Actress Cast As Annie Cresta For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
Real Or Not Real?
Australian actress Stef Dawson has landed an important role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay films.
This news comes on the heels of Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer landing the role of Cressida. Other than the rumor Julianne Moore might play President Coin, this is the only other confirmed Mockingjay casting.
Dawson is set to play Annie Cresta from District 4. [SPOILERS] While a tribute in the Hunger Games, she had a traumatic experience (don’t they all?) and wound up winning by default but the experience left her with extreme mental issues. When she’s reaped for the Quarter Quell, the older District 4 tribute Mags volunteers to take her place. Both Finnick and Mags mentored her for her Hunger Games, and she and Finnick eventually marry and have a child. Though we learn of her in Catching Fire, she doesn’t make her appearance until Mockingjay.
Dawson doesn’t have many big-name roles to her name but of you’d like to see some of her work, check out some clips she’s posted on Vimeo.
