So much for the Finnick Odair casting rumor, let’s head on to the Johanna Mason at the moment. According to Indie Wire’s The Playlist, Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki were in the mix to play the axe-wielding victor from District 7 named Johanna Mason. If you have read the books, Johanna has a major role in the second and third book. Katniss said that Johanna is like a big sister who doesn’t like you. She’s very rude, fearless and seems to contradict Katniss a lot. But despite the toughness, Johanna lives a lonely life back in her district since she got no family. Probably, they’ve been killed after Johanna won in the Games just like Haymitch.
We all know Mia Wasikowska played Alice in Alice in Wonderland and she’s Josh Hutcherson’s big sister in “The Kids Are Alright.” She also played the titular role in Jane Eyre.
On the other hand, Zoe Aggeliki will be seen with Ryan Reynolds in “R.I.P.D.” She will also play the role of Silena Beauregard in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.”
According to The Playlist:
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.
