Catching Fire Character Profile: Annie Cresta

| May 9, 2012 | 29 Comments More

“Did she get better after?” I ask. “I mean, her mind?”
“I don’t know. I don’t remember ever seeing her at the Games again. But she didn’t look too stable during the reaping this year,” says Peeta.

Annie Cresta was the female tribute from District 4 and victor of the 70th Annual Hunger Games. During which she fell witness to the beheading of her district partner. An incident which scarred Annie, and drove her to insanity. She hid throughout most of the games, until an earthquake flooded the arena. At that point it was being from District 4 that saved Annie, as she was able to swim while the other tributes drowned.

During the Reaping of the 75th Annual Hunger Games, otherwise known as the Third Quarter Quell, Annie’s name was called again. But Mags, her old mentor volunteered to take her place.

“A hysterical young woman with flowing brown hair is also called from 4, but she’s quickly replaced by a volunteer, an eighty-year-old woman who needs a cane to walk to the stage.”

We do not see a great deal of Annie in ‘Catching Fire‘, but she influences much of the storyline. It is revealed to Katniss that she is incredibly precious to their fellow Quell Tribute Finnick Odair. We later learn that Annie is Finnick’s one true love,  and that he would do anything to keep her safe.

“So that’s who Finnick loves, I think. Not his string of fancy lovers in the Capitol. But a poor, mad girl back home.”

Personality: At first Annie looks like a very disturbed young woman. She often is closing her eyes and covering her ears, laughing at strange times, and staring into the distance. She often keeps quiet and to herself, but lights up whenever Finnick is around. He is the only one that can bring her out of her episodes.

“Did you love Annie right away, Finnick?” I ask.
“No.” A long time passes before he adds, “She crept up on me.”

  1. I says:

    Zooey Deschanel would be peeerfect!

  2. Rorymellark says:

    I was watching Inception the other day and I thought Ellen Page (Ariadne) would be great as Annie. She might be a little young, but I think she would be awesome.

  3. Cara says:

    For me the “young adult Finnick” would be perfect-for Finnick Odair.

  4. Kristin and Danielle says:

    we r hoping they pick someone new cause we would both love to play annie!!!!!!she is one of our fave charaters and we love the hunger games movie and book series sooo much!!!!!!

  5. C says:

    What about Emilia Clark, she would be perfect angelic for it! I think her skills would be better suited for a more in to depth role but she just looks to sweet for Johanna Mason. For Johanna Mason perhaps Lyndsey Fonseca

  6. Emma says:

    I think Zoey Deschanel could be a great Annie. She’s a good actress and she looks like the character described in the book.

  7. Jasmine says:

    For some weird reason, even after reading the books and description I picture Annie being a red head! o.O

    • Ericka says:

      I did too!

    • I like the color blu :) says:

      I pictured Finnick as a red head :3 But a lot of the people that I know pictured him as either a brunette or blonde.

    • Nia says:

      I pictured Johanna as a red head…but they got a brunette for her. Anyway….I think Nina Dobrev would be perfect! Or maybe (don’t hate me for this!) Rihanna???? Maybe she’s to island for it but….we’d get to see her beautiful brown hair again! And her eyes are already green (with orange but…eh). I don’t know. Nina (or Leighton Meester!) would definately work! I can’t wait to see who’s picked!

  8. may says:

    What about Astrid Berges-Frisbey.

    My name is Rachel. I am 16 and turning 17 in November.
    I am literally in love with The Hunger Games, like not even joking and i would love to star in catching fire as Annie. She is such an important character to the plot and other characters, but alot of people just brush her to the side. ive heard that the producers are looking for someone unknown to hollywood for alot of their characters. well im one.
    i have been doing drama and acting in plays for three years now and i want to pursue acting in the future. i love it so much being able to show people what i can do.
    please if anyone could help me out here it would be much appreciated.
    thankyou :)

    Astrid berges-frisbey positively, she’s beautiful, unique, quite unknown for the us,absolutely a great opposite Sam claflIn as finnick as they did an amazing job as love intrest in “Pirates of The Caribbean:On Stranger Tides,” she is exactly who I imagine and picture when I read the books awhile back. Hope she gets the part if she auditioned for it! The accent Is an obstacle but the her acting will definately make up for it. Good luck Astrid!
