Hunter Schafer joins Tom Blyth as Coriolanus Snow and Rachel Zegler as Lucy Gray Baird in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes the movie. Coriolanus Snow is power-hungry, willing to kill to get ahead in life and ruthless enough to attempt to kill the girl he loves and a boy who is supposedly his best friend.

It is even suggested that she may have prostituted herself to get money for the family, showing how willing she is to support the ones she loves.
