"Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer, who appeared in the latter half of the "Hunger Games" film franchise as rebel Cressida, is a huge fan of author Suzanne Collins, the brilliant mind behind the young adult book series where the blockbuster movies were based.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress was asked about the possibility of prequels. While franchise lead star Jennifer Lawrence finds it best for everyone to take some time away from Panem, Dormer expressed interest, so long as Collins remains involved.

"I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination, and everything that is the success of 'The Hunger Games,' the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne," Dormer said, praising the writer for having concocted an entirely different and complex world that manages to capture the present times.

Dormer reiterated that she is a "huge fan" of Collins before revealing that "Hunger Games" producer Nina Jacobson and director Francis Lawrence already discussed that they may end up adapting any story within Katniss Everdeen's universe; should Collins eventually put something out, may it be a prequel or sequel.

"So the minute I know that Suzanne is writing something, then yes, my ears would prick up. Almost definitely," Dormer went on to say. Notably, the actress does not share the same opinion with Lawrence.

When the actress was queried by Variety about continuing the tale of the brave and bold Katniss Everdeen in "Hunger Games" prequels, Lawrence answered: "I wouldn't be involved. I think it's too soon. They've got to let the body get cold, in my opinion."

While "Hunger Games" prequels are still not official, not to mention Lawrence's involvement or the direction of the franchise will take, Francis Lawrence, who directed "Catching Fire" and the "Mockingjay" films, already has a clear vision of how the fans can check back in on Panem.

"The interesting part of the story for me is to go back 75 years earlier and see how everything became the way it is," the filmmaker told Entertainment Weekly last month, when the franchise was formally wrapped up with the blockbuster hit "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2."

"I'm sure if Suzanne were to get inspired and decide there's another story that's important for her to tell that exists within the world of Panem and whether about the Dark Days, another character, or another set of Games, whatever that could be, I'm sure it would be great. And I'd love to be involved, absolutely," he added.
