CATCHING FIRE Looks At WASIKOWSKA And AGGELIKI For Johanna Mason
The hype for Catching Fire has already started with a lot of buzz over who will play the role of Finnick Odair, but there is also the role of Johanna Mason that has yet to be cast. Today we hear that two names are on the potentials list and they are Mia Wasikowksa and Zoe Aggeliki.
In the second book of The Hunger Games, the character becomes an ally to Katniss and Peeta. Her relationship with Katniss is said to be like that of an older sister. She is a strong competitor with no family or friends.
New director Francis Lawrence is looking at both sides of the casting including big names and unknowns, keeping everyone in the running.
The character will also have to continue on to do Mockinjay as the character is featured prominently in the final book of the series. Aggeliki could sign a deal this week, but things might change. She is a relative unknown, but she has picked up roles in R.I.P.D and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
