The Mockingjay casting announcements continue! Last week, we learned that Game of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer would take on the role of Cressida in the Hunger Games sequels, but now we’ve learned who will be playing the ill-fated Annie. The Hunger Games‘ official Twitter account revealed on Monday that newcomer Stef Dawson would be taking on the role of the former District 4 victor.
In case you need a refresher, Annie is Finnick’s love interest who (SPOILERS!) went insane after seeing her fellow District 4 tribute get beheaded in the 70th Annual Hunger Games. However, at the end of Mockingjay, she eventually gave birth to their son.
Stef’s on screen paramour certainly seems to be thrilled with her casting as he tweeted:
