Euphoria's Hunter Schafer cast as Coriolanus Snow's cousin Tigris in The Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

Euphoria star Hunter Schafer has reportedly been cast as Tigris Snow in Lionsgate's prequel The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

The 23-year-old transgender trailblazer's character is the cousin/confidante of 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow, who eventually became the callous autocratic ruler (Donald Sutherland) of the Capitol and all of Panem.

In Suzanne Collins' 2020 novel, the once wealthy Snow family are surviving on boiled cabbage and old outgrown clothes while living in an apartment they can't afford after their factory in District 13 was destroyed.

Billy the Kid action star Tom Blyth will play Coriolanus, who's assigned to mentor District 12 tribute Lucy Gray Baird (West Side Story's Rachel Zegler) as she competes in the 10th annual Hunger Games.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes - hitting US/UK theaters November 17, 2023 - will be directed by Grammy winner Francis Lawrence who previously helmed Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part One, and Mockingjay Part Two.

The first four sci-fi dystopian films of the Hunger Games franchise, starring Jennifer Lawrence, received mostly good reviews and amassed a total $2.9B at the global box office between 2012-2015.

On June 13, Hunter - who boasts 7.3M Instagram followers - shared a snap of herself in Düsseldorf, Germany where she's been filming Tilman Singer's horror film Cuckoo alongside John Malkovich, Gemma Chan, and Sofia Boutella.

Schafer famously made her acting debut as 17-year-old trans girl Jules Vaughn in Sam Levinson's critically-acclaimed teen drama Euphoria, and HBO renewed it for a third season in February.

The Prada brand ambassador also co-executive produced and co-wrote the episode titled 'F*** Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob - Part 2: Jules' which aired last year.

Hunter's life of LGBTQIA activism began as early as 2013 at age 13, and she appeared as a plaintiff in the ACLU's case to overturn North Carolina's HB2 'bathroom bill' at age 17.

Schafer - the daughter of a Presbyterian pastor - transitioned after being diagnosed with dysphoria at age 14.
