Natalie Dormer says she got the “perfect length of time” on Game of Thrones




Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones is on a roll these days. After getting the rave reviews for her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels she is riding high on success. After the premiere of her new show, she got some time to reflect on her journey so far and we are excited to bring those reflections to you. Read on to find out more!

Dormer recently spoke to Variety and talked candidly about her journey in Game of Thrones. In many ways, Game of Thrones was the gamechanger for Dormer and she was aware of it. She was in the series for five seasons and showcased her talent. Speaking about her infamous death she said:

“I was ever so grateful that I was with Jonathan [Pryce who played the High Sparrow]. To have such a partner for my last scene was really a gift.”


She was also very understanding of the kind of challenge the showrunners had on their hands. She said:

“But I think Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff] had an almost impossible task in wrapping up the show. And by the very nature of the sheer quantity of storylines and characters, they had to start wrapping up around Season 6, which they did with the Tyrells and other beloved characters. It was almost going to be the impossible task, I think, regardless of what they had done, to satisfy the third act for everyone in the time that they had.”

She also reflected fondly on her journey and had no complaints at all from the makers. She believed that she was in the show for the perfect duration and it was her golden ticket.

“I got the golden ticket, the perfect length of time. I watched Season 1 as a fan, came in the second season, did a good solid five years just as the show had this incredible explosion, and then I got out in time to watch the end and sit on the couch again.” 

Well, Dormer didn’t let her guard down at all after the success of Thrones. Recently she took her fans through behind the scenes video of Penny Dreadful and it was amazing to see the effort.

Well, if you have watched the show, let us know your reviews in the comments below!

Game of Thrones amassed one of the highest viewership numbers any show has seen in the past decade. The final season of the series was one of the most awaited programs of 2019. The episode ‘The Long Night’ in which Arya Stark slays the Night King had a viewership of 17.8 million!

It was a shocking turn of events when Arya stabs the Night King, ending his reign of terror forever. However, many of the fans desired for a different way of killing the Night King. A death by the hands of the show’s other protagonist Jon Snow.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Maisie Williams, who played the role of Arya Stark, revealed the original plans for the death of Night King. Everyone, including Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow, believed he would be the one killing the villain. It turns out, the showrunners always had Arya Stark in their mind.

[Kit Harington] expected it to go [Jon Snow’s] way, too, and he even said, ‘It was going to go that way. Someone told me in season three that I was going to kill The Night King,’” Williams shares. “And then, he read the script, and it was Arya the whole time. Yeah, I think it would’ve been too obvious. I’m glad that it was Arya, honestly. I think I had the best storyline of the final season.”

The death of the Night King in the third episode of season 8 was indeed satisfying. Most of the fans hoped it would be Jon Snow because he had the best experience fighting against the White Walkers (someone else was killed by Jon Snow). Arya landing the killing blow was surprising for all the fans worldwide.

Social media has been a part of our lives ever since we’ve had access to Internet. It is a great way of building public image, expressing your thoughts and let others know what you’re doing. Maintaining a positive image is no joke. Especially when you’re as famous as Game of Thrones’ actress Maisie Williams.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Maisie revealed the problems she had to face on her rise to fame as Arya Stark. Game of Thrones was a turning point in her life. It brought her fame and fortune one can only dream of. When you’re that famous, you’re constantly being judged, whether you are on or off screen.


I was always curious but I didn’t know how to represent myself.” She said, “I was very fearful of being judged and I was too scared to express myself. I have learnt to embrace who I am and have my own opinions and style myself the way that makes me feel good and proud.”

Williams went on to explain about her struggles with experimenting on her style as she grew up. Another creative outlet she is still figuring out is social media. She said, “When I was a teenager, social media was exciting and new and you could invent yourself online. I wanted to share everything like my friends did. Then obviously I got a much larger following, so there was pressure to not say anything stupid.”

Maisie has been coping with online noise from both fans and critics alike, since the tender age of 14. She prefers to learn and be a better person, rather than talk about it on social media. She also debuted on stage with the play I and You.

There comes a time in everyone’s life when you have to face rejection. It becomes even more difficult if you have been succeeding in the same field earlier. Accepting it without getting discouraged is an important skill not everyone has. Even accomplished actors like Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams find it difficult to deal with.

Maisie Williams achieved stardom as Arya Stark at a very young age of 12. It was only her second audition. After playing the role for 9 years, she was nervous about auditioning again. She realized that she needed to put herself out there if she wanted to grasp new opportunities.

It is almost harder because I had never been told no,” she said in an interview with The Telegraph. “The second thing that I ever auditioned for was Game of Thrones, and that launched my career. There’s always competition, it doesn’t matter how much you’ve done, you will always lose out on roles. The industry is built upon rejection.”

Having learned the bitter truth about the film industry, she added, “I’m definitely learning that now – how to overcome the rejection and not see it as a personal thing. But learning to be told no is really difficult as someone who’s an established actor. No one’s got time for you when you’re like, ‘Oh I didn’t get the part in this thing.’ They’re like, ‘You just came off the most successful TV show of the decade, can you hang on a minute?’”

The 23-year-old actress is bound to reach for the stars if she keeps her positivity alive. Williams is learning to adapt to the industry, going after roles that challenge her. She recently starred in a thriller movie “The Owners”.
