What we already know about the role of Viola Davis
According to director Francis Lawrence, “Dr. Á Gaul is as cruel as she is creative and as formidable as she is formidable,” he stressed. “Snow’s knowledge as a political operator largely develops from her experiences with her as the most dominant figure in the games.”
“From the beginning, Viola has been our dream for Dr. Gaul because of the intelligence and emotion she brings to each role,” said franchise producer Nina Jacobson.
