Meet the human forms of shape-shifting demon Magda.

When EW spoke with Natalie Dormer last year to get the goods on her new role… well, roles in Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, the Game of Thrones vet promised Magda, her shape-shifting demon persona, will take three different guises that she’ll use to manipulate humankind in 1938 Los Angeles. “The audience will discover who those identities are as they continue to watch the show,” she said at the time.

In a brand-new sneak peek, which EW can exclusively debut, we see these different forms and learn more about how she’ll use them over the course of season 1.

First things first, this is not Penny Dreadful season 4. City of Angels is more a “spiritual descendant,” as creator John Logan once put it, to the original series, which placed actress Eva Green in a gothic London setting.

“The continuity from the first iteration of Penny Dreadful to this one is the supernatural element in which monsters are present but the main monsters are within the characters,” explains Rory Kinnear, who played Frankenstein’s monster in the original and now returns as a German Nazi living in America as a physician.

Magda is what makes City of Angels a Penny Dreadful story.

As the sister of Santa Muerte (Lorenza Izzo), who is the Holy Angel of Death and ferry woman of souls to the afterlife, she is an agent of chaos who believes humankind is inherently evil — and she’ll use her changeling powers to prove that point. The video, shown above, sees Magda taking on various forms as she speaks of a “time when nation will battle nation, when race will devour race, when brother will kill brother.”

At the center of it all is Tiago Vega, played by Here & Now‘s Daniel Zovatto. The first chicano police detective on the L.A.P.D. force, Tiago works to solve a case seemingly linked to Día de Muertos, the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, while the planned construction of L.A.’s Arroyo Seco Parkway threatens to displace his family and neighborhood. Zovatto calls it “a roller coaster of emotions” as Tiago grapples with racism, Nazism, police brutality, and demagoguery.

“It’s intense,” he says. “I mean, it is dreadful.”

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels — also starring Nathan Lane as a Jewish detective and a mentor figure for Tiago — premieres this April 26 on Showtime.

The actress has had many memorable roles, but her next projects are set to make the biggest impact yet. And that’s by design

It’s the eve of Natalie Dormer’s 38th birthday, and the thesp is cozied up on a beige suede sectional inside a private home full of retro flair that’s tucked away in Granada Hills, an hour outside of Los Angeles. The star of the upcoming television series Penny Dreadful: City of Angels had spent the better part of the day there shooting our cover.

“I’m an Aquarian. What are you?” she asks in her charming British lilt.

“Scorpio,” I reply.

“Ah, Scorpio,” she says with a smile as she leans against a furry cream-colored pillow with a bottle of Trader Joe’s spring water in her hand. There is a disarming warmth about her—a calming quality—and an innate, introspective wiseness of someone who has learned through what she’s lived through. When Dormer speaks, she looks right at you, and when she’s discussing her passions, her blue eyes sparkle with intensity as she rakes her platinum-blond locks off her face.

Her motivational mantras, which she shares throughout our chat, make me want to snap my fingers as if I were in the midst of a poetry slam.

“This is very Buddhist of me,” she says with a laugh as she talks about the many lessons she’s learned in Hollywood and why she launched her own production company, Dog Rose Productions, in December. “It’s that old saying that if you wait to feel ready, you’ll be waiting forever,” adding that that was also one of the biggest messages instilled in her while working alongside costars like Jennifer Lawrence, Elizabeth Banks, and Julianne Moore.

“I think women, we sometimes feel like we have to be 100 percent sure that we can achieve something before we dip our toes in the water,” she says. “It’s like it’s socially innate in us. It’s not that we’re not risk-takers, because I think women are courageous, and they’re brave, and they are risk-takers. But sometimes we’re naturally too modest. I think what I’m increasingly learning, especially about the industry, is you’re going to learn on the job. That’s how you get your Malcolm Gladwell 10,000 hours, is doing it, and it’s the trial and the error. And that is how you learn. And that is how you grow and jump in, sister. What’s the worst that can happen?”

Murder, Los Angeles, Satan, the Third Reich, anti-Mexican bigotry, an Aimee Semple McPherson-style evangelist and Nathan Lane with a Tommy gun – the new trailer for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful: City of Angels packs quite the wallop.

Billed as a “spiritual descendant of the original Penny Dreadful story,” the new series, kicking off next month and mixing historical reality with the supernatural, opens in 1938 Los Angeles with a grisly murder shocking the city (we see the mutilated, Joker-looking corpse in the trailer). Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) investigate the crime, getting drawn into a tale that encompasses the building of L.A.’s first freeways, the city’s traditions of Mexican-American folklore, Nazi espionage, and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Vega and his family “are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.”

In addition to Zovatto (Here and Now) and Lane, the new Penny Dreadful stars Natalie Dormer, Kerry Bishé, Rory Kinnear, Adriana Barraza, Michael Gladis, Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves. Tony winner (for Red) and three-time Oscar nominee John Logan, the creator, writer and executive producer of the original Penny Dreadful, continues in those same roles. Michael Aguilar serves as executive producer, along with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris, both of Neal Street Productions. Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions produces, and James Bagley serves as co-executive producer.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels premieres Sunday, April 26 at 10/9c on Showtime.

Meet Natalie Dormer’s shape-shifting demon Magda.

Penny for your thoughts? How about a Penny Dreadful.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels‘ first trailer has officially descended upon us, bringing with it a battle for humanity’s very soul. On one side is Game of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer as shape-shifting demon Magda, who believes humans will always succumb to their more monstrous temptations. On the other is Magda’s sister Santa Muerte, the Holy Angel of Death played by Knock Knock‘s Lorenza Izzo, who believes in their inherent goodness. Who will be proven right?

“All mankind needs to become the monster he truly is, is being told he can,” Magda says in the footage. “And when this world is burned, there will be no one… no one but you and me, sister.”

Penny Dreadful creator John Logan sees City of Angels as a spiritual descendant to the first series, which starred Eva Green and concluded in 2016. The main story at play here follows Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto), the LAPD’s first Chicano detective in the 1930s, during the construction of the Arroyo Seco Parkway that displaces Tiago’s family.

“I wanted to tell a story about a Latino family under pressure because of all the forces at play — not only in freeway building but also in crime, law enforcement, and immigration policy,” Logan previously told EW. Being that this is a Penny Dreadful, there’s also a murder connected to Día de Muertos that kickstarts this saga.

Glimpsed in the trailer are three of Magda’s human forms, which we’ll meet in season 1 of City of Angels. It’s through these guises that she stirs the pot of human affairs.

The series will premiere Sunday, April 26 at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.

Hello loyal visitors,

I just wanted to take a moment and explain what is going on with the media archive. Some may have noticed it looked strange when visiting. This is because when we moved hosts I forgot to move the theme and as a result I lost all the styling. So I am at present working on re-creating the theme and as such the media archive won’t work as well if you try to view any videos.

I am sorry for any inconvenience caused and I will update you all once it is functional again. In the meantime, more photo and news updates are to come, so watch this space.

We have returned to our original domain Natalie-Dormer.com.  For those who have been following the site since it opened on May 4, 2011, you will remember this was Captivating’s original home. When I closed the site after leaving fansites behind for a period I sold the domain. While I don’t regret my reprieve from fansites because it helped me tame my fansite addiction, I did regret selling the domain. This is partially why we moved from nataliedormer.org to natalie-dormer.net, no home has ever felt quite right. So we have no come full circle and I couldn’t be any more excited.

Please note that Captivating can still be reached from both nataliedormer.org and natalie-dormer.net as both domains redirect to the .com.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, which will feature all new characters and storylines, opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) is embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.

Helena Bonham Carter and Keegan-Michael Key have joined as well.

Last year, Netflix and The Jim Henson Company announced that a series based on Jim Henson’s 1982 film The Dark Crystal was in the works, and now Netflix has revealed the series’ impressive voice cast. Called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the show takes place many years before the movie’s events, and it centers on three Gelfling who discover a secret about the evil Skeksis’ power. They then set out on a battle to save Thra.

