Hot on the heels of casting relative unknowns in the roles of Rue and Thresh, another newcomer is added for the pivotal role of Prim!

The cast of The Hunger Games is quickly filling out, and today we have the name of the actress who has landed the role of Katniss’ little sister Prim — Willow Shields! The New Mexican newcomer no doubt beat out most of young Hollywood for the pivotal role as the person who in some ways sends Katniss to The Hunger Games.

It is Prim who is actually selected in the lottery to be sent to the Games, but Katniss immediately volunteers herself in Prim’s place. Though the role is somewhat slight in the first book, it expands greatly throughout the series.

So other than a few Capitol workers, Tributes, Haymitch and Katniss’ mother, almost all of the roles have now been cast. Are you excited about the latest casting news HollywoodLifers?
