With her experience playing emotionally vulnerable yet resilient characters, Paula Malcomson made a name for herself on several critically acclaimed television series before finally landing a key supporting role in the much-buzzed about blockbuster, "The Hunger Games" (2012). After years of guest starring on shows like "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05) and "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005) and bit parts in features like "The Green Mile" (1999) and "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence" (2001), Malcomson had her first breakout role as the reformed prostitute Trixie on David Milch's acclaimed revisionist Western, "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06). She had more prominent guest starring roles on "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010), "Criminal Minds" (CBS, 2005- ) and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000- ), and secured recurring parts on "John From Cincinnati" (HBO, 2007) and "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). Malcomson joined the cast of "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008- ) for the biker series' third season as a secret-keeping old lady from the gang's Belfast chapter, and delivered an emotionally nuanced performance on the sci-fi series "Caprica" (Syfy, 2009-2010), as a mother attempting to reconnect with her daughter who died in a bombing attack. She finally landed a major feature role as the mother of Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games," proving that she was more than capable of taking on more high-profile roles.