The three Gelfling will be voiced by Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones). Other Gelfling characters will be voiced by Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), Theo James (Divergent) and Helena Bonham Carter. Among the cast voicing the Skeksis and Mystics are Andy Samberg (SNL, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Jason Isaacs, Mark Hamill, Keegan-Michael Key and Simon Pegg, among others.

“To match the stunning visual world of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, we knew we had to entice some incredible voice talent to add dimension to the exquisite artistry of the puppeteers who bring the characters to life,” Netflix VP of original series Cindy Holland said in a statement. “I am proud to say that this may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world’s favorite TV shows and movies, and I am now even more excited for fans to come back to Thra with us, and for new viewers to discover this world for the very first time.”

The series will use classic puppetry and “cutting edge visual effects” to reimagine Henson’s world and it’s set to debut next year. You can see the rest of the announced cast below.

Gelfling:

  • Caitriona Balfe (Outlander)
  • Harris Dickinson (forthcoming Maleficent 2)
  • Eddie Izzard (Ocean’s Thirteen)
  • Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy)
  • Shazad Latif (Star Trek: Discovery)
  • Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Cloverfield Paradox)
  • Mark Strong (Kingsman)
  • Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider)

Skeksis and Mystics:

  • Harvey Fierstein (Torch Song)
  • Ralph Ineson (Game of Thrones)
  • Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (True Detective)

Aughra will be voiced by Donna Kimball (The Happytime Murders).

“I’ve turned down roles involving sex because I’m terrified of perpetuating that clickbait image.”

Natalie Dormer is not on Twitter, Instagram or any kind of social media – and that’s becoming a bit of a problem.

“I have been misquoted and taken out of context quite regularly on the subject of sex on screen. I don’t have any immediate redress to counter it,” the actress tells me, sitting at the other end of the sofa, but leaning towards me and watching how her words land. “How absurd to go, ‘Should I just tweet to say that journalist took my words completely out of context?’ It creates another story.”

It’s clear the events of 2015 have left Dormer very wary of how her words will be interpreted – or misinterpreted – online. The episode concerned Dormer’s comments about her Game of Thrones character, Queen Margaery Tyrell, seducing a 12-year-old boy. The character, King Tommen, was played by actor Dean-Charles Chapman, who was actually 16 at the time of filming; but the scene was the subject of immense interest, and came up in every interview she gave at the time.

Dormer’s comments on the scene were later twisted online to imply that she condoned having sex with underage children. She released a statement to website GossipCop.com (the original can no longer be found through googling), explaining that she considered Tommen to be “a naive 17-year-old” and “wouldn’t have played the scene if I believed different”. She also made it clear that she does not “condone, in any shape or form, sex with a minor. That is child abuse. A serious criminal act.”

Natalie Dormer has said that before that she knows how Game of Thrones ends, but appreciates she’ll be “sued” if she shares her intel. What she will say is what she hopes will happen were she given script-writing duties.

“I would like humanity to be saved please,” she laughs. “It’s really just that in a nutshell – that humanity was saved against the White Walkers. I’m hoping for a continuation of humanity in Westeros if possible.”

The British actress, who played queen Margaery Tyrell in the popular show, assumes another regal role in her latest project, featuring as a queen in a new satirical Nespresso advert with George Clooney. She admits that, along with her love of coffee, working with Clooney was a big draw. The two traded notes on Berkshire, where she grew up and where the actor now lives with wife Amal and his twins.

“He is as delightful, witty and intelligent as he appears to be in his interviews,” she says. “It’s lovely to meet someone who matches the positive public profile that they have. He’s a generous human being and has time for everyone. His work catalogue speaks for itself and then there’s his humanitarian work. He’s very grounded, which is refreshing to find of someone of his fame or profile. It was a delight to spend a few days with him.”

Clooney and coffee aside, Dormer is currently working on a television series about Vivien Leigh, the wildly talented Gone With The Wind actress who spent her life battling with bipolar disorder. Dormer, who has spent the past few years producing and developing the show, was recently announced as the lead. The project is still in script development stages as it searches for a distributor.

After starring as Game Of Thrones’ fiery Margaery Tyrell and rebel Cressida in the Hunger Games franchise, it’s safe to say actress Natalie Dormer has proven to be quite the on-screen chameleon. So it’s hardly a surprise that her new role in BBC2’s adaptation of Picnic At Hanging Rock – based on Australian writer Joan Lindsay’s 1967 mystery novel of the same name – was offered to her outright.

“The reason I took the role is that [the show’s director] Larysa Kondracki wrote to me and said, ‘I need an actress who can be terrifying but also bring vulnerability. I think you can do that,’” Natalie, 36, explains.

Natalie stars as Hester Appleyard – a draconian headteacher who has fled her enigmatic past to start afresh in Australia. But when a group of girls from her boarding school go missing under mysterious circumstances during a picnic at Hanging Rock, everyone else’s lives begin to unravel – and her past catches up with her.

Natalie explains: “She’s run away from a past life and constructed herself as something else. But when a massive tragedy, like the girls’ disappearance happens, you realise how flimsy that is.

It’s like Joan Lindsay herself said about the novel; it’s like dropping a stone into a pond and watching the rippling effect, as everyone becomes destabilised.

“Hester certainly becomes destabilised – and that’s fun to play, someone losing their mind. That’s Hamlet, that’s Blanche DuBois – that’s a gift as an actor.”

After being frustrated with the limited roles she was being offered, the actress co-wrote her new film with her partner Anthony Byrne.

In an Earl’s Court apartment block hallway, Natalie Dormer gestures for me to sit down. “Get yourself over to the stairs,” she smiles, “the red Hitchcockian stairs.”

The film she is shooting is In Darkness, a contemporary thriller – as if her nod to Hitchcock hadn’t already given that away – about a pianist named Sofia. Played by Dormer, the visually impaired Sofia gets entangled in a murder case when her upstairs neighbour is killed.

Today’s scene sees Dormer fumbling her way into the building’s lift, white cane in hand, with the creepy Marc (played by Ed Skrein) – who may or may not be the killer – in pursuit.

Dormer, the fiercely intelligent and striking-looking 36-year-old, who rose to fame on The Tudors and Game of Thrones, has spent days with people at the Royal National Institute for the Blind, getting “a crash course in visual impairment” to help perfect her character.

Intriguingly, Dormer is also the co-writer of In Darkness, scripting it with the director – and her off-screen partner – Anthony Byrne.

“There was a drought of intelligent thrillers when we started writing this seven years ago,” she says, when we retire upstairs to chat, sitting at the dining room table on the set of Sofia’s apartment.

“You’re a woman. You’re a sensual creature are you not?” demands Natalie Dormer, fierce blue eyes narrowing. You could imagine Dormer delivering the line as shrewd seductress Margaery Tyrell in Game Of Thrones, or The Tudors’ Anne Boleyn, but here, she’s saying it to an interviewer in an EastEnders-themed room of BBC Broadcasting House. (There’s a replica of the Queen Vic pub sign hanging above the door.)

Dormer has just been asked about the surprising erotic voyeurism in Picnic At Hanging Rock, a six-part adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel about the disappearance of a group of Australian schoolgirls at the turn of the nineteeth century. Adapted by playwright Beatrix Christian and showrun by director Larysa Kondracki, it’s a story largely about women, largely told by women. Why should that fact make the eroticism surprising? Dormer fires back “Why can’t a female story be erotic and sensual?”

“God, it’s overdue to see that sort of storytelling, isn’t it? To see sex and sexuality through a female gaze—female producers, directors, writers—as opposed to coming from a male gaze. For me, for that reason alone, it’s refreshing.”

“We all,” Dormer looks around the room at her half a dozen interviewers, all women save for one man, “all but one” she corrects with a laugh, “—you gentlemen have your own version of it—can remember what it is to be an adolescent girl grappling with puberty and the intensity of the bodily changes and the emotional changes… if you put young pubescent girls, with their hormones going everywhere, in a contained space, that is the reality of the situation.”

Dormer is keen not to put too much significance on Picnic At Hanging Rock being led by writers and directors who are women. On the press circuit for the show here in the UK, in the US and Australia, the focus on its gender provenance has obviously become something of an irritant.

