If you’re still weeping over the cancellation of All My Children, we have good news!

Hey, if anyone can whet our appetite for an adaptation of a teen novel, it’s this stunning lady.

The Hunger Games is about attractive teens fighting to the death on live TV. Is this going to be the next Twilight?
It’s a lot more stimulating. Everything is high-stakes, and it’s a lot darker.


Tell us about your role.
I play Glimmer, one of the competitors. She has this crazy sexuality that she tries to manipulate people with, but once she gets into the arena she’s a
vicious killing machine.


You and Jennifer Lawrence have some intense catfights!
Filming it was funny—chasing her and screaming that I’m gonna slit her throat! It was way more interesting to play a mani­acal character than one that’s similar to me.


We bet your role on All My Children was pretty, um, dynamic.
I was a twin, I was autistic, I was married, I was divorced. I had a half-sister who was a prostitute, and I played her as well.


Having been a child actor, do you feel like you missed a real high school experience?
No. I had some pretty gnarly experiences growing up in New York—every night was prom!


You’re 21 now. How’d you celebrate your birthday?
I was on set in North Caro­lina. We went to T.G.I. Friday’s! I didn’t even have a drink. But now I like a dark ’n’ stormy if I feel festive.


Make ours a double!
