Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer cast in Hunger Games Mockingjay

Final two-part film will see Dormer play Cressida whose character has an interesting look

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer will have to adopt a whole new look for her part in the final Hunger Games installment, Mockingjay.


The Hunger Games finale, which will be broken up into two separate films, will see Dormer play Cressida, a Capitol resident who ends up joining Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen as she revolts against President Snow’s regime.

Dormer may have to wave goodbye to the flowing locks of her character Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones too, as Hunger Games websites describe Cressida as having a shaved bald head and vivid green vine tattoos.

Dormer, who has also starred as Irene Adler in the US show Elementary, will join returning Hunger Games stars Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth (as Gale Hawthorne) and Josh Hutcherson (as Peeta Mellark) for both parts of the final installment.

Lionsgate tweeted the news last night, but there’s a fair way to go before Dormer has to get the razer out – the second installment of the franchise, Catching Fire, doesn’t reach cinemas until November.
