«I like to run and swim in the Ocean», says Natalie Dormer with a wide shining smile when asked what she enjoys doing to relax. This was her most intense year in her career. And if by “relaxing” she took part to the London marathon, completing it in less than four hours, and not many can make it, before that she was in the saga Hunger Games and also her role as queen Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, who shaked this last season.
«Running taught me to work harder for my goals and not to lose on them. I can also run for training for several hours. It’s like a meditation status, and I focus a lot on myself. Once it’s over, I feel ready for the challenge». It’s no surprise that this british actress of 34 was given with the Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award, the award that Italian maison dedicates each year to the most promising of the moment. An award that in the past went to actress like Kate Mara, Emily Blunt, Rose Byrne, Zoe Saldana and Katie Holmes.
Natalie Dormer is that typical blonde with the right face for all those epic movies and in costume: «I am fascinated by women in power, those characters like Anne Boleyn in The Tudors, who make of their strength something sensual. I am very different from this, I’m shy». Who knows that by accepting all these roles I won’t become myself a seductress». Dormer is also that typical British beauty, who fits in thriller and horror movies, as it shows in The Forest: «I’m so scared, though. During my youth time at parties where you watch scary movies, I was the one hiding in my sleeping bag. It’s still hard to watch again some scenes for me, even if I’m the protagonist».

“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.”
