Life throws many challenges at us. Sometimes they can be too much to bear at one time but it is those challenges that make us who we become later in life. Natalie Dormer a.k.a. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones too has had a life full of challenges and she recently talked about in an interview. Read on to find out more!

Buoyed by her recently released Penny Dreadful: City of Angels where she plays a demon, Dormer recently spoke to The Mirror. She reflected on her journey all the way from her school life where she was bullied to becoming a confident actress. She also spoke about why she craves for strong roles and their impact on her.

“I’m fascinated by powerful women who transform their strength into sensuality. I’m very shy in real life and I think there’s a side of me that hopes that by taking on these roles, I can become a great seductress. But I also want to be part of stories that show how women can lead interesting, engaging lives apart from their romantic relationships.”

She made it a point to not back down ever since she was bullied in the school. She said:

“I suffered a lot of bullying in school and, ever since, I’ve made it a point not to back down and to rise up to every situation and become a stronger person. That’s a key aspect of my personality and how I try to live. I needed to work on my confidence level in my 20s until I became more forceful.”

She also made a parallel between the world of 1930’s Los Angeles shown in her latest series to the current world.

“There’s been an incredible political polarization that has been going on in recent years – the demonization of the other, the resurgence of nationalism, pointing the finger at others, and this nasty brand of identity politics. There are very uncomfortable parallels between the state of things today and the kind of things happening in the mid-to-late 1930s and the lead-up to the Second World War.”

She also revealed that she almost made it to the Cambridge university but enrolled herself into a drama school instead. She was also pretty close to her grandfather who in some ways defined her future by supporting her creative juices.

From being bullied to being part of an epic saga like Game of Thrones and Hunger Games, Dormer has truly come a long way. We truly admire her for that.

It is always fun to see our favourite actors play out radically different roles. Iain Glenn, who played the honourable and heroic Ser Jorah Mormont, was seen playing a not-so-heroic role in The Racer.

Directed by Kieron J Walsh, the movie circles around a series of scandals that took place at the 1998 Tour de France. The film was the opening film for the Cork International Film Festival. Though fictional, The Racer shows the dangerous lengths teams will go to for a competitive edge. Iain Glen plays the team’s Mr Fixit with the syringes and vials.

Iain Glenn talked to the Irish Examiner about the movie, “I studied documentaries and a couple of films just to get to know the world it occupied. What drew me to the script was it didn’t hold back its punches. I thought it was a very frank and honest, quite a wry, insightful look at a particularly bad period for drug abuse within the sport.”

He continued, “That tour became known as the Tour de Drugs because of the amount of drugs that were going down at the time. The people within the team and my character, certainly within the context of the film, didn’t have any great qualms about it – everyone was doing it and we were doing it as well. That was the norm. It’s ironic to think that (Lance) Armstrong was about to enjoy his great stretch as being the world-leading cyclist and he won so many tours in a row and this was prior to that. During Armstrong’s time, everyone thought the sport had got its act together a bit more.”

Earlier, Kit Harington was seen playing a shady role in Criminals Season 2. What do you think about the movie? Tell us in the comments below!

The journey of life is an inexplicable mystery. No one knows what one might face in future. The only thing we can be sure of is making memories. These memories stay alive even after they are gone. The year 2020 proved to be a Red Wedding for people all around the world. Earth lost some of it’s brightest stars in the past year, including Game of ThronesDiana Rigg.

Diana Rigg, famous for her role Olenna Tyrell, was a revered figure in the entertainment industry. She was a force to reckon with. Her dominating presence brought directors to their knees. She delivered such a fabulous performance, the audience was left speechless.

Rigg was exceptional as the Queen of Thorns. The veteran actress was also famous for being witty and fun-loving on set. In James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon, producer and writer Dave Hill recalls working with Rigg. Rigg was visiting the brothel owned by Littlefinger, played by Aidan Gillen.

We were preparing for a scene where Olenna meets Littlefinger at the brothel,” Hill said. “And Dame Diana Rigg looked around and went, ‘Shouldn’t there be more sex toys? Shouldn’t there be sheepskin condoms scattered about?’

I’m all, ‘You’re absolutely correct, Dame Diana!’ We appreciated her knowledge of ancient sexual devices.”

The highly talented actress was also a motherly figure to the cast and crew. They remembered her on social media when she passed away. Talk to us in the comments below, and tell us how you miss the revered actress!

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”- A Shakespearean phrase perfectly sums up the world as a theatre. Game of Thrones stars, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand), shared their theatre experience with Vogue.

Vogue presented the Game of Thrones alums with a host of questions. Here’s how they responded:

Vogue: What do you love the most about        theatre?  

Emilia: Oh my goodness! What I love most about going to the theatre… Never thought about it before, it’s the most beautiful experience.

Indira: It’s escape isn’t it?

Vogue: What is your most memorable moment in a theatre?  

Emilia: I was doing Holly GoLightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and there was a stupid scene. I was in a bath and this one particular night I’m butt-naked, slippery from being in the bath. I’m running and I just psssssh (making slipping and landing on butt gesture with hands). I was feeling like I had broken something and then the guys in the flies just being like- “Oh! You alright sweetie?”

Indira: I mean my very first performance. When I was 5 at school and I was angel Gabriel.

Vogue: What is your top tip for learning lines?  

Emilia: When I’m just by myself I do it to my cooker, my oven or I record myself or just badger friends.

Indira: My top tip for learning lines… (f*****g hate learning lines) I mean like I need tips myself. I think it’s about repetition.

Vogue: Sum up performing in theatre in 3 words.  

Emilia: Um raw, electric and home.

Indira: One word is never enough is it, um journalized, communication, fear.

Both the stars have earlier worked together in the theatre. Tell us what you think of theatre in the comments below!
