The Hunger Games on Facebook
We previously learned that Alan Ritchson would be playing District 1 tribute Gloss in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and now we know who’ll be portraying his sister, Cashmere.
Stephanie Leigh Schlund has been cast as Cashmere, a former Career tribute from District 1 who, along with her brother (who is also competing in the Games), is enamored of the Capitol.
Per The Hunger Games Facebook page, Schlund grew up in the Atlanta area, and in 2008 while on a trip to Los Angeles, she found herself becoming one of the newest models on the popular game show “The Price Is Right.” Soon after she accepted roles in Lifetime’s hit series “Drop Dead Diva”, Nicholas Sparks/Disney’s The Last Song, and Fox’s highly anticipated new series “The Following”, set to air this fall.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be directed by Francis Lawrence and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has sold more than 50 million books in print and digital in the U.S. alone.
Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
