Natalie Dormer - The Tudors And Game Of Thrones
Natalie Dormer shot to fame playing Anne Boleyn in The Tudors which first aired on Showtime. She brought such fierceness to the role of Boleyn that one couldn't imagine any one else playing the ill fated queen. She made the viewers feel, which is something a lot of actors are unable to do. Whether you loved her character or hated her she is completely unforgettable.
Dormer was born in Reading, Berkshire on February 11, 1982. She was a straight A student and captain of her schools netball team. She also traveled with her schools public speaking team. She trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
In 2005, 6 months after graduating, Natalie Dormer won the role of Victoria in Cassanova. The film also starred Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller. The director was so impressed by Dormer that he expanded her part.
After Cassanova Dormer had a few bit parts but not anything major until she was cast as Queen Anne Boleyn in The Tudors, in 2007. She was highly praised by critics for her role. She starred in the first two seasons of the show and returned in 2010 to film a dream sequence.
After The Tudors Natalie starred in many movies but her greatest role, since The Tudors, was to be cast as Margaery Tyrell in the Game Of Thrones.
Natalie Dormer has also been cast to play Cressida in the Hunger Games. Cressida is a filmmaker who follows Katniss Everdeen in an attempt to capture her efforts to overthrow the Capital government.
In whatever role Dormer plays, she gives it her all. She is a perfectionist who nails every part she encounters. I can't wait to see more from this rising star.
