Find out why...
Variety reports that Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) is replacing Lily Rabe as Commander Lyme in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2. Rabe was forced to leave the Lionsgate production due to a scheduling conflict as she is set to perform in Much Ado about Nothing at Shakespeare in the Park.
Lyme is one of the leaders of District 13. She is from District 2 and has a former winner of the Hunger Games. Christie is a six-foot-three actress best known for playing Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones.
Mockingjay - Part 1 arrives on November 21 and Mockingjay - Part 2 will be out on November 20, 2015. Francis Lawrence began shooting the films in Atlanta last September with production set to end this spring near Paris and Berlin. Lionsgate booked Berlin's Tempelhof Airport (built in 1927 and rebuilt by Nazis as a "symbol of supremacy") and huge apartment complexes outside of Paris for battle scenes. The first two films have earned over $1.6 billion worldwide.
