Natalie Dormer Shaves Her Head for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay


It was announced back in August that Natalie Dormer had been cast as Cressida in the final two chapters of the Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Mockinjay – Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Although the character is, in the original novel, described as being bald, Dormer debuted her Panem look this weekend at the SAG Awards red carpet, telling EW that she’s been keeping the look a secret for months. Take a look in the gallery viewer below!

?It?s been hidden for three months,” she says. “It happened back in October. I was, you know, waiting for the right moment… Francis Lawrence, the director of ‘Mockingjay,’ and I discussed it and I took the job on the premise that I would possibly shave my whole head. I?m actually really pleased that we went halfway because I think it?s more the Capitol? and that?s where Cressida comes from. She comes from the Capitol, so she?s got a stylized thing going on and now she?s turned rebel. I think it?s right for the character.?

The Cressida character is that of a film director working in the Capitol, who winds up joining the rebellion with her assistant, Messalla, and her cameramen, Castor and Pollux.
