It was not always Jennifer Lawrence! These actresses were going to be Katniss in ‘The Hunger Games’

Think of the actress Jennifer Lawrence is to think of two important papers in your career, Mystique within the saga of X-Men and in Katniss Everdeen in the saga of ‘The Hunger Games’being these two characters are very important in your development as an actress, but apparently this was going to be very different, as other actresses went on to star in ‘The Hunger Games’ before Jennifer Lawrence.

The saga of ‘The Hunger Games’ was one of the most successful within this new stream of movies youth, having four productions between 2012 and 2015in addition he is working on a prequel of name ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’, where you will explore the beginnings of this post apocalyptic world, but without the presence of this academy award-winning actress.

But a recent report confirmed that other actresses went on to star in ‘The Hunger Games’, since more than 20 actresses audicionaron for this important role, and some of them were close to having the leading, among the most important are: Chloë Grace Moretz (‘Kick Ass’), Lyndsy Fonseca (‘Kick Ass 2’), Kaya Scodelario (‘The Maze Runner’), Abigail Breslin (‘Zombieland’), Emma Roberts (‘Scream Queens’), Saoirse Ronan (‘Lady Bird’), Hailee Steinfeld (‘Bumblebee’), Emily Browning (‘Sucker Punch’), Shailene Woodley (‘Divergent’), among many others.

Finally the author, Suzanne Collins, decided to opt for Jennifer Lawrence who, according to the novelist, reflected the qualities of the protagonist, which helped to choose subsequently to the other members of the cast, but apparently his then-recent work in ‘X-Men: First Class’ also, it was in part decisive to opt for this younger face to take over the reins of the franchise.
