Natalie Dormer Talks Her Transformation into Cressida + Her Thoughts on #Mockingjay Part 1 (she’s seen it!)

SS_D5-2003.dng

Natalie Dormer recently spoke with E! Online about playing Cressida in Mockingjay and the hair and makeup processes she went through every day.  In the books, Cressida is described as being bald, but in the films she has a half-shaved head.  And Natalie had to have a clean shave every single morning.

“They shaved my head every day, a clean shave,” Dormer continued. “It was cold. I don’t know if you guys remember the winter, but it was cold! Those polar vortexes! I was wearing my beanie a lot.”

Natalie also commented on the vine tattoo that Cressida has, which we now know extends all the way down her arm.

It was so cool, she wanted to keep it on after work hours. “I swore to everyone that I would because we finished filming in Berlin and I was like, ‘I’m going to rock it in Berlin,'” Dormer said. “But I never got out. I never did. I missed an opportunity there…totally missed an opportunity, silly girl.”

And it also turns out that Natalie is one of the lucky cast members to have already seen Mockingjay: Part 1!

“Are you ready for November 21?” she said with a big smile. “Man, I’m telling you. I’m so happy and proud to be a part of this incredible franchise.”

NEW Mandatory Viewing from CapitolTV: ‘Road Closures’ Surrounding President Snow’s Mansion

CapitolTV  has released a new mandatory viewing alert for the citizens of Panem titled “Road Closures”.  There’s not much “viewing”, it’s mostly a voiceover making an announcement.

Here is what the announcer says:

Starting today, all streets within a six-mile radius of the President’s mansion will be closed for routine maintenance.   All traffic will be rerouted, and no pedestrians will have access to the moving walkways. Anyone caught in the area during the closure will be detained for questioning. You will be notified when the area reopens. Thank you.

“Routine” maintenance, hmm?  Somehow we doubt that!

Here are the log in instructions to get to the hack:

UPDATE:  Turns out you can also find some intel on Pollux on the District 13 desktop site as well!  Good eyes, Panem Propaganda!

Pollux Hack4

Any thoughts on the label for Gale as “savior”?  And how about the hacks in general — Are they still interesting, or do you find them a bit repetitive by now?  Leave us a comment and share your thoughts!
