The Woman Who Created Effie’s Hairstyle Talk About Being On The ‘Catching Fire’ Set

Ann Bray who worked with lead hairstylist on Catching Fire and created Effie’s hairstyle talks about what it was like being on set!


Asked what it was like to work so closely with a star of Banks’ wattage, Bray fondly recalls Banks hanging out during lunch, “standing in line with the crew and wearing  her little cut-off jeans with holes in them and her little tied-up shirt.”
Then Banks sat down for lunch with Bray and Bray’s daughter Shelby Zimmerman, who also worked on the Catching Fire hair team.  “We had a good ol’ time. She’s very, very nice and outgoing,” Bray says. Banks signed the pink-pages of an autograph book Bray brought to the set “Ann, stay happy. You rock. XOXO Elizabeth Banks Effie”.
