Executive producer of Elementary, Rob Doherty has let slip that Natalie is currently working on a film that she is writing and producing!
EW.Com – Doherty has asked Natalie Dormer to return to the show. Dormer played fan-favorite Moriarty, the former lover and nemesis to Sherlock, who once believed she was dead. Of course, the actress is quite busy, with both Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games to handle, as well as a film she’s writing and producing, according to Doherty, which is why they haven’t locked down Dormer for a future episode but hopes to have her return. “Natalie has proven to be as elusive as Moriarty,” Doherty joked. “Actually, we had the opportunity to talk a few weeks ago, to discuss a few possible scenarios for a return… but it presents obviously some logistical problems for us. But we’ll stay in touch and see what we can cook up.” Added Miller: “We shoot this show all year anyway, so when [Dormer] stops working, we’ll still be working.” Hey, there’s still hope!
The BBC have released the first look at Natalie in The Scandalous Lady W as Lady Seymour Worsley!
The BBC has today released the first promotional picture of the up and coming period drama, The Scandalous Lady W. The film is based on the life of Lady Seymour Worsley played by Natalie Dormer a woman who dared to leave her husband and elope with his best friend. Produced by Wall to Wall Media and directed by Sheree Folkson for BBC Two, the untold true story of Lady Worsley is brought to life by award-winning writer David Eldridge.
Eldridge based his screenplay on author Hallie Rubenhold’s book ‘Lady Worsley’s Whim’. The book is inspired by the full length oil painting of Lady Worsley that hangs in Harewood House in Yorkshire. She is depicted wearing a bright red riding habit.
Natalie Dormer plays Seymour Worsley, a passionate, courageous woman at the centre of a very public trial brought by her powerful husband Sir Richard Worsley, played by Shaun Evans (Endeavour, The Lost Weekend). As the drama unfolds, a woman’s worth and material value as one of her husband’s possessions are called into question. When Lady Worsley decides to leave her troubled marriage and elope with Captain George Bisset, played by Aneurin Barnard (Cilla, The White Queen), the truth doesn’t stay behind closed doors for long.
The Radio Times have released a new photoshoot of Natalie along with a quick video run down of her CV!
