Recently, a whole slew of actresses have been joining ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’. The two-parter from director Francis Lawrence has seen Julianne Moore, ‘Game of Thrones’ star Natalie Dormer, and newcomer Stef Dawson take on roles in the final chapter for Katniss Everdeen and the rebellion. Now, yet another talented actress has joined the fray.
According to Deadline, Lily Rabe will portray Commander Lyme in both chapters of ‘Mockingjay’. Lyme is a past victor from District 2 who becomes one of the Rebellion leaders in District 13. Known for her roles in ‘No Reservations’ and ‘What Just Happened’, Rabe most recently made an impact on Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, ‘American Horror Story’, which begins a new season based on the history of witches and witchcraft in America on October 9, 2013.
With all the great talent such as Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Philip Seymour Hoffman already attached, the last hurrah for Lionsgate’s hit young adult franchise is sure to go out with a bang.
