Rachel Zegler was privately interviewed by PEOPLE on Thursday at the London premiere of the newest Hunger Games film.

The lead actress, 22, who plays Lucy Gray Baird, a tribute to District 12, spoke about her first visit to the Capitol of Panem, which was just over ten years ago, as she was posing on the red carpet.

Zegler described her moviegoing experience as “going to the cinema to see it with my sister & my mom.” She was ready, but she was unable to say the same for a different audience member.

The woman sitting next to my sister said, “When the mutts stepped out, she started screaming, ‘What’s gonna happen next?'” She had never read the books or watched the movie before.

The majority of fans of The Hunger events are aware that mutts, often referred to as muttations, are vicious animals that The Capitol produced to provide some excitement for spectators as the tributes attempt to survive the events.

Francis Lawrence, the director of The Ballad of The songbirds and Snakes, discussed the striking differences between Zegler and Lawrence’s characters in a September conversation with Empire magazine.

“Katniss was a survivor and an introvert. She was so silent and austere that one could almost argue she wasn’t gay. The opposite is Lucy Gray,” Lawrence said.

He said, “Lucy Gray loves crowds.” She is skilled at manipulating people and playing to audiences.”

According to Lionsgate’s film synopsis, the next movie is a forerunner to the 2012 blockbuster and is set “64 years after Katniss Everdeen had accepted a contributions, and long before Corinthians Snow elected the tyrannical President of Panem.”

Snow, age eighteen, is portrayed by English actor Tom Blyth, best known for his work on Billy the Kid. Josh Andrés Rivera, who starred in West Side Story, is Zegler’s lover and plays Sejanus Plinth.

Other actors in the movie include Oscar nominee Viola Davis as the wacky, cruel, and eccentric Gamemaker Dr. Volumnia Gaul, and Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer, who plays Tigris Snow in her feature debut.

Monday marks the release of The Hunger Games, a The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes in theaters.
