“I screen-tested for Katniss. But knew I didn’t get it, because in the screen test, he was like, ‘Why don’t you read this other part?'” Zoey revealed on the Lights Camera Barstool podcast.

Overall, she admits “that one was a little painful.”

But Zoey says that isn’t the only painful audition experience she’s had — especially considering that she recently had to give an award to a group of actors who all landed roles she wanted.

“At one of these award shows, I gave like the Best Limited Series award out and every single one that was nominated, I had auditioned and not gotten it,” Zoey explained.

She explained that during the pandemic, there were only four projects that she auditioned for that she really wanted — and she didn’t get any of them.

“I wanted to be like, ‘And the award doesn’t go to…don’t worry, if you lose, I lost too! I didn’t get any of these parts!'” Zoey joked.
