Stef Dawson Cast as Annie Cresta in THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY

By AMC August 28, 2013

Landing a part in "The Hunger Games" franchise is like winning Willy Wonka's golden ticket. Stef Dawson is the latest addition to the franchise, joining "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2" as Annie Cresta.

Annie is Finnick's love interested, played by Sam Claflin in the upcoming films. She is a very complex and interesting character that we see develop throughout the course of the remaining films. While I'm personally less familiar with Dawson's work, she certainly aesthetically resembles what Annie should, from my interpretation from reading the novels.

The next film in the franchise "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", is opening this November and is being directed by Francis Lawrence, opposed to the first film which was helmed by Gary Ross. Lawrence will stick with the franchise for the remaining two films in the "Mockingjay" series.

Based on the novels by Suzanne Collins, the next films follow Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the unjust Capitol. A new cast of characters such as Annie join the team, and the plot thickens as new truths are realized about the state of the Country and how the districts began in the first place.
