'Wrath' actress Stef Dawson is set to be featured in the final two films as Annie Cresta, a victor from District 4.
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" and its future follow-up have just added new cast member, The Hollywood Reporter learns. In the two final films, both of which will be directed by Francis Lawrence, Australian actress Stef Dawson will be introduced as Annie Cresta, a District 4 victor who is in a relationship with Finnick Odair, played by Sam Claflin.
The inclusion of Dawson, who starred in "Wrath" and "Shadow of the Monarch", comes days after Paramount announced Natalie Dormer's involvement in the "Mockingjay" movies. The "Game of Thrones" darling has been tapped to star as Cressida, who is described as a resident director from the Capitol who joins the rebellion.
Both upcoming installments will still feature Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who makes his first appearance in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", as Plutarch Heavensbee.
Julianne Moore is expected to come aboard as well. If she indeed has been in talks and eventually agrees to join, she will portray District 13 leader Alma Coin, a manipulative politician who clashes with Katniss as her methods and motivations draw suspicion.
"Mockingjay, Part 1" and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2" will be released in 2014 and 2015 respectively. "Catching Fire" is set to open nationwide on November 20.
