From a popular hit TV show on HBO to a popular hit movie on the big screen. That’s the kind of day it’s been for Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer as the actress has been added to the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Like Harry Potter and Twilight, the popular movie series The Hunger Games will split it’s final installment into two, but Dormer is set to appear in both films.
Per the official Twitter account of Lionsgate Entertainment:

Fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones will recognize Dormer form her role as Margaery Tyrell but her role in The HUnger Games: Mockingjay is one of a slew of big screen performances she will have over the next year or so.
In addition to landing a spot in the cast of The Hunger Games, Dormer will be appearing in Ridley Scott’s The Counselor as well as Ron Howard’s F1 racing movie Rush. Both look to be in the running for awards this year which means in addition to starring on the award winning series Game of Thrones, we may be seeing a lot more of Dormer in big time roles across the board.
