'The Hunger Games' picks its Octavia and Portia, as fans hold breath for Cinna

Latarsha Rose Brooke Bundy

Lionsgate announced that Latarsha Rose and Brooke Bundy have joined the Gary Ross adaptation of YA dystopian thriller The Hunger Games. Rose, whose resumé includes guest turns on All My Children and Bones, will play Peeta’s stylist Portia. Relative newcomer Bundy will play Octavia, a member of Katniss Everdeen’s beloved stylist Cinna’s prep team. As Capitol-dwellers, they’re expected to have garish, heavily stylized appearances – from their clothes to their skin dye. Meanwhile, Hunger Games fans pine for news of their Cinna.

Filming on The Hunger Games, which stars among many others Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson, and Elizabeth Banks, began last week in North Carolina. EW recently revealed an exclusive first look at Lawrence in costume as trilogy heroine Katniss.
