13 Things You Didn't Know About Natalie Dormer

She's HOW old?!

Natalie Dormer Gif It might be hard to believe, but Game Of Thrones' Natalie Dormer has clocked in ten years on our screens already and what a glorious career it's been for her so far. Her debut as Victoria in the 2005 portrayal of Casanova, the story of Venice's biggest womaniser, catapulted her into Hollywood's limelight, which is stunning since her role was originally supposed to be much smaller. After seeing her on screen, the director expanded it significantly, and from there it's been an upward spiral. The majority of the roles she's taken on have had a recurring character theme of being fiercely strong and independent with an appetite for sexual pleasure and political gain. Somewhat inevitably, her ability in those sorts of roles saw her first cast in The Tudors and then in Game Of Thrones. She is a jigsaw piece who really fits those puzzles. With season five of George RR Martin's epic adaptation now in full swing, fans can expect to see a lot more of her as Margaery and Cersei's stories intertwine catastrophically. So now is the perfect time to look at some of the facts you probably didn't know about the British actress.

13. She's Vowed Off The Nudity

Though Margaery Tyrell will be in Game Of Thrones for the foreseeable future, Dormer has vowed to avoid nudity to focus on her career as an actress who has more to show than her nipples. The show will inevitably continue to be a raunch-fest though as whilst some fans are drawn in by the dragons and Jon Snow's lack of knowledge about life, others are more concerned about the fashion choices of some of the characters - or the lack of them.
