Katniss Everdeen may be the heroine in Mockingjay — Part 2, but there are a few other characters in the movie that shouldn't go unnoticed. In a world convoluted with war and rebellion, the fight to stay alive has always been the most prominent theme of the franchise. While Katniss may have won the games, Annie Cresta and Commander Paylor are survivors in their own right. Not only do these characters, and the actresses who portray them, represent the ever-growing need for strong female roles, but they also contain that same spark as the Girl on Fire. I got the chance to talk with the film's actresses, Stef Dawson and Patina Miller, on the red carpet of the final film's NYC screening back in November, and they were just as inspiring as the people they play.
