Jennifer Lawrence isn’t the only eye-candy in “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.” In a newly released clip her character Katniss meets Cressida, played by Natalie Dormer, a refugee from the Capitol and an eyeful herself.

Cressida joins the rebellion with her camera crew and assistant Messalla, played by Evan Ross, all because of Katinss.

In the Capitol, Cressida is a high-ranking official who is charge of public relations, or propaganda, for President Snow. She’s considered highly fashionable by Capitol standards with her half-shaved head.

She and Katniss finally meet up in a ship. With Cressida are her cameramen Pollux, played by Elden Henson, and twin brother Castor, played by Wes Chatham.

Boggs, played by Mahershala Ali is also along for the ride. He is the personal assistant of President Alma Coin, the leader of the rebellion, played by Julianne Moore.

The meeting is significant because it brings Katniss into contact with the inner-circle of the rebellion. Cressida has become the chief of public relations for Coin and Boggs is Coin’s right-hand man.

The conversation is brief and terse as the meeting takes place. Cressida does most of the talking, introducing her crew.

“We all fled on our own,” Cressida says when Katniss asks if Plutarch got them out of the Capitol.

“For this… for you,” says the pr expert.

The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” hits theaters Nov. 21.
