it as well, except one friend who’s just as obsessed with it as I am I think, which was a relief to discover a couple of months ago, ’cause I could finally talk about the series with someone face to face, and she doesn’t think I’m insane.

Which district would you most like to live in?
Rebekah: I’m from the Pacific Northwest myself, which is where I always figured District 7 was situated. I like trees, and rain, and real weather, so I’d like to think I could make it in District 7, especially if Voodoo Doughnut still magically exists there.

Which Hunger Games character do you think you are most like?
Rebekah: Sometimes I think I’m very Johanna-esque, other times I think I’m a lot like Katniss. I can be quite blunt like both of them, but I’m much better at expressing my feelings than dear Katniss. We’re never one thing, so call me Joniss, or something?

Which two tributes (victors included) would you most want to ally with in the arena?
Rebekah: Finnick, ’cause, hello — it’s Finnick! Katniss, she’s extremely capable, probably a hell of a lot more than me, but I’m not afraid to skin a squirrel.

If you could ask Suzanne Collins ONE question about the series, what would it be?
Rebekah: What was the moment like when you realized you had to change Peeta, or hijack Peeta?

What are some of your interests outside of The Hunger Games?
Rebekah: Right now I’m finishing up my very last term at university, and finally getting my B.A. in English with a minor in film studies. So, my life is pretty much school, school, school, writing articles for Victor’s Village, running the Armie Hammer for Finnick “Campaign,” exercise, sleeping, and eating. I also like to write fiction on the side, and I’m seriously thinking of adapting several original and non-original works into screenplays. I’m also an avid photographer, and have had two gallery showings of my work, no sales though — that would have been nice.