With a cast that also includes Joely Richardson and Emily Ratajkowski, Dormer is keen for the film to paint the nation’s capital in authentic brush strokes. “I get frustrated about not seeing the real London on camera. You either see candy box London, if it’s a [Richard] Curtis movie, or you see rough estate gangster [films]… you don’t see central cosmopolitan middle-class London, which is textured.”

For Dormer, creating her own script is a first – well, since her days at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. “Like most drama students I wrote a play while I was at drama school and thought I could write,” she says.

LONDON (Reuters) – “Game of Thrones” actress Natalie Dormer gets in front as well as behind the camera for thriller “In Darkness”, a movie she began writing nearly 10 years ago frustrated by the lack of “three dimensional” roles for women.

The 36-year-old, also known for television series “The Tudors” and “The Hunger Games” films, stars as blind pianist Sofia, who hears her upstairs neighbour being murdered, leading her into a dark world of war criminals.

Dormer started the script in 2009 but says things have changed on screen since then with female-lead films in movies such as “Black Swan” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.”It was pre this revolution we’ve had in wanting fully fleshed out three-dimensional flawed women as our protagonists. I think we can, storytelling wise, see that wave – slower than we would have wanted but it’s happening,” she said in an interview.

“Behind the camera is a much more pertinent question … If it took me seven years to get my independent movie shot it’s … the female writers, directors cinematographers who are trying to get their stuff made. Now that we won’t see for years.”

Women made up 18 percent of writers, directors, producers, editors and cinematographers who worked on the 250 biggest grossing movies in the United States last year, little changed from 1998, according to the Centre for the Study of Women in Television and Film.

Dormer shares the film’s writing credits with her fiance Anthony Byrne, who directs. Both are producers.

“I’m concerned and invested in everybody doing their job in that room which is a completely different thing to being an actor.

“To be perfectly honest I love the team sport element of it and I got a real kick out of it.”

“Good storytelling is genderless,” says the Picnic at Hanging Rock actress.

Natalie Dormer has insisted that male viewers shouldn’t feel excluded by female-fronted TV and film projects, like her new series Picnic at Hanging Rock.

BBC Two’s adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s novel features a female-led cast and had a female writer, with four out of the six episodes also directed by women.

“It has a different tone via osmosis, by being female-led,” Dormer told press, including Digital Spy, of the story of three adolescent girls and their governess, who mysteriously go missing in the Australian bush in 1900.

“God, it’s overdue to see that sort of storytelling, isn’t it? And to see sex and sexuality through a female gaze – female producers, writers, directors – as opposed to it coming through a male gaze. So for me, for that reason alone, it’s refreshing.

“But it’s still just, at its core, great storytelling, and should interest either gender or any of the sexualities or whatever your preferences in life are.

“I think we’re in an evolution at the moment where hopefully, in ten years’ time, this will all be so much more irrelevant, because it will naturally be happening – the parity or the quality of what stories we see in gender, in front of and behind the camera.

“Sexuality, ethnicity – hopefully we won’t need to talk about it so much in the future.”

Dormer – who plays Hester Appleyard, the enigmatic Headmistress of Appleyard College, in Picnic at Hanging Rock – insisted that “good storytelling is genderless”.

“It’s [just] good storytelling. It’s about humanity,” she said. “So, whatever you are.

“I wouldn’t want to say anything that ostracises a male audience. Because, if I can sit down and watch a hardcore Vietnam War film and enjoy it, then I expect my brother or best male friends to be able to sit down and enjoy Picnic.”

Picnic at Hanging Rock was originally published in 1967, with its surprising climax (no spoilers here!) sparking much discussion and analysis. The story, according to Dormer, “refuses, almost, to be contained as one genre”.

“Larysa [Kondracki, directors of episodes 1-3] calls it an enchanted chiller,” she said. “It has elements of psychological thriller, verging maybe on horror in some places. There’s really strong comedy in places.

“There’s romance in there. There’s adventure. There is a mystery that fundamentally is the anchor of the story. And that is what I appreciate of it, and hopefully different demographics will respond to that. It has this ability to morph as you watch it, which again, I think is just a testament to very strong writing.”

The 36-year-old actor said though writing the psychological thriller “In Darkness” with Byrne was a challenging experience, she has “huge respect” for him as a director and a partner.

LONDON: “Game of Thornes” star Natalie Dormer has said she will not be teaming up with her fiance Anthony Byrne for writing another film.

The 36-year-old actor said though writing the psychological thriller “In Darkness” with Byrne was a challenging experience, she has “huge respect” for him as a director and a partner.

“Couples say terrible things to each other that you would never say to your best friend. We learned very quickly that we couldn’t write in the same room. Doors got slammed at various points and I wouldn’t necessarily rush into writing with Anthony again, but I have huge respect for him,” Dormer said.

The actor plays blind pianist Sofia in the film, which also features Emily Ratajkowski and Ed Skrein.

According to Femalefirst, Dormer said that as part of her training for the role she also spent time at Royal National Institute of Blind People.

“You’re never going to fully appreciate what it’s like because you have the safety net there – your eyes – but I have to do a massive shout out to the RNIB because they gave me my cane lessons and showed me how to walk up and down the street and navigate around my own house. You realise you know a lot just by memory and sound,” Dormer said.

Amazon Prime’s latest limited series is a new twist on a classic—a genuine reimagining. Widely considered to be one of the best Australian novels of all time, Joan Lindsay‘s 1967 Picnic at Hanging Rock is the story of three young women and a teacher from upper-class Appleyard College who mysteriously vanish from a picnic at the titular landmark on Valentine’s Day 1900.

The novel has been adapted multiple times for the stage, and notably for the screen by director Peter Weir in 1975. Weir’s film is critically revered, and its influence has touched creations as varied as the films of Sofia Coppola to Damon Lindelof‘s acclaimed series The Leftovers to the work of fashion designers.

From showrunner Larysa Kondracki and writers Beatrix Christian and Alice Addison, Amazon’s six-hour miniseries has much of what made the Weir film so powerful—nightmarish, quietly horrifying qualities and haunting mystery—but thanks in part to its expansive length and scope, there’s much more on the table this time ’round: this Picnic has provocative, sexy romance, black humor, and an edgy, universal tale of identity and coming into one’s own. It’s suddenly quite timely too—a unique meditation on femininity and girlhood released mere months after the dawn of #MeToo.

The series stars Game of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer as unremittingly strict headmistress Hester Appleyard. Lily Sullivan (Mental) co-stars as Miranda Reid, and Lola Bessis (Thirst Street) plays young governess Madameoiselle Dianne de Poitiers.

Parade spoke with Dormer and other members of the cast and crew about this new take on a classic, its relevance amidst the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, and equality in the entertainment industry and beyond.

Because the 1975 film is so esteemed, did you feel pressure to live up to it?

Bessis: I love the ’75 film so much, and I said that the first time I talked with Larysa on Skype, but she said, “Don’t worry, this is going to be really different.”

Kondracki: Absolutely, but these scripts are so different. It’s much more about who these girls were. Ours is a little darker, too. The scripts are very truthful to the book.

Dormer: We have six hours to delve into the novel in ways Weird couldn’t in two hours.

Natalie Dormer knows you want to ask her about Game Of Thrones. Sure, she’s working on other projects, and she’s played a part in many a franchise (The Tudors and The Hunger Games among them), but the Game Of Thronesobsessives always want more (and rightfully so). She can feel the vibration of my question forming, and, even though her character, Margaery Tyrell, has already been killed off the much-loved drama, Dormer is always ready to offer her own opinions as to where the princes, queens, and dragon-slayers on the show will end up.

When we sit down together at Bustle HQ, Dormer admits she’s worried about Sansa (“I love her journey as a character”), she wants Cersei to have a “massive revelation of self,” and she tacks on the exceptionally juicy tidbit that she knows how it all ends. “They’ve been shooting a lot of battle sequences… it’s the fight to the finish,” she says, letting the statement lie, with an unmistakeable emphasis on the word “finish.” Though Dormer loved her time on Game Of Thrones and is happy to have been a part of the series, she’s beyond ready to move on.

