Philip Seymour Hoffman only had seven days of filming left on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 before his passing, Deadline reports. The actor graced the screen with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in Catching Fire last Fall and had recently filmed scenes for the follow-up films. His character, Plutarch Heavensbee, plays a pivotal role in the franchise's last two installments, and there is no word on what the studio will do to make up for the scenes Hoffman hadn't yet filmed. Still, according to reports, the release dates — Nov. 21, 2014, and Nov. 20, 2015 — will not change.

Some of Hoffman's final work in front of the camera will be featured in the Mockingjay movies, making his scenes even more significant for his fans and loved ones. Lionsgate, the studio responsible for the hit franchise, acknowledged his impact on the films in a statement released on Sunday:

Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We're very fortunate that he graced our Hunger Games family. Losing him in his prime is a tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Philip’s family.

Meanwhile, Hoffman's fellow Hunger Games thespians are reacting to their loss on Twitter. Keep reading to find out what they are saying about him.
