Next Factor: 'The Hunger Games' Star Willow Shields

22 March 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »



Although Katniss was the role most big-name Hollywood actresses were vying for, her little sister Primrose has a very important role in "The Hunger Games." If Prim's name hadn't been called at the Reaping, Katniss would still be chilling back in District 12 with Gale instead of fighting for her life (and the entertainment of Panem and the Capitol).

Playing little Prim is a big deal for a fresh face like Willow Shields, and we'll be getting to know her better and better as "The Hunger Games" catches fire. Get the scoop now.

What She's Done: This is Willow's first big role. She was in one episode of "In Plain Sight" and then had a small role in the Hallmark TV movie "Beyond the Blackboard."

What She's Doing Now: She's Primrose Everdeen, aka Prim, the little sister of Katniss. »
