‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Meta Golding is Enobaria

ALTToday, another innocent young actor was plucked from the masses to compete against several of her brethren in a nationally televised fight to the death. Well, not really, but Meta Golding did win the coveted role of Enobaria for the upcoming Hunger Games sequel, Hunger Games: Catching Fire. And something tells us that many disappointed actresses would have been happy to enter the arena to join the film already populated by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jena Malone, and Amanda Plummer.

In Suzanne Collins‘ book, Enobaria is a bloodthirsty former District 2 tribute who won her Hunger Games in a particularly gruesome fashion: She ripped open her opponent’s throat with her teeth, and later had her teeth altered to look like fangs. Golding comes to the role after a long history in television — she’s guest starred on House, CSI, and Criminal Minds (to name a few), so hopefully she’s already gotten used to the sight of fake blood.

Television Editor Shaunna Murphy was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs of New Jersey. Largely shunned by her peers, she struck up friendships with the likes of Buffy Summers and the X-Men in their stead. After graduating from NYU where she studied political journalism, she moved to Los Angeles when she realized that writing about reality TV is a much nobler pursuit. She now lives in New York, again, with her two cats — Arya Stark and Joffrey Baratheon.
