According to Deadline, American Horror Story actress Lilly Rabe has been replaced in the role of Commander Lyme by none other than Brienne of Tarth, Gwendoline Christie. Rabe had to drop out because of a previous commitment to Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare in the Park. Commander Lyme is one of the tough-as-nails leaders of District 13, and will appear in the final Hunger Games movie, "Mockingjay Part 2". The role should be right up Christie's alley as she plays the tough-as-nails warrior Brienne in the HBO series, which will return for its fourth season in just two days.

Don't know much about The Hunger Games characters,
Looked it up and apparently the character should be over 6ft, so Gwen makes sense!

Lilly rabe is a very sexy woman though...

Lily is so beautiful. & a really talented actress.
I'm hoping she does a CBM soon!

She's one of the few people who can play both a believable hero and villain.

The character that the actress is playing is suited for her. I'm really looking forward to Mockingjay part 2, it's where all the intense action is going to happen.

Came across artsy nude pictures she's done while searching for a gif of her.

Such a [frick]ing hottie!
When she was cast as Brienne, i was totally against it because Brienne's suppose to be ugly as horse-shit, and Gwendoline is a an Amazon bombshell. I've been proven completely wrong since, as she's incredible in the role.

And her legs....Yowza!!!

Lily was so great in the second season of American Horror Story.

I started watching AHS a few weeks ago and Lily is awesome in it (I'm halfway through Coven right now). I've never read the HG books, but it sounds like Gwen fits the character better and she's been a revelation in GoT.

Though I've read that the character is supposed to be middle-aged, and both actresses seem too young because of that.

I've been in love with Gwen since I saw her in GoT. She'll be great!
