Natalie Dormer is ecstatic about being a part of the Hunger Games family!

The 31-year-old actress, who plays Cressida in the upcoming two Mockingjay films, is gushing about the highly anticipated flicks and her awesome costar Jennifer Lawrence.

"It's the best family to be a part of," Dormer recently told us. "I'm so happy to be a part of the Hunger Games family, really."

As for her character in the film, Dormer explained, "Cressida, she's a documentary filmmaker turned rebel. She's left the Capitol to join the rebellion against Snow. She's got that Capitol funk style going on, but now she's like practical, rebel and believes in the cause."

And Dormer definitely gets to get in on the action scenes alongside Lawrence's Katniss. "Well, anyone who knows the book knows that Cressida follows Katniss into the field," she dished. "I'm pretty much Katniss' guide for the majority."

As for working with J.Law, Dormer says "yes" she's as cool as you'd think. "She's a total chick," she said. "She's gorgeous."

Dormer also had to shave half of her head for the Mockingjay role. "The hair department of Mockingjay did it and I love it," she told us. "A little trepidation, but I was excited."
