The lucky girl is Jennifer Lawrence who appeared in The Winter Bone (2010) and will be appearing in The Beaver(2011), Like Crazy (2011) and X-men: First Class (2011). I haven't seen her on screen yet but Suzanne Collins has thrown her support behind Lawrence who is excited to have landed the role.

I stumbled across this Hunger Games short produced by Mainstay Productions. Katniss and Rue features Danielle Chuchran as Katniss and a girl named Savannah Kylie Lewis as Rue. The girls do a fantastic job acting out this particular scene and I would have loved to see them take on the roles in a movie length adaptation. So this is for entertainment purposes only and has nothing to do with the Lionsgate film.
