Who is the deadliest Hunger Games star?

The Hunger Games is set in a dystopian future US, in which a bunch of randomly selected teens are thrown into a barbaric fight to the death, as ‘entertainment’ for the oppressed masses in the 12 districts.

In Catching Fire , previous winners are forced to reenter the arena for the Quarter Quell celebrations. Among the contestants are Katniss Everdeen (archery maestro), Finnick Odair (trident wielder), Johanna Mason (axe ace), and Peeta Mellark (erm, face-painter extraordinaire?). Inside the arena, relationships count. The tributes you choose to side with could mean the difference between life and death.

So naturally we got to wondering, 'if the Catching Fire cast got slung into a real-life Hunger Games situation, who would they want as an ally, and who’d be the deadliest one to watch out for?'

We asked Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright and Stanley Tucci, as well as director Francis Lawrence. Who do you think was the most popular choice?

Find out who they think is the deadliest Hunger Games star in the video below:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in the UK on 22 November 2013.
