Game of Thrones had a really large pool of actors. So much so that even the most ardent of fans would struggle to name all of them. However, Natalie Dormer was somebody whom fans adored on the show. She played a grey character of Margaery Tyrell on the show and impressed everyone with her range of acting. However, like many other adored characters on the show, her character too came to an end and left the void on the show. Now we have come to know about the real reason for her departure from the show. Read on!
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Dormer spoke about her final fate on the show. When asked about the dreaded phone call from the makers, she replied:
“I preempted the phone call because in true Natalie Dormer-style I tried to fit a million projects into a single year. I requested [while making season 5 that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] release me from working on the show earlier than usual so I could do another project, and they ended up phoning me — and that was The Call.”
However, Dormer couldn’t actually go ahead with her plan. She said:
“But I got it six months ahead of normal. They were like, “We weren’t going to tell you this for a few more months, but we’re not going to release you now, so you can’t do that job you really want to do and we’re really sorry about that. But on the bright side, we are going to release you proper in the not-so-distant future.” It was good news, bad news — no you can’t do this, but don’t worry, you’re going to have lots more opportunities very soon.”
Well, let’s just say it was our pleasure to see her perform. Dormer has actually done quite well for herself since her departure from Thrones. She has opened a production house of her own called Dog Rose Productions and has some great work lined up. She will also be seen soon in her next assignment Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. It is going to premiere on 26th April 2020.

Game of Thrones was a huge show. It comprised many characters and each of those characters had a significance of their own. Even the actors that were part of the show belonged to different diversity and were proud to represent their origin. Nathalie Emmanuel who played the character of Missandei too felt that she was part of a change and was thankful for the show.
As per The Sun, Emmanuel in her recent interview felt grateful towards the show for pulling her out of the slump.
“That job changed my life. I really am grateful for that time, because it pulled me out of a slump. Suddenly, I was being thrown onto these big stages and I had to woman up to it.”
She felt proud to represent a character that had undergone so much in her life. She said:
“I had the opportunity to shape a person who had been through unimaginable things and really tell her story.”
She also felt that a strong reaction from all quarters towards her death was an important change.
“It sparked such necessary conversation around diversity and inclusion. I’m used to there being only one role for the ‘brown person’, but when you’ve got a show that has so many eyes on it, you realize she represented so many people. When you kill the only woman of color, there’s going to be a huge reaction.”
She said she was hopeful that shows and movies become more representative of the real-life world.
“Hopefully there can be a discussion about representation. And, when shows of that scale are made again, that the cast looks like the world we live in.”
Emmanuel had spoken about the lack of diversity in Thrones earlier as well. She has continued that discussion and its refreshing to see an actor trying to bring about the change in the world in her own way.

As per Winter Is Coming, various Danish media houses recently claimed that Coster-Waldau is dead and shocked the fans across the globe. Coster-Waldau then took to his Instagram and rubbished the rumors floating around. He said:
“Fake news, we hear about it all the time, Now, in Denmark, apparently there’s a story that’s been floating around various websites. It looked like a news story, and the news was that I had died…I’m fine, but what the fu…I mean, c’mon…I get that you wanna sell your shit, but that’s just…So, to you who did this, I know you don’t care, but fuck you.”
Well, we don’t blame Waldau for his passionate proof of being alive. Media houses around the globe need to be more responsible and deserve the blame for spreading such vile news.
