Maria HowellThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire is building up a strong community of Hunger Games victors to unite for the forthcoming 74th annual competition. So far, the likes of Plutarch Heavensbee, Johanna Mason, and Wiress have found embodiments, among many others. Entertainment Weekly reports that the latest of Suzanne Collins’ characters to get an actor: Seeder, District 11’s reigning champ, will be played by Maria Howell.

To date, Howell has had a large variety of television roles, appearing on such series as The Vampire Diaries, Army Wives, and Necessary Roughness; her film resume includes The Blind Side and What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Howell will be featured on the upcoming NBC program Revolution.

The character of Seeder is not well-liked by many of the Hunger Games competitors. The good-hearted Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), however, sees the good in her after Howell offers some helpful strategic information.
