Rumor: Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki Being Considered for Johanna Mason
It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard any rumblings from Hollywood, but today saw an exclusive from the Playlist, who says that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki are “in the mix” for the role of Johanna Mason.
Sources close to the project tell The Playlist that Mia Wasikowska and model/actress Zoe Aggeliki are in the mix for 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. She’s a fierce competitor, who has no family and friends left in District 7 where she hails, with her weapon of choice being an axe. Director Francis Lawrence is keen on finding the right actress to fit the part is looking at both big names and lesser known talents.
Neither actress is new to young adult roles with Zoe appearing in next year’s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Mia starred in Alice in Wonderland. Also, some of you may remember that Mia acted alongside our very own Josh Hutcherson in The Kids Are All Right. Thoughts on either of them possibly landing the role?