No longer satisfied with the stories men have projected onto women in the industry, Dormer is among those actresses and storytellers who is taking matters into her own hands. In one of her post-Game Of Thrones projects, In Darkness (in theaters now), Dormer plays Sofia, a blind musician who, after she hears the murder of a neighbor, is thrown into the gritty underbelly of London, complete with war criminals, fight sequences, and plenty of intrigue. While playing a character like Sofia would be a boon for many actresses, Dormer took it a step further — she wrote In Darkness, too, along with director Anthony Byrne.

Peter Weir’s 1975 film “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” much like the geologic formation named in its title, casts a very long shadow. Based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Joan Lindsay, the movie adaptation tells the story of three young women and a teacher from Appleyard College, who go missing during a Valentine’s Day outing in 1900.

Considered a masterpiece of Australian filmmaking and an achievement in Weir’s early career, the movie created a haunting Victorian aesthetic that is still referenced in films, fashion, and other art forms to this day. Because of this impact, the movie looked as if it would be one of the few classics that would remain untouched by the latest wave of remakes and reboots. Then a group of women came along to change that.

Showrunner and director Larysa Kondracki and star Natalie Dormer spoke to IndieWire about why they dared to tackle “Picnic at Hanging Rock” as a limited series for a new generation.

1. The Series Avoids Weir Altogether

Kondracki herself is an ardent fan of the original film, which is why it took some convincing for her to sign up for the series.

“[The script] was sent to me. I said, ‘Absolutely not. I don’t wanna touch Peter Weir,’” she said. “I was like, ‘Are you crazy? No way.’ Everyone said the same thing: That’s such a canonical film, and you’d hate to be disrespectful of it.”

She soon learned, however, that this was not a remake of Weir’s film, but instead went straight to the source material. Writers Beatrix Christian and Alice Addison adapted Lindsay’s novel into a six-part series for television.

“They said, ‘Read it. It’s a reimagining of the book; it’s not the movie,’” said Kondracki. “The second you read the first page and Bea’s writing, you just went, ‘Okay, this is totally different.’”

Dormer added, “The text is there. It seems bizarre that when the original story is so great that it would only have one incarnation. So we take nothing away from the Weir. It has its reverent place. We’re doing something completely different.”

2. The Adaptation Expands on the Girls’ Stories

Of course, adapting Lindsay’s novel is daunting in itself because it’s also considered to be one of the best Australian novels of all time.

Looks like Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer is stepping up her game with Anthony Byrne’s new thriller In Darkness. Not only is Dormer playing a blind pianist on the run, but she also helped pen the screenplay.

The film co-stars Ed Skrein, who is best known as the villain Ajax in Deadpooland Emily Ratajkowski, who is best known as Ben Affleck’s teenage girlfriend in David Fincher’s thriller Gone Girl. And if you’ve missed word on the film until today, no worries, as we have the flick’s poster and trailer for you to check up on.

I’m immediately interested in seeing the film for not only the cast but to check out how Dormer does with a pen. Plus, the film’s synopsis (which you can read below) sounds like some good old fashioned giallo times to me.

In Darkness is directed by Anthony Byrne from a script he co-wrote with Dormer. The film stars Dormer along with Ratajkowski, Skrein, Joely Richardson, and James Cosmo; it hits theaters and On Demand May 25th.

Synopsis:

Blind pianist Sofia overhears a struggle in the apartment above hers that leads to the death of her neighbor Veronique. It is the start of a journey that pulls Sofia out of her depth and brings her into contact with Veronique’s father, Milos Radic, a Serbian businessman accused of being a war criminal. Sofia is drawn into a dangerous world of corruption, investigating police, hitmen and the Russian mafia – a world with links to Sofia’s own hidden past and a path of revenge she has kept hidden until now.

May 03, 2018   /   Claudia   /   News Picnic at Hanging Rock (2018) Television Productions

Natalie Dormer knew “Picnic at Hanging Rock” was the perfect next project for her when she received a personal letter from director Larysa Kondracki.

“It said, ‘I need this woman not to be an archetype. I need her to be three-dimensional, psychological, littered with flaws and fears. And I need the humanity of her so that she’s not just a bitch,’” Dormer tells Variety of the note.

Kondracki also wrote, “nobody would be able to do that like Natalie Dormer.”

It was a “seductive” pitch for Dormer, who then hopped on a video chat to further talk through the vision for the six-episode limited series based on Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel. (The story was previously adapted for the big screen in 1975.)

The plot centers on the mysterious disappearance of four young women from an Australian boarding college and the damage it does to the school, its staff and students, and ultimately the society around them. It is set in 1900, but Dormer, who was given the first three of Beatrix Christian’s scripts when they were still in early draft form, knew the project was going to be far from a simple period drama.

“Beatrix was a playwright before she was a screenwriter, and in the way she writes her text there is so much subtext that I was just immediately like, ‘Who the f— are these women? This is amazing’,” Dormer says. “There was something in those first few scripts, but the way Larysa spoke of her vision, tonally, it just felt so fresh, so brave [and] courageous in the mashing of genres and strong visual tone that was going to be atmospheric and sophisticated in its nonlinear storytelling. It was going to have a real psychological element.”

The collaboration continued when the cameras rolled as well.

“Larysa had this great policy that whoever comes up with the best idea and it gets used on-screen gets a bottle of wine,” Dormer says. “It encourages you to speak up.”

Dormer plays Mrs. Appleyard, a buttoned-up, strict, and unflinching headmistress of a women’s college. “Appleyard thinks the way she is raising the girls she is doing them a favor. She genuinely thinks she’s passing on the torch of knowledge. What she’s actually doing is passing on archaic structures that stifle those girls’ spirits and that they’re rebelling against,” Dormer says. “She’s trying to help and tragically damaging and I just found that interesting — to try and break down that psychology.”

But that is all just a persona she is putting on, says Dormer.

“She’s running from a past — she’s literally running. She’s victimized and haunted by her past and her secrets, and her way of trying to deal with that is holding it tightly and putting a lid on it and being this tyrant,” she says.

As the episodes unfold, the audience learns how who she was as a girl informs the woman she has become. After the four young women go missing, she begins to unravel. That was the part of the draw of the role for Dormer.

“As an actor that’s just delicious to play — as the layers fall off, to keep scrambling to try to maintain control,” she says.

Though the series is set at the turn of the 20th century, its themes are still relevant today, says Dormer.

“It’s scary how 1900 and 2018, those themes of female independence — emotionally, spiritually, financially — finding a sense of identity, not needing a man, not being defined by being what your peer group suggests you should be, peer culture, authority rebellion, spirit and voice within those constructs [are similar],” she says. “I think in a highly anxious time for young men and women those anxieties of ‘Who the f— am I?’ are as relevant to our characters in 1900 as they are in 2018.”

“Is it true that the loss of one sense sharpens the others?”

Natalie Dormer stars as a blind pianist in the upcoming thriller, In Darkness, and in this exclusive first trailer, she may be the only person who heard anything after her neighbor (played by Emily Ratajkowski) turns up dead. Dormer’s Sofia may be caught up in something far bigger, however, and as she navigates a hit man (Ed Skein) and war criminals, her own secrets will come to light.

Dormer co-wrote the film, her first feature screenplay, with director Anthony Byrne. (Who is also her partner.) “That was the cherry on the top of the cake,” she told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I’m so in awe of Anthony as a director. I think he’s fantastic and so talented and, you know, I got this acting sh*t slightly under control. The interesting part was writing together.”

“It was like a baby had, like, taken seven and a half years to get to that first day on set,” Dormer explained during her sit-down with ET. “It’s so personal and you’re so appreciative of the crew and the fellow actors, because it really feels like it’s yours.”

The actress wrote the script years before she would eventually break out on Game of Thrones, at a time when she was frustrated with the types of roles she was being offered. “Hold on to your hats for a moment. Imagine life before Game of Thrones,” she said with a laugh. “It was before I did The Hunger Games. So, I was fully anticipating that I was writing a female part and a story that I would want to watch, but I wouldn’t have the honor of playing.”

