Natalie Dormer On 'Awkward' Game Of Thrones Scene
Actress who plays Margaery Tyrell reveals why she asked series makers to rethink flirtatious scene…
Natalie Dormer has spilled the beans on what it’s like to play power-hungry Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones.
Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, the 32-year-old actress admitted that one particular scene was very ‘awkward’ for her.
The scene in question is where Margaery makes flirtatious advances towards young Tommen Baratheon, who suddenly finds himself next in line for the throne.
Discussing her on-screen encounter with Dean-Charles Chapman, who plays Tommen, she said: "DC, as I affectionately call him, Dean Charles, was 16 at the time.
"It was very awkward for me, I had a whole conversation about how that scene was written, I kind of altered how that scene was written."
She added: "It wasn't as ambiguous and I was like 'we need to talk about this' and for a woman just to throw her sensuality, her sexuality at a young male is just so on the nose and so obvious and the last thing Margaery Tyrell is is obvious, she's far more skilled than that."
Asked about her character, she said: "I think she'd make a brilliant psychotherapist. I have this theory that she'd be the best therapist ever."
Dornan recently shaved off her hair on one side of her head for her role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, in which she plays Capitol film maker Cressida.
The Jonathan Ross Show airs on Saturday, 8 November at 9.45pm on ITV.
