Lynn Cohen is going from Magda to Mags.
The Hunger Games filmmakers announced on Thursday that Lynn Cohen, who played Miranda's no-nonsense nanny/housekeeper, Magda, in Sex and the City, will play the part of the 80-year-old Hunger Games victor from District 4 in the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Cohen is a respected theater actor who has appeared in movies ranging from Steven Spielberg's Munich to Sex and the City.
Cohen will join stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as they begin shooting the sequel this fall. The sequel will see Lawrence, victorious during her 74th Hunger Games ordeal, returning home only to be called back out on a "Victor's Tour."
