The odds are in her favor as 27-year-old Josh will play Sejanus Plinth, a District 2 tribute mentor at the 10th Annual Hunger Games and a close friend of young Coriolanus Snow, played by Tom Blyth. Meanwhile, Rachel, 21, will star as Lucy Gray Baird, a tribute from impoverished District 12 in the stewardship of Snow. And ICYMI, he becomes the tyrannical President of Panem in the OG movies.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpents is certainly a long way from their last joint project, where they happened to meet. Unfortunately, the duo tried to keep their love under wraps — even while promoting Steven Spielberg’s musical. (In December, Rachel secretly posted a series of photos, including one of her hugging Josh, which made her feel like she was “great love.”)
