Lionsgate revealed today that “Chicago Fire” actress Michelle Forbes will play the role of Lt. Jackson in the Mockingjay movies, which are scheduled to wrap filming later this month. Lt. Jackson is a soldier from District 13, who ventures into the Capitol with Katniss towards the end of the last book.
Besides her recurring role on “Chicago Fire,” Forbes has also appeared in “True Blood,” “The Killing,” “Prison Break,” “Battlestar Galactica,” and will appear in the current new season of the BBC America hit drama, “Orphan Black.”
The two Mockingjay movies have been filming simultaneously since September. The first movie is set for release in November, with the second movie following a year later.
Fans are anxiously awaiting a first look at the new Mockingjay movie, but so-far there has been no confirmation of when a trailer will finally appear. (Recent rumors that it would debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year have not been confirmed.)
