Early Life

Natalie Dormer was born in Reading, Berkshire, and attended Chiltern Edge Secondary School, before moving to Reading Blue Coat School, an independent boys' school that admits girls in the sixth form. She grew up with her stepfather, mother, sister Samantha and brother Mark. She suffered from bullying problems during her childhood, and it's something that "still to this day she can't place why." At school, Natalie was head-girl, a straight-A student and vice-captain of the school netball team. She also got to travel the globe with her school's public speaking team.

During her school years she trained in dance at the Allenova School of Dancing. Natalie Dormer describes herself as the 'academic hopeful' of the family and was offered a place to study history at Cambridge, but misread one of the questions that was in her history A-Level and thus was not able to get the A Grade she needed to attend. She decided she would audition for drama schools and decided to train at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. She is also a member of the London Fencing Academy.

A self-proclaimed poker lover, Natalie Dormer took part in the 2008 PartyPoker.com Women's World Open in London, where she came in second to Emma Kennedy in the Celebrity Heat. Natalie Dormer has stated that Cate Blanchett has been an influence in her career as an actress. On the subject of supernatural beliefs, she was quoted as saying: "I've got an open mind. I say I'm an atheist but I wouldn't mind being visited by a ghost.

Career

Six months after graduating from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, Natalie Dormer auditioned and won the role of Victoria in Casanova with Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller. This was her film debut and it was released in 2005. The director, Lasse Hallstrom, was so impressed with Natalie Dormer's comedic timing that he had the script writer expand her part. On the strength of her audition for the role and her performance, she secured a three-film deal with Disney Touchstone which was never exercised.

In 2005, Natalie Dormer also had a bit part in Distant Shores playing that of a Mobile Woman. After the filiming of Casanova, Natalie Dormer was out of work for nine months and Dormer says that 'It was the best lesson I could have had in the first 12 months of my career.' In 2006, Dormer guest-starred in an episode of Rebus entitled "The Falls", playing the character Phillippa Balfour.

In 2007 and 2008 she played Anne Boleyn in the first two seasons of The Tudors, for which she received positive reviews. Natalie Dormer's relative was Jane Dormer, a lady in waiting to Mary I. Jane Dormer's memoirs contain some evidence on Boleyn's actual age, which is still a source of much academic dispute.

In 2008 she played Moira Nicholson in Miss Marple: Why Didn't They Ask Evans? and appears in a number of forthcoming films: Fence Walker, Flying Lessons and City of Life. Natalie Dormer's Marple appearance aired in the US in the summer of 2009 as part of PBS' Masterpiece Mystery anthology series.

In March 2010 she made her stage debut at the Young Vic theatre in London as Mizi in the play Sweet Nothings. After six months of playing Mizi, Natalie Dormer went on to film some new roles including Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in Madonna's film W.E., Private Lorraine in Captain America: The First Avenger and Niamh Cranitch in the BBC court drama, Silk, before going onto her next stage role of Pat in .45 at Hampstead Theatre in the November of 2010.

Natalie Dormer returned as Anne Boleyn in a dream sequence to the Tudors for the fourth and final season in mid 2010. This was confirmed when the first promotional picture of the season showed Anne (along with King Henry VIII, Katherine of Aragon, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Katherine Howard and Katherine Parr) on the cover.

In June 2010, Natalie Dormer was cast in the lead role for the movie adaption of the Peter Straub novel Shadowland. In June 2011, she joined the cast of the HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones as the noblewoman Margaery Tyrell.