It was only after finishing her work on the HBO series — Dormer’s Margaery Tyrell was killed off at the end of season six — that she thought she might have “enough clout” to lead her own film. “That was like Christmas. Thanksgiving,” she said. “That was everything at once.” (As for the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones, Dormer teases, “I know stuff I wish I didn’t know…It’s really exciting. And I’m going to be sitting on that sofa like the rest of you going, ‘How do they do this?!'”)

In Darkness is in theaters on May 25.

“Picnic at Hanging Rock,” the new TV adaption of the Australian cult classic, kicked off the Berlin Film Festival’s TV sidebar Monday, and while the show has been generating quite a bit of buzz, getting it made was initially tough because of the long shadow cast by Peter Weir’s critically acclaimed 1975 film adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel.

“No one wanted to do it,” said the new show’s director, Larysa Kondracki, discussing the series shortly after the first two episodes premiered at the Berlinale Series.

“You’d tell any crew member that you’re making ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock,’ and they’d ask, ‘Why?’ Because it’s a great book, it’s a great thing. ‘No, absolutely not, I’m not going to touch that.’

“But something about it lingered and when you read the first page [of the TV adaptation], you realize this isn’t the original film. This is something else.”

Set in 1900, the story centers on a group of young women at a boarding school who inexplicably vanish at Australia’s Hanging Rock while on a Valentine’s Day picnic.

Natalie Dormer (“Game of Thrones,” “Hunger Games”), who plays strict headmistress Hester Appleyard, described Beatrix Christian and Alice Addison’s script as “visionary,” adding that it was “sophisticated storytelling for a sophisticated audience.”

Dormer initially balked at the historical drama. After performing in such high-profile costume dramas as “The Tudors” and “Game of Thrones,” the British actress said she “didn’t want to be pigeon-holed as a corset wearer.”

Meeting Kondracki and reading the script changed her mind.

“I’m so glad I did,” Dormer said, stressing that “Picnic at Hanging Rock” is not your typical costume drama. “Don’t be under any illusions because of the costumes and horses. This is a very modern thriller-mystery, a dramatic piece.”

Variety International Editor Henry Chu, who conducted the Drama Series Days onstage conversation with Dormer and Kondracki, noted that the series seemed to have elements of “A Room With a View,” “The Shining” and “Mean Girls.”

On Dormer’s casting as the headmistress, Kondracki said it was important for her to cast someone in the role who was closer in age to the girls in the school “so you could really feel just a few years’ difference and that Hester could have been one of these girls and that they’re also a real threat” to her, an aspect that would have been lost with an older headmaster.

Dormer added that the casting was actually accurate for the time, pointing to such literary characters as Jane Eyre and Blanche DuBois. “A woman was a spinster if she wasn’t married by the time she was in her late 20s.”

Discussing the series’ themes of repressed sexuality, Kondracki said there was “a beautiful scene” in the third episode: “It’s a kiss between two girls and it’s not about sexuality,” said Kondracki, a Canadian who has directed episodes of “The Americans” and “The Walking Dead.” “It’s about discovery and friendship….There’s a sexiness to this show, but it’s restrained.”

Dormer called it a “sexiness not through the male gaze. It’s sexiness through female sexuality. It’s sensual.

“There’s magic to this,” she added. “It feels like the spirit of Joan Lindsay is with us. There is something transcendental. That’s what Larysa created – a touch of fairy dust.”

Vertical Entertainment has acquired the US rights to Anthony Byrne’s “IN DARKNESS” starring Natalie Dormer, Ed Skrein, Emily Ratajkowski, Jan Bijvoet, Neil Maskell, James Cosmo, and Joely Richardson. The film, which Dormer and Byrne co-wrote and was produced by 42, will be in theaters in May 2018. XYZ Films is selling the international territories at the Berlin Film Festival and market.

Blind pianist Sofia (Natalie Dormer) overhears a struggle in the apartment above hers that leads to the death of her neighbor Veronique (Emily Ratajkowski). It is the start of a journey that pulls Sofia out of her depth and brings her into contact with Veronique’s father, Milos Radic (Jan Bijvoet). A Serbian businessman accused of being a war criminal, Sofia is drawn into a dangerous world of corruption, investigating police, hitmen and the Russian mafia – a world with links to Sofia’s own hidden past and a path of revenge she has kept hidden until now.

“Natalie Dormer and Anthony Byrne are two incredibly passionate filmmakers who have brought a powerful female voice to the forefront of this exciting thriller and we look forward to bringing the film to audiences around the US,” says Rich Goldberg of Vertical Entertainment,” said co-president Rich Goldberg.

Said Dormer and Byrne in a joint statement: “The zeitgeist dialogue on gender disparity hadn’t even begun when we started writing IN DARKNESS together. We celebrate that the industry landscape is finally shifting and are proud to share IN DARKNESS with its strong yet flawed heroine. We are thrilled to have Vertical Entertainment releasing the film in the US and giving us the opportunity of a theatrical release.”

The deal was negotiated by Goldberg and Peter Jarowey at Vertical and UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

“IN DARKNESS” was directed by Anthony Byrne, written by Anthony Byrne and Natalie Dormer, produced by Anthony Byrne, Natalie Dormer, Adam Morane-Griffiths, Ben Pugh, and Josh Varney, executive produced by Rory Aitken and Joshua Horsfield, and co-produced by Olive Uniacke, with editing by Todd Harrison-Read and Paul Knight, cinematography by Si Bell, production design by Sonja Klaus, and music by Niall Byrne.

Vanda Jordan in Venus In Fur at Theatre Royal Haymarket, London
Five years ago, if you could beg a ticket off someone you might have been lucky enough to see Natalie Dormer stun in Miss Julie, a Patrick Marber rewrite of Strindberg’s war classic. Well, with Marber directing Dormer at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, it seems the creative partnership has brought out the best in one another yet again. Although the run ended in December, Dormer’s take on the mysterious Vanda, a savvy, unapologetic New York actress busting down audition doors with sex and self-confidence, has gone some way to reminding critics that she is far greater than the sum of her television appearances, most famously her role in the mighty yet oh-so-drawn-out Game Of Thrones. On stage, her serious star wattage is switched on and luminous for all to see. We watch on, happily

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer stands front and centre of Foxtel’s impressive big-budget miniseries Picnic at Hanging Rock.

The first scene of the six-part series, made by Fremantle Australia and since picked up by Amazon in the US and the BBC in the UK among others, is of Dormer’s Mrs Appleyard, seen from behind, framed by a large Victorian window and bathed in golden light.

If first impressions count, and they do, this one is a beauty.

The first episode of the highly anticipated series was unveiled this week at a special event in Macedon, just down the road from the setting of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel (the events of which are entirely fictitious, contrary to popular misconception).

Dormer, 36, plays an Englishwoman seemingly fresh off the boat in the colonies, a well-bred widow still in mourning but determined to build a new life every bit as substantial and imposing as the mansion in the middle of nowhere that she buys with what we assume is her inheritance.

The building becomes the site of Appleyard College, an elite boarding school. Chief among its students are Miranda Reid (Lily Sullivan), a headstrong country girl bridling at the prospect of being “finished” just so she can become someone’s wife; Marion Quade (Madeleine Madden), blessed with brains and beauty but cursed by dint of being the illegitimate half-caste daughter of a high-ranking colonial officer; and Irma Leopold (Samara Weaving), a young lady from “home” rather appalled to find herself in the Victorian bush rather than in the salons of Paris.

These three, of course, will all go missing on the day of the fateful picnic, St Valentine’s Day 1900.

Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer has said a change has already come to the film industry, as it continues to deal with the sexual harassment scandal.

The actress, best known for playing Margaery Tyrell in the TV drama, said she saw many reasons to be positive as she announced the Bafta film awards nominations.

She told the Press Association: “We have drawn a line now, we are overcoming outdated power structures. It’s time to celebrate, and be positive.”

She added: “A change has come. It’s not ‘is it coming?’ It has come, it’s here and we will now see the results of that over the upcoming years, because that’s how long it takes to write, fund and shoot movies, so hopefully this is the beginning.

