Meta Golding Cast as Enobaria in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’; Apply to Be an Extra on the Atlanta Set
Posted on Tuesday, August 7th, 2012 by Angie Han
Just about all the major pieces are now in place for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and not a moment too soon. During yesterday’s announcement that Sons of Anarchy actor Patrick St. Esprit would be co-starring District 12 Peacekeeper Romulus Thread, I noted that former District 2 victor Enobaria was perhaps the last new character remaining to be cast. Today comes news that the part has just gone to Meta Golding, a Haitian-American actress whose previous credits include Day Break, Criminal Minds, and Dark Blue.
But while most (if not all) of the bigger supporting roles are spoken for at this point, there are still plenty of bit parts remaining to be cast. Hit the jump for more info on Golding’s casting, plus details on how to snag a job as an extra on Catching Fire.
The Francis Lawrence-directed second installment of the Hunger Games franchise follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) embarking on a victory tour around Panem. As they dutifully make the rounds, they come to realize that a major rebellion against the Capitol is brewing. The story sees them crossing paths with several other previous Games winners, including Mags (Lynn Cohen), Finnick (Sam Claflin), Johanna (Jena Malone), Beetee (Tony Shaloub), and Wiress (Amanda Plummer). A Career tribute, the brutal Enobaria is known for having won in her year by ripping out another tribute’s throat with her teeth.
Fortunately, those interested in becoming extras on Catching Fire likely won’t have to do anything quite so vicious to get in. A casting call has just gone out for extras who can help out when filming begins in Atlanta next month, and On Location Vacations got the info on how to apply. (To clear up any confusion, The Idiom appears to be the working title for Catching Fire.)
