Where 'Game of Thrones' meets 'Hunger Games'

Natalie Dormer is moving from one deadly "Game" to another.

The 31-year-old actress has been cast alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the two-part finale of "The Hunger Games" saga, "Hunger Games: Mockingjay."

Dormer is a familiar face on the small screen, having portrayed Anne Boleyn on "The Tudors," Irene Adler on "Elementary" and, of course, Margaery Tyrell on "Game of Thrones."

But in the "Mockingjay" movies, she'll bring the rebel Cressida to life.

Dormer isn't the only "GOT" star who's also steadily building a movie career: Kit Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, is starring in February's action drama "Pompeii."


Directed by "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" helmer Francis Lawrence, the first half of "Mockingjay" will bow on November 21, 2014, with the second half arriving on November 20, 2015.

But before she joins heroine Katniss Everdeen's battle against the oppressive Capitol in the "Hunger Games" series, Dormer will next appear in Ron Howard's "Rush" on September 27.
