Hunter Schafer Joins The Cast Of Hunger Games Prequel Movie
American actress, model, and LGBTQ rights Hunter Schafer has stepped into the cast list. Teen Vogue included Schafer on its “21 Under 21” list in 2017 for her advocacy against the North Carolina Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act.
Hunter Schafer, who played Jules Vaughn in Euphoria, is the newest actor to be cast in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, The Hunger Games prequel.
The actress will take on the role of Tigris Snow, Coriolanus Snow’s cousin, who offers him guidance from his role as a mentor to the foundation of his moral compass.
More About Her Role In The Hunger Games Prequel!!
Schafer will appear in the film along with The Gilded Age’s Tom Blyth and West Side Story’s Josh Andrés Rivera and Rachel Zegler. The young Coriolanus Snow, portrayed by Donald Sutherland in the first film series, will be played by Blyth
in the lead role.
The Hunger Games prequel will center on the life of 18-year-old Coriolanus, who fans of the series will already recognize as the dictatorial president of Panem before he assumes office.
Coriolanus Snow is the last hope for his dwindling lineage. According to the movie’s official synopsis, this once-proud family has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. The young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Ziegler), the girl tribute from impoverished District 12, with the 10th annual Hunger Games drawing near.
Snow believes he might be able to change the odds in their favor after Lucy Gray seizes Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony.
Francis Lawrence, who also helmed the franchise’s Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part One, and Mockingjay Part Two, will helm the movie.
The same-titled novel by Suzanne Collins, published in 2020, served as the inspiration for the screenplay.
According to a recent update, the movie was “moving along really, really well” in pre-production.
On November 17, 2023, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes will be released in theaters.
