Natalie Dormer finds it difficult to watch Game of Thones

Game of Thrones season six was bigger and grander than the previous seasons and with lot of action and violence. The showrunners had made an announcement about how some major changes would be made for season six since fans had been complaining about the 5th season. Natalie Dormer, who played Margarey Tyrell on the show addressed these claims and said that the show will basically glorify violence more in the upcoming seasons.

The character of Margarey has been a controversial character and one of the most talked about scenes was where she seduces Tommen, the twelve year old king, to stay on the throne.  She recently spoke about the horror of human nature and how she is not very comfortable witnessing all of it.

In an interview with Sunday Times, she said, “All I know is that I turn on the news and it’s covering a boy drowning off the coast, or children being shown beheading videos. The horror of human nature is prevalent in our world, and I appreciate that some people want to turn on the telly for escapism – but if that’s what you want, don’t watch Game of Thrones.

Natalie has been a successful actress in Hollywood and rose to fame by playing the character of Anne Boleyn in The Tudors. She also speaks out about misogynistic characters on the show without a tinge of hesitation. As much as she is aware of all the controversy regarding the show and her scenes, she also believes that she has no power to resist doing those kind of controversial scenes.

She said, “I find parts of the show difficult to watch, but I don’t think we do young people any favours by sheltering them. You sign on the dotted line, give them seven years and don’t get to alter the writing. An actor is a conduit to a writer. The message comes from the writing. I can’t – as Natalie – defend everything Margaery does, as that’s not my job.
