Wright: Sad goodbye to Hunger Games

Jeffrey Wright has talked about the "bittersweet" feeling of coming to the end of The Hunger Games.

The Boardwalk Empire star plays Beetee in the films and said at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 that he was sad to see the back of the adaptations.

Mockingjay Part 2 is still to come, but has already been filmed by the cast.

Asked if it was sad to leave behind, he said: "Oh God, it was. It was the end of a long journey, longer for some than others, but the last day that we filmed in Berlin, it really felt like the resolution of a significant idea and a significant piece of work, so it was bittersweet."

Jeffrey added that he had loved working with Jennifer Lawrence, who stars in the films.

He said: "Jen's a hoot. She's one of the funniest people you'd ever want to meet. Like razor-sharp wit. She's like the most enjoyable diva you'd ever want to meet. She's many things, but above all else she's a really extraordinarily talented artist."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is released in cinemas on November 21.
