Well tributes, we’ve been waiting for this news for a long time and the day has finally arrived–we have our Coryo! People exclusively announced that Tom Blyth has been cast as young Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes!
Here’s what director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson had to say about the casting:
“Coriolanus Snow is many things — a survivor, a loyal friend, a cutthroat, a kid quick to fall in love, and a young man ambitious to his core,” says Lawrence, 51. “Tom’s take on the character showed us all the complex ambiguities of this young man as he transforms into the tyrant he would become.”
“Tom’s performance will both fulfill and disrupt everything you think you know about Coriolanus Snow,” adds producer Nina Jacobson. “He’s a tremendous talent who will show why Snow always lands on top.”
Let us know your thoughts on the casting and be sure to tune into Tribute Talk tonight! We’ll be discussing all our thoughts on the casting with our fellow tribute friends! Listen live tonight on YouTube! at 6pm PST / 9pm EST!
