New ‘The Australian‘ interview has been published today. Natalie talks about her latest projects: Game of Thrones, Mockingjay Part 2 and The Forest.

Almost an hour into lunch at a frantic restaurant in London, Natalie Dormer and I finally talk about her latest film. It might have passed unmentioned, as the actress had spent three hours larking about for our photographer, and talking time felt equally restless and rambling. And such was the back and forth about Game of Thrones , the show for which she is best known, and its many pros and cons that her upcoming film, The Forest, was lost in the woods. It’s fine, as generic horrors go, but won’t be what she is, or wants to be, remembered for.

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 confirmed that The Scandalous Lady W will air next month on August 20th on BBC 2.

Radio Times – Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer recently decided to say no to corsets – but changed her mind when she read the script for her latest project The Scandalous Lady W, a BBC2 period drama in which she plays an adulterous society woman.

“I had sworn that I wasn’t going to get back into a corset for a while because I was fed up,” the Hunger Games and Tudors actress revealed at a screening of the 90-minute film in London today.

“Eighteen months ago I was Natalie Dormer always in a corset. But it had to be a strong story to warrant me wanting to get back into a corset.”

Very exciting new project news this morning coming from The Telegraph. I can’t wait for this!

It was the tale that scandalised 18th-century high society, featuring an outrageous court case, one passionate woman, and love affairs galore.

Now, the BBC is to broadcast the true story of Lady Seymour Worsley for the first time, bringing the audacious details of the “woman in red” to life on screen.

Natalie Dormer, star of Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games, is to take the part of Lady Worsley, the wife whose very virtue was put on trial in a 1782 court case that shocked the country.

Described as “passionate and courageous”, she had chosen to leave her husband, Sir Richard Worsley, to elope with his best friend Captain George Bisset.

The affair went on to be played out in scandalous details in the courts after Sir Richard brought a £20,000 case against his former friend for defiling his “possession”: his wife.
