Prior to snagging the lead role in The Hunger Games as revolutionary symbol Katniss Everdeen, Jennifer Lawrence was an up and coming actress who had just been nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Winter's Bone. Lawrence's demanding schedule while filming The Hunger Games did not slow her down, she went on to garner additional critical acclaim for her work in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and most recently Joy.  She even took home the Best Actress in a Leading Role Academy Award for Playbook. Up next, Lawrence will be seen in the highly anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse and the thriller Passengers alongside Chris Pratt.

We've loved Josh Hutcherson since his days starring in some of our favorite childhood films like The Polar Express and Bridge to Terabithia. However, his role as Katniss' love and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark is what catapulted Hutcherson into a entirely different level of fame. Post Hunger Games, Hutcherson has put on his producing hat, producing and starring in the film Escobar: Paradise Lost. Hutcherson has several films slated for release from now until 2017, including the James Franco directed The Long Home. The 23-year-old is a long time ally of the LGBTQ community.

Willow Shields was just 10-years-old when she snagged the part of Katniss' younger sister Primrose in The Hunger Games franchise. It is because Prim's name was called it the reaping, that Katniss entered the games. Therefore, it was Shields' character that helped spark a revolution. Since wrapping The Hunger Games, Shields went on to compete on ABC's Dancing With the Stars, and she is currently set to star in the upcoming thriller A Fall From Grace. Check out her interview with us here.

We all fell in love with teen sensation Amandla Stenberg when she appeared as Rue in the first installment of The Hunger Games films. Though, Rue didn't survive the first film, Stenberg has continued to be an amazing presence in popular culture as an outspoken voice on feminism and cultural appropriation. She recently graced the cover of Teen Vogue with a standout feature entitled, "Things Black Girls Are Tired Of Hearing". Acting wise, Stenberg has continued to have roles on television including Sleepy Hollow and Mr. Robinson and she will appear in the '90s set film As You Are later this year.

These days, Kravitz is focusing on his music, though he did make a cameo appearance in Zoolander 2. He also gave us an unexpected treat last year when his pants ripped on stage, and we all got an eye full. Oh and, in case you didn't know he is the father of Divergent star Zoe Kravitz.

As a result of Katniss and Peeta's defiance, the 74th Hunger Games did not end well for Head Gamekeeper Seneca Crane. However, actor Wes Bentley ran with his success from the Hunger Games franchise.  Bentley went on to star in American Horror Story and he will be in the upcoming films Pete's Dragon and Upcoming Vows. Though Bentley initially found success after starring in 1999's American Beauty, his struggle with substance abuse caused his career to stall for some time.
