Posted 04.20.11 by Mandy
In a press release today, Lionsgate announced that another Hollywood newcomer will make her debut in The Hunger Games. Willow Shields has been cast as Primrose Evergreen, little sister to the heroine Katniss. Director Gary Ross seems to be enthusiastic about this casting decision saying, “Its so exciting to find an amazing young actress like the one we just met. Prim is an emotionally demanding role and in many ways she is the cornerstone of the story. Willow Shields will make an amazing Prim and we're very lucky to have her.”
Sheilds will join other newcomers Dayo Okeniyi and Amandla Stenberg who will play Thresh and Rue, as well as Jack Quaid who was just announced yesterday to be cast as Marvel.
These Hollywood newbies will be joined by Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), and Leven Rambin (Glimmer).
