Natalie Dormer is a lot of things, but she is also, perhaps, the reigning queen of fandom-obsessery at the moment, what with her inclusion in not only The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (and next year, Part 2) and Game of Thrones. That’s a lot of very invested fans to navigate! But not even her cool British chick-ness can save her from the truth of the matter: all men must die. Particularly on Thrones, where the actress revealed that her fate is super-uncertain at the end of season five.
Chatting with Conan O’Brien on his eponymous show, Dormer revealed that the series is at a point where poor Margaery Tyrell’s fate is one big question mark, as it has reached as far as her storyline goes in the currently published books. (ha ha ha, remember those days when George R.R. Martin was all “there’s no WAY they’ll catch up to me!” Remember? Oh what naivete ruled our hearts and minds in those simpler times.)
And just because she’s so goddamn badass it hurts (seriously, teach me your ways, or at least how to pull off a partially shaved head, Natalie), the actress also spoke about training for The Hunger Games’ Mockingjay Part 1 and 2, which was apparently a piece of cake for her because she’s superwoman. I mean who else would be all “oh yeah training for a war in a movie was great and easy because I was also running a marathon at the time”? Way to remind us of our own physical failings, Dorms.
