Actors Who Were Almost Cast As Katniss Everdeen


Following her successful Nickelodeon show “Unfabulous,” Emma Roberts experienced a flourishing career with appearances in various films during the late 2000s, including “Aquamarine,” “Nancy Drew,” “Hotel for Dogs,” “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” and more. Given her status and experience, it was unsurprising that she was among those who landed an audition for the role of Katniss Everdeen. “I was definitely interested in it, but it was just one of those things that didn’t end up happening,” Roberts told MTV. Despite missing out on the coveted role, Roberts maintained her enthusiasm for “The Hunger Games” franchise. In the same MTV interview, she shared her love for the books and conveyed her excitement for the movie.

The failed audition did not derail her career trajectory. In the following years, she transitioned to more mature roles in the horror and thriller genres, with projects like “Scream 4,” “American Horror Story,” “The Blackcoat’s Daughter,” and “Scream Queens.” Considering her performances in those genres, it might’ve been interesting to see what Roberts would’ve done with the character Katniss, given the dark subject matter of “The Hunger Games.”
