While like most everyone who reads YA, I am no less excited about the release of Mockingjay this week. I absolutely loved Hunger Games and Catching Fire and am hoping that Mockingjay will be as awesome as the other two books were.
So I finally decided to decided to participate in Smitten With Books mini challenge and cast the role of Katniss, just one of many differnt challenges taking place throughout the blogosphere.
My pick for the role of Katniss is Alexis Dziena. First I think she has a face that is in many ways devoid of emotion, which I think Katniss would have, yet her eyes have an intensity that would appeal to the sponsors. Her overall appearence reeks of self-reliance and toughness, but also hints of committement and compassion for the people she is trying to protect.
She also looks like she has the ability and strength to survive, wield weapons (especially a bow) and kill when necessary.
And Alexis looks great even when she is all wet and dirty, and if she is going to be Katniss, this is definitely a strong consideration when choosing the right girl for the role.
So what do you think? Could Alexis Dziena pull off Katniss?
