Over the past few years we have seen more and more Hollywood stars begin to work on some very impressive television shows rather than just focusing on movies, as the quality of writing for television has become so much stronger. One star who loves working on television shows, rather than working on movies, is actress Natalie Dormer.
Most of you will probably best know Natalie Dormer from her role as Margaery in the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, while she also plays the role of Cressida in the upcoming movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. Natalie says that she prefers working on television as they tend to offer better roles.
Dormer recently explained, "The best female roles are in television at the moment. Katniss Everdeen — as popular as she is — is an anomaly. She really is. Where television is fantastic — and is way ahead of film — is it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women so much."
She added, "Male writers — and I say this with all love and respect — often want to make a woman either the angel or the whore, make her the witch, or put her on the pedestal. When people ask me about Margaery, I say they’re not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to be practical and politically savvy and not be a good person. You can be a good human being and just be shrewd."
Fans will continue to see Natalie Dormer as Margaery in Game of Thrones season five, which will air on HBO next year. Meanwhile, she will appear on the big screen as Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, which opens on November 21 in both the US and the UK.
