Isabelle Fuhrman is a American actress who portrayed Clove, the female tribute from District 2, in The Hunger Games film.[1] She is the daughter of journalist Elina Fuhrman and Nick Fuhrman. Also, she is the sister of Madeline Fuhrman.

Many critics have praised her performance as Clove, identifying her as a breakout star.

Fuhrman began acting in 2006 and is best known for her role in the film Orphan, for which she received critical acclaim. She appears often in The Hunger Games: The Official Illustrated Movie Companion
