X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

JENNIFER LAWRENCE (Raven/Mystique) is one of Hollywood's most promising young actresses. Lawrence was nominated for the 2011 Best Actress Academy Award for her portrayal of Ree, a hardened teenager who takes care of her younger siblings and her mentally ill mother, in the absence of her drug dealer father, in Debra Granik's critically acclaimed film Winter's Bone. Lawrence was nominated for the Golden Globe Best Actress Award for her performance, as well as the Best Actress Award at the Seattle International Film Festival and The Blue Angel Award for Best Female Performance at the Bratislava Film Festival. The film was also awarded the Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize and the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

Lawrence appears in The Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster, starring Mel Gibson in a whimsical drama that centers on a grown man who wears a beaver puppet on his hand that he treats as a real person.

Lawrence was recently cast in the leading role of Kantiss in The Hunger Games, a big screen adaptation of the phenomenally successful novel. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the story is about a powerful government that holds the Hunger Games, an annual televised event where a young man and young woman fight to the death.

Lawrence recently wrapped production on Drake Doremus' Like Crazy, starring opposite Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones, and Mark Tonderai's House at the End of The Street, opposite Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot. Other film credits include a lead role in Guillermo Arriaga's directorial debut The Burning Plain, opposite Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger. The film premiered at the 65th Venice Film Festival, where Lawrence won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actress or Actor. She also starred in Lori Petty's Poker House, opposite Selma Blair and Bokeem Woodbine, for which Lawrence was awarded Outstanding Performance in the Narrative Competition at the 2008 Los Angeles Film Festival. Additional film credits include Jason Freeland's Garden Party, opposite Vinessa Shaw, as well as roles in Drillbit Taylor and Waverly Hills.

On television, Lawrence co-starred on three seasons of the TBS series The Bill Engvall Show.

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, where she had extensive theatre experience, Lawrence traveled to New York at age fourteen to explore a professional career in acting. She quickly caught the eye of casting directors and started acting in film and television during the summer of 2005 and hasn't looked back.
