Lily Rabe signed on in September to play this former Hunger Games victor from District 2, who emerged to become a leader of the rebellion in District 13. The actress was forced to drop out recently due to a previous commitment to the Shakespeare in the Park play Much Ado About Nothing.
Director Francis Lawrence began production in September on both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 in Atlanta, with shooting scheduled to wrap later this spring in locations near Paris and Berlin. One of the locations in Berlin is the massive Tempelhof Airport, which was constructed in 1927 and used by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi's as a symbol of their supremacy. The facility closed down six years ago. The production will also be using a number of massive apartment complexes outside of Paris for battle sequences.
Gwendoline Christie plays Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones, which kicks off its fourth season on Sunday, April 6. She previously starred in director Terry Gilliam's 2009 film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
