"Plus, I also think one of the big things we’re going to have to deal with in season 2, which is finding its own twists and turns, is Cosima’s illness. And that is a very pressing bit of drama that is not just straight ahead. It’s got a lot of mystery to it. It’s got a lot of twists and turns to it and it is thematically a big part of season 2 also."

In December 2004, Washington and her then fiancé, actor David Moscow, flew to Thailand for a vacation. Before making their way to their beachfront hotel, they dropped by to see some of Washington’s extended family living in Bangkok. The family persuaded the couple to spend the night. The next morning a tsunami, which affected several countries surrounding the Indian Ocean and would kill almost 300,000 people, struck the village the couple had intended to visit. Washington awoke to find their hotel had been completely destroyed. “It was just…gone,” she says. That moment changed everything.
Washington says that when she woke up the morning after the tsunami, she thought, “Okay. As scared as I might be about all the unknowns in my life, I’m alive. I should embrace the adventure rather than have it put me in a corner and shut me down”.
“So I started looking for ways to be a positive participant in my life, rather than letting my life control me,” the actress says. “Like, with my mother’s breast cancer. I thought, “Here’s an opportunity for us to move closer together, for me to support her the way she has supported me my whole life”.

#WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES
Peeta’s just pried open an oyster when I hear him give a laugh. “Hey, look at this!” He holds up a glistening, perfect pearl about the size of a pea. Peeta rinses the pearl off in the water and hands it to me. “For you.” I hold it out on my palm and examine its iridescent surface in the sunlight. Yes, I will keep it. For the few remaining hours of my life I will keep it close. This last gift from Peeta. The only one I can really accept. Perhaps it will give me strength in the final moments. “Thanks,” I say, closing my fist around it.
