Natalie Dormer born 11 February 1982 is an English actress. She is best known for her roles as Anne Boleyn on the Showtime series The Tudors (2007-10), as Margaery Tyrell on the HBO series Game of Thrones (2012-present), Irene Adler on the CBS series Elementary (2013-15), and as Cressida in the science-fiction adventure films The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and Part 2 (2015). She has been nominated for Best Performance at the Gemini Awards for her work in The Tudors. She has also been nominated for a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for her performance in Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones mainstay Natalie Dormer had a royal reputation before she ever became a member of House Tyrell. Her prior role on The Tudors as Anne Boleyn — the short-lived 16th-century Queen of England — gained her widespread acclaim. And if dystopian sci-fi is more your thing, you know her as Cressida from The Hunger Games. This year, she’s set to star in too-real-for-fiction thriller Patient Zero, battling a mutant strain of rabies threatening humanity’s existence. Which sounds only a little less terrifying than being married to Joffrey.
