Francis Lawrence is back with a new ‘The Hunger Games’ film, but this will be a prequel to all the movies. The movie ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes’. It will serve as the origin of the world of Panem and the games. The film is based on Suzanne Collins’ 2020 book. The cast includes Rachel Zegler, Hunter Schafer, Viola Davis, Tom Blyth, and others.
The story of ‘The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes’ will focus on Coriolanus Snow, played by Tom Blyth. Hunter Schafer will play Tigris Snow, the sister and confidante of Coriolanus. The actress made her acting debut with Sam Levinson’s teen drama ‘Euphoria’. In the series, she played Jules. ‘The Hunger Games’ prequel will be her second project, and the actress thinks that playing Tigris was more difficult than Jules.
Hunter Schafer Admits Playing Jules In ‘Euphoria’ Was Like Playing Herself
Playing Tigris Snow will be a departure for Hunter Schafer from the role she played during her first venture, ‘Euphoria’. Jules was a naive teenager who was treading and finding her footing while being in a turbulent relationship. However, Snow is a mature woman who is an advisor to her cousin, Coriolanus.
During an interview with ET on the red carpet during the premiere of ‘The Ballads of Songbirds And Snakes’, she said that playing Tigris helped her step out of her comfort zone. Hunter said, “Tigris kind of feels like the first character piece I’ve really done that’s not like a teenage girl who is kind of like one step away from who I am. It was a challenge for me.”
