I have been a long time fan of Lyndsy. I watched her on Boston Public, Young & the Restless, Big Love, Desperate Housewives, How I Met your MOther and now, of course, Nikita.
I really thought she would make a great Katniss and this talks a bit about her audition process:
It seemed like once Nikita hit the airwaves it showed people that you could really do action, and then the next thing you know you were being championed to be cast in The Hunger Games.
Yeah! That was really, really, nice of everybody. It was incredible.
How far into the audition process did you actually go?
I went to Gary [Ross’s] house and read with him — he’s just a lovely man. You know, there were just a few of us girls by that point and Gary has a studio in his house, we worked on it for a little bit. But I was just lucky to get that far, to be honest. It was cool to meet with Gary
