Okay, not really. But Gwendoline Christie, the actress who plays the intimidating yet awkward Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones, has been cast in Mockingjay: Part 2 as Commander Lyme, one of the leaders of the “obliterated” District 13. Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) was originally cast in the role, but had to back out due to scheduling conflicts, although she is still listed on IMDb as Lyme at least for Part 1 (a slow update, perhaps?).
Christie joins fellow GoT star Natalie Dormer in the final installment of the Hunger Games series with Dormer playing Cressida, a director from the Capitol who chose to side with the rebellion against President Snow and his iron-fisted regime.
Mockingjay: Part 1 will be in theaters November 21, 2014, and Part 2 will be released November 20, 2015.
