Willow Shields is most notably recognized for her role as Primrose Everdeen in the The Hunger Games franchise. The New Mexico native began acting at the age of seven when she followed her brother to an audition and booked a role in USA Network's In Plain Sight. She was in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie Beyond the Blackboard, as well as R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. However, it was her break-out role as Prim, the sensitive but strong younger sister to Katniss Everdeen in the worldwide phenomenon The Hunger Games which bought her instantaneous international fame. Willow reprised her role as the caring, young healer in Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part 1, and Mockingjay Part 2. Shields has always been very passionate about fashion and, very early in her career, caught the attention of several world-famous designers, including Marc Jacobs who was adamant about dressing the young starlet for a variety of events and award shows, even coining her as his muse in Nylon Magazine. Most recently, Shields made headlines with a cutting edge, eclectic look that turned critics' heads when she appeared at NYC Fashion Week.

Leading by example, she is a vocal advocate for Operation Smile, a charitable organization that provides free surgeries to repair facial deformities for children around the globe. She also serves food at various homeless shelters including the Manna Foodbank, she participates in the STOMP Out Bullying Campaign. When a tornado devastated the town of Moore, Oklahoma, in May 2013, Willow traveled to the community to help with the rebuilding efforts.
