Euphoria star Hunter Schafer is set to join the cast of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes as Tigris.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes has just grown its cast even further, adding up-and-coming actress Hunter Schafer. The Lionsgate prequel to the hit YA trilogy is based on Suzanne Collins’ 2020 novel, The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, which tells the story of a young Coriolanus Snow. The studio previously revealed that West Side Story star Rachel Zegler would play District 12 tribute Lucy Gray Baird, alongside Tom Blyth (Billy The Kid) as Snow himself.

Lionsgate previously revealed five other cast members for The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. Schafer will join Jerome Lance as Marcus, a tribute from District 2; Knox Gibson as Bobbin from District 8; Mackenzie Lansing as Coral from District 4; Ashley Liao as Clemensia Dovecote, and Aamer Husain as Felix Ravinstill, who are each District 11 mentors. The cast is full of fresh faces on the rise, and they’re certain to create a stir among fans of The Hunger Games franchise.

Schafer will portray Tigris Snow, who is Coriolanus’ cousin and confidante that advises him in every aspect of his life. She not only guides him in his own role as mentor, but even directs his moral compass. She will surely have something to say when Coriolanus forms a relationship with Lucy, which greatly affects his outlook on the games.

Hunter Schafer, who made her onscreen debut in HBO’s Euphoria, has already made a huge impression on the industry in a very short time. Not only has she champion civil rights as a trans activist in the public sphere, but she has even ventured into voice acting with the English dub of the anime film Belle.

The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who is already very familiar with The Hunger Games as director of the last three films: Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part One, and Mockingjay Part Two. Under his watchful gaze, and with fantastic talent such as Schafer on board, it can be assumed that fans of the books and movies alike will be deeply invested in the outcome of the newest film.
