Gwendoline Christie hunger games mockingjay
Brienne of Tarth is going to Panem!

Variety reports that "Game of Thrones" star Gwendoline Christie is replacing Lily Rabe in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2."

Rabe had to drop out due to a scheduling conflict with her upcoming performance in Shakespeare in the Park's "Much Ado About Nothing" this summer in New York City.

Now, Christie will take over the part of Commander Lyme, a leader of the rebellion who hails from District 2. Like Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Lyme was a victor of a past Hunger Games.

Tall and strong, Christie certainly looks the part of the fierce commander. In "Game of Thrones," she plays the sword-wielding warrior Brienne of Tarth, who's become a fan favorite for clashing with Jaime Lannister.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" hits theaters this fall, while "Mockingjay: Part 2" follows in fall 2015.
