NEWS: Natalie Dormer (Cressida) talks about the relevance and message of 'The Hunger Games'

In an interview with New York Post, Natalie Dormer (who's playing Cressida in Mockingjay) discusses the significance of the message of The Hunger Games to today's world. 
Perhaps the biggest deal, though, is the role she’s scheduled to start shooting next: “Mockingjay,” the two-part final installment of the “Hunger Games” series. She’ll play Cressida, a film director who leaves the comfort of the Capitol to document Katniss Everdeen and the uprising she’s inspired. 
“It’s incredible how poignant an allegory it is for what’s going on in the real world,” says Dormer of the series. “You only need to turn on the television and watch the terrible things about Syria, about a government turning on their own people. 
“That’s the strength of fantasy,” she says, “whether it’s ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Hunger Games,’ where you can make a really strong statement about society without getting caught up in the constrictions of current politics.”
