Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne

Gale Hawthorne is a hunter and a coal miner from District 12, who became Katniss Everdeen's best friend and lover. Together, they escaped to the forest to hunt, which was forbidden by the Peacekeeper. He vowed to take care of both his and Katniss's family when she took her sister's (Prim) place as a tribute in the Hunger Games. He is secretly in love with Katniss and was forced to watch Katniss play star-crossed lover with Peeta Mellark, District 12's male tribute.

In Catching fire, wherein Katniss and Peeta were forced to join in the Quarter Quell, together with the other former victors, to kill each other in the 75th anniversary of the Games, Gale once again was left to provide for two families. He also held a personal grudge towards the Capitol when he was whipped 40 times by the Head Peacekeeper, after being caught illegally hunting a turkey. Katniss comes to his aid.

But he proved himself to be a rebel when he joined the rebellion against the Capitol, orchestrated by President Alma Coin and District 13. This is after District 12 was bombed to ashes due to Katniss's escape from the arena, a secret mission long planned by the current Game-maker, Plutarch Heavensbee, and the other victors. Gale survived and brought both his and Katniss's family to District 13.

There he became part of the rebellion with Katniss as the Mockingjay and joined her and the others on a mission to infiltrate the Capitol and kill Snow. He often spent time with Beetee to help create weapons against the Capitol. In relation, he chose a military bow and arrow as his personal weapon. Gale also found himself comforting Katniss every time Peeta aired in interviews and was branded as a traitor together with the other victors. Instances happened that he tried to convince Katniss to let Peeta go. Then again, he volunteered to save Peeta from prison.

Since Catching Fire to Mockingjay, Gale had been confused as to whether Katniss lover or her not. But in the end, when he, Katniss and Peeta, faced, he made Peeta realize that it is him who Katniss truly love having seen her kiss him during the Quarter Quell.

Famous Lines from the Hunger Games Trilogy

----Hunger Games (2012) ----

"We could do it, you know. Take off, live in the woods. What we do anyway."

"You root for your favorite, you cry when they get killed. It's sick."

"Listen to me. You're stronger than they are. You are. Get to a bow."

"They will if you show 'em how good you are. They just want a good show. That's all they want. If they don't have a bow, then you make one, okay? You know how to hunt."

---- Catching Fire (2013) ----

"People are looking to you, Katniss. You've given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it."

"That's what happens. You spend six days a week working in the mines and stupid birds start to think they own these woods."

---- Mockingjay Part 1 (2014) ----

"I'm in pain. That's the only way I get your attention."

"I would have to be dead to forget that ... Maybe not even then."
