Stephanie Leigh Schlund Talks ‘Catching Fire’ with Hydrogen Magazine
The gorgeous Stephanie Leigh Schlund, who will be playing District 1 Victor Cashmere in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, recently sat down to talk with Hydrogen Magazine about herself and her career. Of course, the topic of being part of the Hunger Games franchise came up, and she gave us a little insight on her character and some interesting comments about her experience on set.
HM: You play Tribute ‘Cashmere’ from District 1. And Cashmere and her brother Gloss (Alan Ritchson) battle Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson’s characters for the title in the 74th Annual Hunger-Games Quarter Quell. Tell me all about Cashmere.
SLS: Cashmere is a mass manipulator who uses her -beauty to get what she wants. She is from District 1 and has been trained from birth to fight, and she is also a natural born killer, so, kind of a double dose. She fears little and that confidence may get best of her. It was great working with Jennifer [Lawrence] one on one. She is Cashmere’s nemesis because Katniss is winning hearts and Cashmere is trying to do the same as she needs votes to stay in the game.
HM: Do you see any of yourself in Cashmere?
SLS: I wouldn’t have very many friends if I did [laughs]! I can relate on a fashion level, but that’s about it!
HM: Most unexpected moment while shooting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire…
SLS: Do you know what it’s like to stare at the back end of a horse for three days [laughs]?
