One more actor down in the race to cast The Hunger Games! The Hollywood Reporter writes that the pivotal role of Katniss’s sister Primrose Everdeen will be played by Willow Shields. Newcomer Shields only has two credits to her name, but one of them, a TV movie called Beyond The Blackboard, will air this Sunday on CBS if you want to acquaint yourself with her. The role of Prim isn’t huge, but it’s certainly one of the most important characters in the story.
News of Shields’ casting comes a day after the announcement that Elizabeth Banks may play Effie Trinket in the film, and that District 1 tributes Marvel and Glimmer will be played by Jack Quaid and Leven Rambin.
