‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Gwendoline Christie Joins Final ‘Hunger Games’ Movie

Game of Thrones” actress Gwendoline Christie is replacing actress Lily Rabe as the Commander Lyme character in Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.”

Rabe was forced drop out due to a scheduling conflict with a previous commitment to perform in “Much Ado about Nothing” at Shakespeare in the Park.

The Commander Lyme character is one of the leaders of District 13 and hails from District 2 as a past victor of a Hunger Games.

Christie plays a bodyguard named Brienne of Tarth on “Game of Thrones.” The English native is  6-foot-3.

“Mockingjay – Part 1” hits theaters on Nov. 21 and “Mockingjay – Part 2” will be out on Nov. 20, 2015. Director Francis Lawrence began shooting the two films in Atlanta in September with production concluding later this spring near Paris and Berlin.

The studio decided in mid-2012 to split the final “Mockingjay” book of the Suzanne Collins trilogy into two movies. Lionsgate has booked Berlin’s massive Tempelhof Airport — built in 1927, reconstructed by the Nazis as a symbol of supremacy, and closed six years ago — and huge apartment complexes outside Paris for shooting battle scenes.

The first two “Hunger Games” films have grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide.
