RUMOR: Mia Wasikowska And Zoe Aggeliki Are In Running For Johanna Mason
According to The Plyalist, both Mia Wasikowska And Zoe Aggeliki are “in the mix” of actresses being considered for the role of Johanna Mason.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” spoilers below.
Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for Johanna Mason. The character becomes a strong ally with Katniss and Peeta during the 75th Hunger Games, but has a testy relationship with Katniss who likens her to an older sister who hates you. She’s a fierce competitor who has no family and friends left in District 7 where she hails, with her weapon of choice being an axe. Director Francis Lawrence is keen on finding the right actress to fit the part, and is looking at both big names and lesser known talents.
Both actresses have been in discussions for the part, and we hear that Aggeliki could sign in the coming days, but nothing is certain just yet. Aggeliki may not be a familiar face at the moment, but she’ll be seen next summer in “R.I.P.D.” and also landed a role in “Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters” as Silena Beauregard. Whoever does snag the role will not only appear in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” but in “Mockingjay” as well, as Johanna figures strongly in that story as well. Production on ‘Catching Fire’ begins later this year, and the film will hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