“It’s a culture change, it’s about audiences voting with their feet or with what they click on their televisions.

“It’s a change to the culture so audiences want to watch as many stories about female, gay, transgender, different racial protagonists.

“We want to tell diverse stories so empower us to do so.”

Asked if she thinks the phenomenon of nominees and presenters wearing black to stand in solidarity with the victims of abuse, as seen at the Golden Globes, will continue at the Baftas, she said: “It’s up to the individual, you can show solidarity in more than one way.”

Referencing Oprah Winfrey’s galvanising speech at Sunday’s awards ceremony, she added: “I don’t think you will find anyone who is not in solidarity with what has been said and Oprah Winfrey talked about pretty phenomenal men as well as magnificent women, let’s not ostracise the guys.”

Letitia Wright, who announced the nominations alongside Dormer and will soon be seen in the upcoming Marvel film Black Panther, added: “To see everybody discussing this and voice their opinion and to say ‘no, time’s up’, that is refreshing as a young person in the industry, to see something is happening and people are coming together.

“Men and women are coming together to say ‘hey, that’s wrong’.

“This is something we learn at school as kids growing up, to respect one another, so to have to implement that back again into our industry, it’s a shame but it’s very necessary.

“Once we get that on the head, respect, love, honouring each other, then we can move forward and we won’t have to be in this place. I’m looking forward to how it’s going to change.”

Natalie Dormer feels female directors will get more recognition. ‘Game of Thrones’ star Natalie Dormer believes female directors will start being regularly recognised for their work at awards ceremonies in four years/ because of how long it takes for movies to be made. The 35-year-old actress – who shot to fame in ‘The Tudors’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ – announced the nominations for the 2018 BAFTAs on Tuesday (09.01.18) but there was some controversy after no women were listed in the Best Director category. Natalie accepts that there were some fantastic films made by her gender over the past 12 months but she thinks now is the time to be “celebrating” the fact that people are talking about gender inequality in the movie business as the recognition will follow. Speaking to ITV News, Natalie mused: “The thing with filmmaking is it takes time. It takes time to redraft the script, it takes time to find the money, it takes time to get the talent’s schedules lined up to shoot them. So what I’m more interested in is celebrating that we are all talking it now. So then in the next two, three, four years that is where we can hold ourselves to account.” The nominees for the Best Director BAFTA are Guillermo del Toro for ‘The Shape of the Water’, ‘Blade Runner 2049’ helmer Denis Villeneuve, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ director Luca Guadagnino, ‘Dunkirk’ filmmaker Christopher Nolan and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ mastermind Martin McDonagh. The lack of female directors being nominated also affected the Golden Globes and Barbra Streisand revealed her shock at being the one woman to ever win the Best Director Globe for a movie 34 years ago. The 75-year-old singer-and-actress won one of the prestigious gongs for her 1984 movie ‘Yentl’, but while presenting the final award at the American ceremony last Sunday evening (07.01.18), Barbra pointed out that it was only men listed in this year’s Best Director category. She said: “So, backstage I heard they said something about me, I was the only woman to get – did I hear right – the only woman to get the Best Director award, and you know that was 1984. That was 34 years ago. Folks, time’s up. We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director. There are so many films out there that are so good directed by women.”

Hi all,

As you can see we have a brand new layout on the main site which is designed by me.  This layout is also responsive so if you are on any mobile or tablet devices, the main site is now mobile friendly.  A big thank you to my friend Claudia who helped my learn how to do responsive themes.

I hope you all like the new look.  I know i haven’t updated the site since I brought the site back online, the last term of university was incredibly intense.  The good news is, I have now graduated with a Bachelor of Psychological Science!!  I am now in the process of getting a job with my degree.   Now that I have graduated, I now I have more time on my hands and will be working on getting this site up-to-date again.

Watch this space, updates are coming soon.

Hi all,

Many of you would know Captivating from when it was at the url natalie-dormer.com.  I made a choice last year to close all my fansites as I was too much online and not outside interacting with other people.  I don’t regret the decision as it taught me alot about myself and taught me which sites I really loved and those I loved but not enough to run a site on.  But most importantly I learned that I was spending so much time online I was shutting the real world out.  Fellow fansite webmasters are all familiar with the phenomenon where we take on too much and many still struggle with cutting down and realising its a hobby, its not meant to take over your life.

I missed this site alot and have decided despite my busy uni schedule, I wanted to open it again.  I adore Natalie and she is the one out of all I closed I truly missed the most  I will be now only running this site and one other I am building.  I am content with that as fansites are meant to be a hobby, I have learned alot about myself as I said and I have no desire to return to where I was before.

So, I am so excited to have Captivating back online and continuing to show my admiration for Natalie.  I will try to catch the site up as soon as I am able to.

A big thank you to both Claudia and Stef.  Stef for allowing me to use this domain and Claudia for always been such a supportive friend and also allowing me to use the domain as her Natalie site which resided on it had just been merged into Stef’s Natalie site natalie-dormer.net.

Hello everyone,

I appologise for my long absence from the site. I have been going through alot of changes in my personal life and running my sites was the last thing on my mind. I won’t make any promises as to when the site will be back up-to-date but know that is my ultimate wish and plan.

In the meantime, our previous host shut doors and we have now moved to our new home at Flaunt. A huge thank-you to them as they made the transfer progress so seamless and I didn’t have to lift a finger and with my slow internet that was gratefully appreciated.

Please watch this space for when the updates resumes.

She had to be willing to shave her head. That was a deal-breaker.
Natalie Dormer had just received the call every actor wants — she was a contender for the final “Hunger Games” films, “Mockingjay” Parts 1 and 2, for a key role: Cressida, a documentary filmmaker who turns Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) into an icon of the revolution.
In the novel, Cressida’s head is not only shaved, it’s also tattooed with an elaborate vine. Would Dormer, who’s known for playing bewitching characters — Margaery Tyrell on “Game of Thrones,” Moriarty on “Elementary” — sacrifice her lovely mane?

Dormer, 32, did what she always does: She convened her friends. “We went round the dinner table, and the opinion was unanimous,” she says by phone from Los Angeles. “You’d have to be an idiot to say no to ‘Hunger Games.’ And hair grows back.”
Ultimately, director Francis Lawrence decided Cressida would look edgier if she shaved only one side of her head.
For the next nine months, as the two films shot back to back, Dormer buzzed half her skull every day, and rocked some funky red carpet experiments by night. (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1” opens Nov. 21.)

Game Of Thrones stars Leda Headey and Natalie Dormer have joined global children’s charity PlanUK in their “Because I Am A Girl” campaign to stop violence against young girls.

According to PlanUK:

Face Up is part of the Because I Am A Girl campaign. It is running alongside our projects in some of the world’s poorest countries to end FGM and child marriage in a generation.

“At the Girl Summit in June this year, the UK government declared its commitment to ending child marriage and FGM in a generation. Adding your face to our campaign will show the public is right behind this pledge – and ensure politicians continue to prioritise this vital work.”

The campaign is to eradicate such atrocities as forced child marriage, female genital mutilation, and sexual assault. Though Game Of Thrones (mercifully) eschews the middle of those three, it’s a show that certainly delves into the first and third.

If you’re interested in learning more about the campaign yourself, check out their website here.

“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer will return to the CBS series “Elementary.”

The announcement that the actress would be back on the Sherlock Holmes drama, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, was made at PaleyFest in New York City on Saturday night.

Natalie has a dual role on the show. In the past, she played Sherlock’s love interest Irene Adler. But, in the double-episode Season 1 finale, it was revealed that she is actually Moriarty, Sherlock’s greatest enemy.

When asked about the possibility of returning to the show back in May by Access Hollywood, when the “Elementary” cast were prepping to shoot the Season 2 premiere in London, Natalie said she would be up for coming back.

“All I can say is I am on this side of the Atlantic. I have to be because of ‘Thrones.’ Shooting on ‘Thrones’ begins in July, but it’s serendipity that I’m on the right side of the Atlantic in case Rob [Doherty, the show’s executive producer] wanted to use me again. So, who knows? I can’t say enough positive things about how much I enjoyed being a part of the ‘Elementary’ family for the time that I was. So, I would always be open to the idea of working with that fantastic cast and with Rob again, definitely.”

