Rachel Zegler on her role as Lucy Gray Baird in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes: “She is hesitant to trust, and challenges Snow to rise to her level of intimidation”
Talking about her character, Rachel Zegler said, “The words that come to my mind are ‘mercurial' and ‘witty’. The way I approached Lucy Gray was that she was only there for her family, her friends, and herself. That’s why her relationship with Coriolanus is so interesting. We’re led to believe, by the lyrics of her songs, that she’s been wronged by many people, particularly by men. So, she is hesitant to trust, and challenges Snow to rise to her level of intimidation.”
Further adding on, the actor also said, “Lucy Gray starts to see what it’s like to put someone else’s needs before her own, and she’s living with her whole heart. But when she starts to see traits in Coriolanus that she may not find trustworthy, she must put herself first and make impossible decisions.”
Lionsgate and PVRINOX Pictures will release The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes in theatres in India on November 17, 2023.
