Deadline is reporting that Game of Thrones actress, Gwendoline Christie, will be replacing Lily Rabe in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Lionsgate has confirmed that Christie will be joining the production.
Christie will now be taking over the role of Commander Lyme in the highly anticipated Huger Games finale. Unfortunately, Rabe was forced to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. The actress is involved with a production of Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare in the Park.
Commander Lyme is one of the leaders of District 13 and originally was from District 2. Lyme is a powerful character as she also was a winner of a previously unknown Huger Games.
What do you think of this casting change? Do you think Christie was the right replacement for the role?