She’s made a name for herself bringing a sultry modernity to royal characters, but now Natalie Dormer is ready to abdicate.

“I want to challenge people’s perceptions of me,” says the 31-year-old actress, who’s currently in Dubrovnik, Croatia, filming the fourth season of “Game of Thrones,” in which she plays Margaery Tyrell, soon-tobe wife of the evil King Joffrey. It’s her third prominent royal role, after playing Anne Boleyn on Showtime’s “The Tudors” and a young Queen Elizabeth in Madonna’s film “W.E.”

But Dormer, a Brit, has a wider range than those parts — juicy though they may be — would suggest. Careerwise, she’s got a specific role model in mind.

“Helena Bonham Carter started off in a similar fashion,” says Dormer, referring to Carter’s early, aristocratic gigs, “and she managed to shake it off.” So Dormer is broadening her horizons in several disparate directions.

English actress Natalie Dormer has a gift for seduction. As Anne Boleyn on The Tudors, she was the medieval minx who transformed Europe. And on the addictive Game of Thrones, the 31-year-old is a shrewd player cloaked in sylphlike innocence. This month she appears in Rush, about European Formula One racing in its 1970s heyday.
Do you like to drive? “I love to drive. My present to myself from The Tudors was a red Mazda MX5 hard-top convertible. I loved that car, and also what she represented—my first success.”
Automatic or standard? “Come on, you’re talking to a European. None of this automatic bollocks. You’ve got to feel the car, feel the gears.”
How do you explain the Game of Thrones mania? “There’s the violence and the bloodletting and the honor. And then there’s the romance and the sex and the naked bodies. There are the costumes, and the coming-of-age stories for younger viewers. There are gay heroes and straight heroes. There’s feminism. And there’s dragons and supernatural shit going on. There’s magic and CGI for the geeks. There is literally something for everyone.”
You’ve done your fair share of nudity. Are those scenes ever a challenge? “It’s always a bit traumatic. Being comfortable with your body is not the same thing as feeling completely at ease doing a sex scene. I’m comfortable with my body, but to do nudity [as part of your job] is sometimes not as easy as you’d like it to be.”
What do you do to maintain your figure? “I’m a massive yoga head. Lots of yoga and lots of running. I do Bikram yoga. I adore it.”

Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is keen for a bit more air time in the show’s fourth series after she was omitted from the controversial Red Wedding episode and the season three finale.

The 31-year-old actress, who plays  Margaery Tyrell in the gritty HBO drama, is hoping her character will get the opportunity to react to the unexpected bloodshed next time around.

Quizzed on how she felt Margaery would have responded to the Red Wedding, Natalie told Entertainment Weekly: ‘I hope that you’ll see it in the future, in season 4. Something like the Red Wedding just goes to illustrate the darkness of Tywin Lannister. It’s one thing being a politically savvy family like the Tyrells, but it’s quite another to be so amoral, immoral, in your pursuit of power and control.

‘I think the Lannisters are the only family that would have orchestrated [something like] that. So yeah, I would imagine the reaction from the Tyrells — what happened to the Starks is going to terrorise them somewhat. I mean, these are the in-laws!’

She goes on to explain that she has made a conscious decision not to read the books and is yet to await her fate.

She continued: ‘I haven’t read the books on purpose. I’ve chosen not to. I know the broad strokes, the trajectory of what happens. Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] are very good at surprising us all.

‘Even when you know what is going to happen to your character, you have no idea of how or when it’s going to happen. So there is still a great level of unpredictability,’ she added.

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.

How does a bright-eyed, sweet-natured, deceptively ambitious teenage girl navigate the treacherous waters of King’s Landing society — not to mention the cruel nature of her sadistic husband-to-be and his scheming mother — without losing her head? Simple: By hiding her true motives behind a megawatt smile, wielding innocence and enthusiasm as skillfully as a swordsman brandishes his blade.

It also helps if that teenager is played by 31-year-old Natalie Dormer, a seasoned performer who specializes in masters of manipulation like The Tudors‘ Anne Boleyn (another noble with royal ambitions) and Elementary‘s Irene Adler/Moriarty.

In Dormer’s hands, these characters are never just seductive scam artists. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones, for example, is certainly cunning — but in the actress’ mind, she’s also genuinely caring, thoughtful, and liberal-minded. “She has quite a modern take on power and how it operates, which is fascinating to play,” Dorner told EW in between screenings at the Edinburgh Film Festival. We’re guessing she was being sincere — though with an actress like this, it’s always just a little tough to tell for sure.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You first appeared on Game of Thrones in season 2, but your character didn’t really break out until season 3. Was there a particular moment this year when you started to feel like you had become a more integral part of the ensemble?
NATALIE DORMER:
Yeah, absolutely. I thought I’d talk to you about the crossbow scene in episode 2, with me and Jack [Gleeson] talking in Joffrey’s bedchamber.

That’s the bomb Elementary dropped on both Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and the audience Thursday after a mysterious man claiming to be Moriarty led Holmes straight to his one and only love. Sherlock had long believed Irene (Natalie Dormer) to be dead after discovering a healthy amount of her blood in London. But she is, in fact, alive, having been held captive for the last 18 months. This, of course, raises the question: Why now? With Sherlock hot on Moriarty’s trail, how will Irene fit into all of this? TVGuide.com turned to Dormer to get the scoop on Irene’s return. Plus: Check out an exclusive sneak peek of the extended season finale promo below!

Tell us about this version of Irene Adler and how you play her.
Natalie Dormer:
When I went into the meeting with [executive producer] Rob Doherty to talk about playing her, we talked about how you have to choose an angle at how to play Irene depending on who your Sherlock is. The wonderful thing about the way Rob writes Elementary is that Sherlock has this issue of his addiction and this darkness and this vulnerability that he has due to being an addict. You could argue it’s a nice nod to the Arthur Conan Doyle novels in a way that other incarnations of modern-day Sherlocks don’t actually pick up on. So for me and Rob to have a conversation on how to tackle Irene, you’re very much aware that Irene Adler has to be the woman, the only woman who has ever gotten under the skin or close to — to terrorize or to invigorate — Sherlock. She’s intelligent, fiery, and Rob said she’s got a bit of the devil in her. She’s a nice yin to Sherlock’s yang. She’s stimulates him mentally as well as other areas, as we all know that’s what Sherlock responds to: being challenged and stimulated mentally. She’s a good foil. She makes him feel alive and feel human.

In present day, she’s been held captive for a long time, so what is the initial interaction like between Sherlock and Irene?
Dormer:
They’ve both been traumatized. She essentially has been incarcerated for 18 months and he’s been incarcerated within himself and dealing with his addiction, so they’ve both gone through a heavily traumatic experience. It’s that thing when you’ve been incredibly close to someone — the closest you can be to someone on a mental and emotional level — and then you go through trauma that changes you, then how do two people who have been so close react to each other when they meet as if they’re strangers? They’ve both come out of the other side that has altered them and their sense of self and identity and everything they thought and knew and believed about themselves. It’s really interesting to play. It’s a gift of a role and a story line for that reason because the chemistry is obviously still there. There was a bond between them which can never be denied and yet they’re strangers at the moment because of what they’ve been through. It’s very human in that it’s a heightened version of what it is to lose someone or the love of your life and find them again and the trauma in that.

As we say in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly hitting stands Friday, behind every man with a thirst for sex and power is an equally clever, manipulative woman… who could be played brilliantly by Natalie Dormer.

The 31-year-old Brit, who broke out Stateside in 2007 as the seductive Anne Boleyn to Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ King Henry VIII in The Tudors and now embodies King Joffrey’s shrewd betrothed Margaery Tyrell on HBO’s Game of Thrones, begins a three-episode stint tonight as Sherlock Holmes’ iconic love Irene Adler on CBS’ Elementary (through May 16′s two-hour season finale). “It’s a real privilege to be asked to play that one woman who has gotten under Sherlock’s skin,” Dormer says, noting that Elementary creator Robert Doherty was a fan of her work on the 2011 cult supernatural British TV show The Fades.

