Watch: Amandla Stenberg Forgives Jack Quaid for "Hunger Games" Death

Amandla Stenberg forgives, but they never forget. 

The actress, who played Rue in 2012's The Hunger Games, finally confronted Jack Quaid, who played Marvel in the film, in an exclusive E! News video from Comic-Con 2022

For those who don't remember—or those who would just rather forget—Marvel accidentally killed 12-year-old Rue while attempting to stab Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the franchise's first film.

Now, more than a decade after its initial release, Amandla addressed the man responsible for their cinematic demise.

"Hello, Jack. It's been so many years," Amandla said in the video. "It's taken me time to recover. Sometimes I still get a jabbing pain through my abdomen and I'm reminded of the time you murdered me. But we all have our faults and I forgive you."

A clearly stunned Jack dropped to his knees and shouted "Yes!" upon Amandla's reveal.  

"Yes, oh my gosh. Thank you for letting this happen," Jack said. "Oh my god, people were spitting on me in the streets for years!"

Hey everybody, we can stop spitting on Jack!

After taking a few seconds to process, Jack joked, "I'm getting emotional, everybody move on. I'll recover eventually."

We're not sure if we will.

Amandla is soon to be seen alongside Pete Davidson in Bodies Bodies Bodies, opening in theaters August 5, and it was just announced that they are set to star in the Star Wars series The Acolyte for Disney+.

Jack, meanwhile, stars on Prime Video's superhero smash hit The Boys and lends his voice to Paramount+'s animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks

So, we always knew that Amandla and Jack had moved on professionally. But the knowledge that Rue and Marvel have moved on, as well? 

We'd volunteer as tribute for that news any day.
