Stef is not widely known outside Australia, but this latest stint will definitely make her a household name in the coming days, especially to the The Hunger Games fans. Excited for her role, Stef also took to Twitter to thank the Hunger Games family for welcoming her.
So excited to be a part of @thehungergames family!! & work with Jennifer Lawrence, @jhutch1992, @samclaflin, Francis & the team!#Mockingjay — Stef Dawson (@stefdawson) August 26, 2013
Stef's character, Annie Cresta, is a victor from District 4 who is in a relationship with fellow District 4 victor Finnick Odair, played by actor Sam Claflin.
Annie was first mentioned in Catching Fire who had reaped for the second time to compete in the Third Quarter Quell. However, Mags, a much older tribute, who act as mentor to Annie during her Hunger Games volunteered to have Annie's place.
Annie's character became known in Mockingjay when she was finally reunited with her love, Odair.
Another announced cast for the The Hunger Games Mocking Jay 1 & 2 was Ashlee Simpson's beau and Diana Ross's son, Evan Ross, who was set to play the role of Messalla.

Ashlee and Evan's relationship was only confirmed some months ago, but the two seemed serious about each other. They had been seen out and about with Ashlee's son, Bronx, whom Evan had obviously established a bond already. Ashlee had also introduced Evan to her mother in Toluca lake, California during one weekend getaway.
Evan was Charlie Selby for nine episodes of 90210. He also played the part of Kevin in Jeff Who Lives at Home. Kevin was the kid whom Jason Segel made friends with under the strong belief that Kevin was a sign from the universe.
These recent announcements came after The Hunger Games authorities named actress Natalie Dormer as Cressida. Cressida is the resident director from the Capitol who joins the District's revolt.
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, will open worldwide on Nov 22 while The Hunger Game Mocking Jay part 1 was targeted to have its theater debut on Nov 21, 2014.
The trilogy comes to an end when The Hunger Games Mocking Jay 2 is released in theaters on Nov 20, 2015.