Unsure if her schedule would align with the show’s, Doherty and fellow exec producer Carl Beverly wouldn’t tell her much about the arc when they first met. “We had this kind of really amusing conversation where they were like, ‘We love you!’ And I was like, ‘I love you!’” she recalls. Though she got all the details when she officially signed on, she’s still going to be “reasonably coy” with us…

What we do know is that in this incarnation, Irene is presumed dead at the hands of Moriarty — the reason Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) started his downward spiral and moved to New York. We meet her in flashback and find out she worked in art restoration and met Holmes when she was asked to consult on a case. ”Occasionally, two personalities bump into each other and this mad chemical reaction happens — and not just sexual. Obviously because of the nature of Sherlock Holmes, it’s cerebral as well. He has to engage with somebody on an intellectual level to really be inspired or intoxicated by them. And the feeling is mutual,” Dormer says. “Irene brings out an entirely different side of his personality that no one else has yet been privy to. So it’s interesting to see Sherlock go through that turmoil.”

Watch out, Joffrey!

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is set to take on the iconic role of Irene Adler Elementary, CBS confirms to E! News. Dormer, who plays current queen-to-be Margaery Tyrell on HBO’s fantasy hit, will make her debut as Sherlock Holmes’ (Jonny Lee Miller) former love in the May 9 episode and will also appear in the two-hour season finale on May 19.

“We’re moving to the next chapter in our show—and in some ways, to a previous chapter in Holmes’ story,” executive producer Rob Doherty said in a statement. “Irene Adler is perhaps the most pivotal relationship in Sherlock’s life, and I can’t think of an actress better suited to the challenge than Natalie.”

In CBS’ take on the classic story, Sherlock learned that his former employer Moriarty (whom viewers have yet to meet) was behind Irene’s mysterious death, which led the brilliant consultant detective to develop a drug addiction.

Of course, Dormer isn’t the first actress to play what is arguably the Sherlock Holmes franchise’s most important female character: Rachel McAdams took on the role in Robert Downey Jr..-led film franchise and BBC’s super-popular Sherlock cast Lara Pulver as Adler opposite Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Sherlock.

TVGuide.com first reported the news of Dormer’s casting.

Elementary airs Thursday at 10 p.m. on CBS.

Actress Natalie Dormer plays the role of Margaery Tyrell on the HBO series “Game of Thrones.”

Given the short life expectancy of characters on “Game of Thrones,” actress Natalie Dormer made sure she took advantage of the first chance she got to sit on the show’s infamous Iron Throne.

“It was a photo opportunity and I took it,” the British stunner who plays Lady Margaery Tyrell on the hit HBO fantasy says, quick to show a Daily News reporter the photographic evidence of her brief reign — at a San Francisco screening — on her iPhone.

“These are moments in your life to be cherished, they don’t come around that often,” says Dormer. “To be flying around in a ‘Game of Thrones’ jet, to be greeted by massive enthusiasts. So you cherish those experiences because you might end up in a theater being paid two pence a week, doing something you really love just for the passion, that no one comes to see in six months’ time.”

That’s probably not going to be a real concern for the 31-year-old actress anytime soon, as the third season of “Game of Thrones” debuts tonight at 9 p.m.

Dormer, who rose to fame on this side of the pond on Showtime’s “The Tudors,” normally would have stayed away from “another long-skirts-and-horses gig,” as she calls period dramas. The opportunity to saddle up on “Game of Thrones,” though, was too great to turn down. (Even if she auditioned for a completely different role that she declines to reveal.)

And even if that meant occasionally baring more than her soul as Margaery, who this season is a major player in the court of King’s Landing as the intended bride of King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson).

“They put us all up in the same hotel whether we’re (filming) in Croatia or Belfast, so pretty much the person who has a sex scene at the end of the week is the person who’s in the gym or not coming out for dinner,” she says, laughing.

During the six months a year she’s not filming “Game of Thrones,” Dormer has been exercising other acting muscles. She just wrapped work opposite Brad Pitt on the upcoming film, “The Counselor.” It wasn’t that long ago that she was an usher at the London production of “The Lion King” as she made her way through drama school, and here she is being directed by Ridley Scott.

“When Ridley Scott was directing me, I did have a bit of a moment,” says Dormer. “A cinematographer friend of mine had bought me an original 1982 vintage Japanese ‘Blade Runner’ movie poster for my birthday last February … and then six months later, I got the call. So I actually took my poster on set and asked Ridley to sign it. And he was like, ‘This is amazing you have this, how do you have this?’ ”

Now she has an autographed original 1982 vintage Japanese “Blade Runner” movie poster on her study wall.

“Sometimes the universe conspires for you,” she says, “and those are beautiful moments that you cherish.”

HBO’s epic masterpiece Game of Thrones is back for Season 3, with bigger battles, devastating betrayals and more deaths, as everyone fights for control of the Iron Throne.  Now that magic is growing stronger and the dragons have been let loose, there’s no telling who might be in jeopardy or in power next.

At the show’s press day, co-stars Sophie Turner (“Sansa Stark”) and Natalie Dormer (“Margaery Tyrell”) talked about how nice Jack Gleeson is versus how much people hate King Joffrey, how the relationship between Sansa and Margaery will evolve in Season 3, what it was like to work with Diana Rigg (“Olenna”), how Sansa has found her strength after the Battle of Blackwater, what sort of relationship both women will have with Cersei (Lena Headey), how much of the books they’ve read, that the actors get together in Belfast for a read-through of five episodes over two days before each season starts shooting, how they feel like fans of the show themselves, and how much of an effect the success of Game of Thrones has had on them.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Question:  Does it amuse you to see how worked up fans get about Joffrey? 

SOPHIE TURNER:  It is funny because people are totally different about Jack [Gleeson], when you talk to them.  It is really kind of amusing, thinking that people really detest him, when he’s the nicest guy, ever. 

NATALIE DORMER:  He’s the nicest guy.  He’s stupidly nice.  

TURNER:  It’s ridiculous!  

DORMER:  And he’s very erudite.  He’s studying at Trinity College in Dublin, at the moment.  

TURNER:  He’s a scholar.  

DORMER:  He’s doing theology.  He’s off the charts.  So, he’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well.  It’s very disturbing. 

Does Margaery realize that Joffrey is crazy?

Natalie, James McAvoy and Benedict Cumberbatch have all signed on to star in a radio version of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.  This photo was posted on twitter and the interview below is from the Radio Times.

001

James McAvoy, star of the X-Men movies, heads up the cast, along with Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch and Natalie Dormer, formerly of BBC3’s supernatural drama The Fades and currently filming Game of Thrones.

Homeland’s David Harewood and his fellow Doctor Who alumni Sophie Okonedo and Brenard Cribbins are joined by Anthony Head, star of Merlin and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as Saruman (and Dracula) himself, Sir Christopher Lee.

Neverwhere is the tale of businessman Richard Mayhew (McAvoy) whose life is turned upside-down when he comes to the aid of a young woman named Door (Dormer). In helping Door, Richard ceases to exist in his own world – London Above – and is transported to the magical parallel universe that lurks beneath it – London Below, where the capital’s landmarks take on new significance.

Knightsbridge is the Night’s Bridge, which demands human life as its toll, while other famous places become characters in themselves. Christopher Lee is the Earl of Earl’s Court, while Benedict Cumberbatch is the mysterious angel Islington and Bernard Cribbins plays another underworld inhabitant, Old Bailey.

Last night, Harewood – who stars as trickster the Marquis de Carabas – posted a photo on Twitter of the cast holding a banner bidding Gaiman “Greetings from London Below!”. Gaiman himself will be a narrator in Neverwhere, but was unable to join the actors for the recording.

Neverwhere began life in 1996 as a six-part BBC2 TV series co-created by Gaiman and Lenny Henry, before being expanded into a novel by Gaiman. It has also inspired a series of graphic novels and a stage play.

The Radio 4 adaptation is expected to air early next year.
