She’s making the commute from Westeros to Panem.
“Game of Thrones” actress Natalie Dormer has been cast in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 & 2,” Lionsgate announced Thursday.
The British beauty, best known as Lady Margaery on the HBO fantasy series, will play Cressida, a film director who joins the rebellion against the Capitol to document Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrece) for propaganda purposes in the movie adaptation of the final book in Suzanne Collins’ dystopian trilogy.
Dormer, 31, has been on a meteoric rise since her breakthrough turn as Anne Boyelin on Showtime’s The Tudors. After smaller parts in the Madonna directed “W.E.” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” in 2011, “Game of Thrones” helped propel her to a whole other level of recognition on this side of the Pond. She’ll next be seen in director Ron Howard’s “Rush,” out next month.
