Mia Wasikowska and Model Actress Zoe Aggeliki Up For Catching Fire’s Johanna Mason

Catching FireHunger Games Alert. Or Rather Catching Fire Alert. Johanna Mason, the female victor of an unidentified Games from District 7, last living victor of District 7, and  youngest Third Quarter Quell may be cast soon.


Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for the sly cunning role of Johanna Mason. The character becomes a strong ally with Katniss and Peeta during the 75th Hunger Games, but has a testy relationship with Katniss who likens her to an older sister who hates you.


Director Francis Lawrence has been looking at both big names and unknowns for the part, as evidenced by the two first actresses named as possibilities for the role.


Catching Fire


Over the past couple of years, Wasikowska’s climbed from relative obscurity to become one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood, thanks to well received turns in Alice in WonderlandThe Kids are All Right, and Jane Eyre, among other things. She’ll next be seen in the star-studded bootlegging drama Lawless, and is currently shooting Richard Ayoade’s Fyodor Dostoevsky-inspired comedy The Double.


But if Wasikowska is still something of an up-and-comer, Aggeliki is such a total newcomer that she actually hasn’t appeared on the big screen yet. But she seems to be on the rise as well, with upcoming roles in the comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. and the YA sequel Percy Jackson: Sea of MonstersCatching Fire could very well be her next step toward the top
