Tom Blyth Possibility of More ‘Hunger Games’ Prequels

Tom Blyth, known for portraying Coriolanus Snow in “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes,” has expressed his eagerness to further explore his character’s past and rise to power in the repressive government of Panem. In an interview with ScreenRant, Blyth disclosed his interest in revisiting the backstory of his character, originally played by Donald Sutherland in the original trilogy.

Motivation and Aspirations

While promoting the second season of his current project, “Billy the Kid,” Blyth shared that there’s still more to explore about President Snow’s narrative.

He stated, “It’d be a no-brainer. I feel like I was so fortunate to get to step into that world, and I really love everyone involved: Francis Lawrence, Nina Jacobson, and Suzanne Collins. But it would be really cool to keep digging into that story…I think they were very excited to reignite the world, and I think people feel like within that reigniting, there’s more to do.”

Blyth continued his sentiment and showed curiosity about possible future storylines. He expressed, “There’s more to Coriolanus’ story to delve into, whether he’s the lead character or a periphery character…it’d be fascinating to see his continued rise to power and what happens along the way.”
