Natalie Dormer, brilliant actress in The Tudors and Game of Thrones, has a lot of good points. Today, we name ten of them:
Natalie Dormer was born in 1982, in Reading, Berkshire UK in an ordinary family. Then, all her career is fruit of her hard work.
At School, Natalie was head-girl, really brilliant student and vice-captain of the school netball team in spite of having suffered bullying.
In her A Lebel, she decided she would audition for drama schools and decided to train at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
Six months after graduating from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, Natalie Dormer auditioned and won the role of Victoria in Casanova with Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller. This was her film debut and the movie was released in 2005, a first success! However, the life of actors and actress is strange and after Casanova, she was out of work for nine months. Natalie has said that “It was the best lesson I could have had in the first 12 months of my career.”
In 2008, she played Moira Nicholson in Miss Marple: Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? and appears in a number of forthcoming movies. No surprise, because she had already played Anne Boleyn in The Tudors and critics had been fantastic. For example, Robert Abele of LA Weekly wrote, “Natalie Dormer presents a painterly exquisiteness and complexity in her portrayal of Anne Boleyn… her enigmatic, time-halting loveliness is a boon for The Tudors, and damn near worth losing your head over.”
In 2010, she made her stage debut at the Young Vic theater in London as Mizi in the play Sweet Nothings. In The Observer, Susannah Clapp wrote, “Natalie Dormer is lissome as a dirty, delightful gadabout, pushing aside an entire chess game in order to put down her hat.”
This same year, Natalie was also cast in the lead role for the movie adaptation of the Peter Straub novel Shadowland.
And in June 2011, she joined the cast of the famous TV series Game of Thrones as Margaery Tyrell of the noble House Tyrell, where she plays formidably once again.
We also love her as Duchess of York in Madonna’s movie.
Definitely, she is one of the best actress of our days and the best are her roles as Anne Boleyn in TV series The Tudors and as Margaery Tyrell in the 2011 HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones.
