Lionsgate has given us the actress who will be playing Enobaria, the female victor of from District 2 who gets reaped back into the arena for the Quarter Quell.
Santa Monica, CA, August 7, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Meta Golding has been cast in the role of Enobaria in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. A former career tribute from District 2, Enobaria is known for the particularly brutal, disturbing way in which she came to win The Hunger Games.
Everyone should remember her, as this is what Katniss says about her in the book:
Enobaria looks to be about thirty and all I can remember about her is that, in hand-tohand combat, she killed one tribute by ripping open his throat with her teeth. She became so famous for this act that, after she was a victor, she had her teeth cosmetically altered so each one ends in a sharp point like a fang and is inlaid with gold.
I never thought of Enobaria being so beautiful as this lovely looking actress, but hey, there’s no shortage of beauties in Hollywood, I suppose.
Golding is known to television audiences from series regular and guest starring roles on “CSI,” “Criminal Minds,” “House,” and “Cold Case” and will also be seen in the upcoming independent film The Chicago 8.
Of course, there’s still a few more cast members to be announced, so we’ll keep you posted!
