Willow Shields is one of the celebrity contestants competing in Season 20 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars." She teams with professional partner Mark Ballas.

Willow Shields is most notably recognized for her role as Primrose Everdeen in the "The Hunger Games" franchise. The New Mexico native began acting at the age of seven when she followed her brother to an audition and booked a role in USA Network's "In Plain Sight." She was in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "Beyond the Blackboard," as well as R.L. Stine's "The Haunting Hour." However, it was her breakout role as Prim, the sensitive-but-strong younger sister to Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in the worldwide phenomenon "The Hunger Games" which bought her instantaneous international fame. Willow reprised her role as the caring, young healer in "Catching Fire," "Mockingjay – Part 1" and "Mockingjay – Part 2."

Shields has always been very passionate about fashion and, very early in her career, caught the attention of several world-famous designers, including Marc Jacobs who was adamant about dressing the young starlet for a variety of events and award shows, even coining her as his muse in Nylon Magazine. Most recently, Shields made headlines with a cutting edge, eclectic look that turned critics' heads when she appeared at NYC Fashion Week.

Shields' shares a special connection with her young fan base and consciously tries to inspire them to be positive role models in their communities. Leading by example, she is a vocal advocate for Operation Smile, a charitable organization that provides free surgeries to repair facial deformities for children around the globe. She also serves food at various homeless shelters including the Manna Foodbank, she participates in the STOMP Out Bullying Campaign. When a tornado devastated the town of Moore, Oklahoma in May, 1993, Willow traveled to the community to help with the rebuilding efforts.

When she isn't working, Shields loves immersing herself in books and indulging in photography, exploring it as a powerful art form for self-expression.
