The Game of Thrones star opened up about his character in The Hunger Games saying, “I love the tragedy in Highbottom because he’s dealing with the guilt of the consequences of co-creating the Games because it’s now out of his control. The genie has been uncorked and running mad and he can’t get it back in.”

Peter continued, “To Highbottom, Coriolanus represents his father; he looks and sounds and behaves like him, at least in my mind. Highbottom has a feeling that history is going to repeat itself, and he doesn’t trust this young man and has an eye on him for good reason.”
