DECATUR, Ga. -- Thirteen years ago, Dwayne Boyd decided to pursue his passion full time and threw himself into the world of acting.
Looks like that turned out to be a great move.
Since then, he's been in more than 30 films and TV shows, but says his role as a peacekeeper in "The Hunger Games" is certainly a highlight.
"Two other peacekeepers and I had to pinch ourselves every day on the set just to make sure it was real," he laughed.
Boyd was pictured in Entertainment Weekly as part of a cover story on the movie. He is featured in the movie's "reaping scene," the only peacekeeper with a speaking role.
He said before the movie, he didn't know really know much about "The Hunger Games" and decided not to read the book so he could develop his own idea of the character.
When he's not on the big screen, Boyd runs Premiere Actors Network in Decatur, teaching acting classes to kids and adults.
