Rue is described "as looking about ten" and has "bright dark eyes and satiny brown skin". She reminds Katniss of her little sister Prim, and Katniss immediately takes a liking to her. In the Games, Rue is what reminds Katniss of home. As a character, she is loveable, and unforgetable to the reader. I chose the actress Madison Pettis. You may remember her from the Disney movie, The Game Plan and the TV show, Cory in the House. She tiny, cute, and has dark hair and eyes. I'm sure she could darken her skin with a little bit of makeup, but her stature is very small for a 12 year old! Perfect match for Rue!
