Willow Shields plays Katniss’ sister Primrose Everdeen
In 'The Hunger Games', Katniss volunteered to take the place of her little sister, Primrose, when she was reaped for the 74th Hunger Games. Now, Primrose is growing up and discovering her own skills as a healer. Also growing up rapidly is the actress who plays her, Willow Shields, who returned to set a more mature version of herself – and taller by nearly a foot. “I’ve definitely grown up with the character,” laughs Shields.
As 'Catching Fire' begins, Shields explains that Primrose has developed her own talents.
“She's following in the footsteps of her mom, and she's become like a doctor for District 12. She’s in the process of becoming a very strong person after everything she’s been through with Katniss," said Shields.
