Stephanie Leigh Schlund Talks Cashmere with Hydrogen Magazine

Stephanie Leigh Schlund (Cashmere) recently sat down with Hydrogen Magazine and talks a little about her Catching Fire character.

HM: Let’s talk about The Hunger-Games: Catching Fire. First of all, what does it feel like being
caught in the eye of this crazy storm, with the fans and the huge success of the film?

SLS: It’s been a wild ride! When I got the role, I had to keep it my little secret until I was announced but nothing could have prepared me for this. It’s been my life for last year solid but honestly, our fan base is amazing. They are so sweet and warm and it’s been such a blessing.

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]?

Stephanie Leigh Schlund as Cashmere

Official Casting: Stephanie Leigh Schlund To Play Cashmere in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Stephanie Leigh Schlund to play Cashmere

Lionsgate announced today that Stephanie Leigh Schlund is to play Gloss’ sister, Cashmere:

Santa Monica, CA, August 14, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Stephanie Leigh Schlund has been cast in the role of Cashmere in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former Career tribute from District 1, Cashmere and her brother Gloss are both competing in the Quarter Quell.

Katniss doesn’t say much about the character during her first meeting with her and her brother aside from the fact that her attempt “to connect with them are mediocre at best.”  Of course, there’s the way that Cashmere is killed off, which would probably be enjoyable to some viewers to see as Johanna Mason has a hand in that.

Not much is listed about Stephanie on her IMDB, but this is what Lionsgate puts as her credits:

Stephanie Leigh Schlund is an Atlanta, Georgia based actress who has appeared in television series including Drop Dead Diva, and films including “The Last Song”.  She can next be seen in the upcoming Fox series The Following, premiering this Fall.

Now that we have both victors from District 1, let’s see if my prediction of Blight will be announced tomorrow!
