Natalie Dormer on Her Character in ‘Game of Thrones’

gameofthrones_s3_dormergleeson_652_article_story_main Natalie Dormer, British actress who plays Margaery Tyrell in HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, talked about Margaery in an interview for HitFix. “I think Margaery is a more sincere girl than maybe the audience would give her credit for to begin with and what we’ve seen of her so far. That’s how I’m playing her, because it’s more interesting as an actor to play a more ambiguous line between sincerity and genuine affection and positive personality features,” the actress said.

Dormer also commented on the differences between Margaery and Cersei:  “I think the big difference between the Tyrells and the Lannisters is that the Tyrells are a matriarch family. The Tyrells are run by women. Olenna is completely in charge of that family. The Lannisters are run by Tywin Lannister. It’s a very virile, very masculine-dominated Alpha Male family. And Cersei, she feels a bit trapped and dominated and wishes she could have been a man so that she could get on the battlefield and fight. She feels suppressed by her gender. The interesting thing about Margaery is that she’s more cut from the cloth as a protegee of her grandmother, so she knows what it’s like for a woman to be in charge.”
