Last week, Gloss was cast in the person of Alan Ritchson, who happens to be rumored as one of the contenders for the role of Finnick Odair. Today, Gloss’ sister Cashmere is cast and the actress who will play it is Stephanie Leigh Schlund. If I’m not mistaken Stephanie played Liam’s sister in “The Last Song.” Therefore, Liam and Stephanie will be working again together in Catching Fire but they don’t have a scene together since Gale (played by Liam) is not part of the Third Quarter Quell.
Here’s Lionsgate’s official press release:
