When the first The Hunger Games movie came out in 2012, actresses Willow Shields and Amandla Stenberg were just 12 and 14 respectively. Now fast forward 3 years and these beautiful young women have truly blossomed into Hollywood stars!
This actress played the touching role of Primrose Everdeen so well in the first movies and will probably be flawless in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 2. Since then Willow has continued making movies as well as working on her modeling and building up her personal brand. As a contestant on the last season of Dancing with the Stars, Willow performed an amazing tribute to The Hunger Games series in a dance with professional Mark Ballas.
At just 15 years old, Willow Shields has been on the cover of Seventeen Magazine and attended awards shows such as the MTV Music awards and the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards. With all of these accomplishments at such a young age, she has nowhere to go but up!
This now 16 year old actress tore our hearts out in the first Hunger Games movie. Amandla Stenberg's portrayal of Rue was beyond perfect. If you didn't cry when she died then you must be a robot (kidding of course). She hasn't acted in any big films since playing Rue but has done some voice acting as well as appeared in some television shows. Similar to Willow Shields, Stenberg's modeling career has really taken off! She has been featured on the cover of Girl's Life as well as Justine magazines.
Not only is Stenberg extremely beautiful and a gifted actress but she is extremely intelligent and well spoken as well. Check out her video on cultural appropriation, a extremely prevalent issue we face in America today.
The pair recently posted this awesome picture proving that they really have grown up! No matter where they go in their careers they will always be Prim and Rue to me!
