Natalie Dormer Hit the Brakes for a Certain ‘Seduction’ Scene in S4


We all love a good seduction especially if it’s on Game of Thrones. However, Natalie Dormer (a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell) said she had to hit the brakes a bit for a certain scene she would be doing with Dean-Charles Chapman who portrays the young and naive King Tommen.

We all remember the chaos that was season 4 of Game of Thrones but remember the scene where Margaery visited the young king in the late hours of the night to ‘chat’ and ‘further get to know each other’? You remember! Ser Pounce was there and she left him after giving him a kiss on the forehead….it was real awkward….I know you remember! Well, that was the scene that was apparently ‘toned’ down for the show.

Natalie Dormer expressed:

The scene was altered because I phoned Dan and David and said, ‘I’m not comfortable doing this.’ George R.R. Martin wrote a particular plot line, so on the specifics of Margaery and Tommen getting married, there’s nothing I can do. On the show, we had to find a way to navigate that in a sensitive way. There’s more of it next season too, and we’re trying to handle it with intelligence and integrity. 

As far as the characters go, Tommen is aged to be 13 and I believe Margaery is set at 16 so that’s not entirely too weird when you look at all of the other arranged marriages that have appeared on the show BUT, at the same time, the actor is only 17 years old where Natalie is actually 32 so now we can all see how awkward it may be. Completely understandable!

I won’t revel too many specifics as to what is in store for Margaery and Tommen next season, I’ll let you check out the full article HERE for that. But, what is good is that D&D were very kind to work the scene out to make it less awkward for Dormer. +1 for them as producers! What does everyone else think? Are you glad they changed the scene or were you hoping for a little awkwardness as you watched?


Natalie Dormer Takes to the Big Screen


In recent news, it seems the lovely Natalie Dormer who portrays the mischievous Margaery Tyrell will be taking some time away from the small screen to film another movie. But, don’t worry, she’ll be back on Game of Thrones still plotting against Cersei Lannister as we’ve seen these past few seasons.

According to moviefone:

Natalie Dormer has signed on her first starring role, and it sounds awesome. Dormer will star in “The Forest,” which is about a woman who goes searching for her twin in Japan’s infamous Aokigahara Forest.

Sounds interesting enough…if she’s searching for her twin, will she play the twin too? Double the Dormer? Guess we’ll find out but this is where it gets interesting…and creepy. I don’t know much about Japanese culture or the land itself but MovieFone further provided information about the forest and what will make this movie an ultimate thriller:

Aokigahar Forest is also known as the Suicide Forest, and it’s one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. According to Atlas Obscura, “Japanese spirtualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have permeated Aokigahara’s trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest’s depths. 

Now if that doesn’t sound twisted, I don’t know what does. I had never heard of this forest until now but it sounds interesting. Don’t know if I would want to take a trip through that forest or not but, what I do know, is that it sounds like it will make one heck of a thriller film. Makes me wonder if they are going to film there. I doubt it…especially if the superstition is true.

I love a good horror film and I haven’t seen a good one in a long time so I’m super excited about this. As stated, Natalie Dormer takes the starring role, David Goyer who wrote the “Dark Knight” trilogy and “Batman v Superman” will produce, Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca re-wrote the script, and Jason Zada will make his directorial debut. Fun fun!

If you are now putting this on a list of films to see, don’t fret, you can still check out Natalie in GoT season 5 and also in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in November where she takes on the role as Cressida….super excited about that as well!

I really hope you enjoyed this! What does everyone think? Excited about this film? Excited to see Natalie in something other than GoT? Further, you can check out the rest of the article HERE

What’s Coming for Margaery Tyrell is S5?


Filming is still going on for the upcoming season and from what we have heard, the women on the show have had some interesting scenes especially Ms. Lena Headey who just wrapped up her ‘walk of shame’ a week or so ago. However, now Natalie Dormer who portrays the mischievous Margaery Tyrell has her own interesting scenes to film.

As we all remember from S4, she had married the King but plans did not go accordingly and their marriage was never consummated…poor her. However, she has officially moved on to the nicer and much younger brother who is actually only 12 in the series (show not books).

Natalie Dormer spoke with E! Online and said:

Margaery is just trying to play the next, you know, round of cards with the ones she’s been dealt, so it’s a particularly awkward situation for her, and young Tommen as well, so she’s just trying to befriend the kid

This is very intriguing because I completely understand how this could be awkward and not just for the characters. Natalie Dormer is actually thirty-two years old where her young counterpart, Dean-Charles Chapman, is only seventeen. That is quite the age difference for the actors but if I hadn’t had looked that up, I would have never guessed Dormer was that age…she looks much younger. Wonder what her secret is. As far as that goes, in the article, Dormer does specify that it is awkward at times to get direction on how to go about filming these scenes because Chapman is much younger.

How do you think Margaery and Tommen will plan out? I’ve heard some spoilers as to what happens with them but I won’t ruin it in case those spoilers were wrong or you haven’t read the books. I don’t know, though, I wish Margaery would leave poor Tommen alone…he is much too young and kind BUT every King needs a Queen hahaha….guess we will all see in season 5.

Natalie Dormer & Lena Headey join the ‘Because I am a Girl’ Campaign

Natalie Dormer (who portrays Margaery Tyrell) and Lena Headey (who portrays Cersei Lannister) recently joined the ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign which is charity to stop violence against young girls.

According to PlanUK:

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

This campaign is further meant to eradicate atrocities such as forced child marriage, female genital mutilation, and sexual assault. These crimes happen all across the world and I, for one, am really happy that this is becoming recognized.
