From The Tudors to Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer has queened her way across the small screen. And now she is ready for a cinematic second act…

You might expect an actress with the mantra ‘fear is a mind-killer’ tattooed on her wrist to lean towards the daring or reckless in her work and behaviour. Yet Natalie Dormer, the wearer of that tattoo, is exercising caution. ‘When it does come to an end,’ she says, avoiding any intimations about the fate of Margaery Tyrell, her thrice-crowned queen in Game of Thrones, ‘I will always be sad not to have those people in my life on a day-to-day basis. They become your family after six, seven, however many years.’

Dormer, 34, with her butterscotch hair, angular cheekbones and flawless silk jumpsuit, seems of a piece with the Beverly Hills hotel suite in which she’s installed (decorative scheme: money). The setting couldn’t be further from the dungeons and battlefields of the fantasy epic that is Thrones. But Hollywood is a mythical land with dragons of its own, and Dormer is winning here.

She has flown in from London to be named the Women In Film MaxMara Face of the Future at the 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards (past honourees include Rose Byrne and Emily Blunt). At tonight’s ceremony, she will accept her statuette in front of an audience of the most powerful people in the entertainment business.

For now, she is here, deliberating over every word to avoid giving away the fact that (major spoiler alert if you haven’t caught up yet) in the season-six finale, with 8.9 million people watching in the US alone, Tyrell and everyone with her in the Sept of Baelor – the Thrones equivalent of Westminster Abbey – will explode in an inferno of green wildfire. ‘For me, that’s the whole point of storytelling: that it reaches the third act,’ she continues. ‘That’s what I’m in it for. I’m really looking forward to the end, because I want to know who sits on that throne.’

Her death, like so many others on Game of Thrones, wasn’t exactly fair. Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) had all the wits necessary to survive the King’s Landing lion’s den. She was chosen as somebody’s queen, not once, nor twice, but three times. And after each occasion, she was denied a comfy rule by forces beyond her control. Margaery perished in Sunday night’s spectacular finale after becoming trapped on the High Sparrow’s losing team as Cersei Lannister made her explosive checkmate move. The outcome was the final chord in a recurring theme in Margaery’s life — she constantly found herself attached to powerful, yet doomed, men. Only this time, besides the High Sparrow, she couldn’t escape his deadly downfall.

EW spoke to Dormer about her final Thrones episode. The actress, who joined the series in its second season, has seen her feature film career bloom over the years, with roles in The Hunger Games franchise and Rush, among other projects. Here she gives her thoughts on Margaery’s fate, and most intriguingly, says her character could have beaten Cersei if she wasn’t tripped up by the High Sparrow’s mistakes.
