Julianne Moore will be heading to Atlanta real soon to start filming her part as President Coin in the Mockingjay movies.
Even though we’ve seen a shot of her on set, it seems her first visit there was for makeup tests to make sure she depicts a Coin that fans have imagined from reading the books. In fact in an interview with USA today, Julianne Moore explains how important it has been for the Mockingjay team to get it right.
”I think everybody tries very hard to honor the book because there’s so many people who have invested themselves in it,” she says.
She goes on to say that she was drawn to the part after reading and falling in love with the trilogy:
“My son read them when they first came out … and then my daughter a few years ago started reading The Hunger Games. We were on vacation and I didn’t bring a book to read, and she went and caught up with her brother to play ping-pong. I picked up her book and read it that afternoon, and then downloaded the other two on my iPad and tore through them. … I was really impressed by the books, so I’m delighted to be doing it.”
I gotta say, we’re pretty delighted she’s doing it too.
