English actress Natalie Dormer is best known for playing beguiling femme fatales as astute as they are alluring—currently as Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones, formerly as Irene Adler on Elementary and Anne Boleyn on The Tudors, as well as "The Blonde" who seduces Brad Pitt in The Counselor. “I love those women that I play that have sexual power," Dormer told The Daily Beast in an interview published today. "But I’m trying to step away from it for me, and for my artistic growth. It’s also more who I am. I’m not that woman." And »

London - This summer, Natalie Dormer was part of the "Women Who Kick-Ass" panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, during which she called roles like Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss an "anomaly" in male-dominated blockbuster plotlines. When HitFix caught up with the "Game of Thrones" actress during "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" press day in London this month, Dormer went into more detail on female and feminism trends in Hollywood. "There's a wave coming. The swell has started," she said. "I'm not much interested in waving the 'girl power' flag, I'm more interested in feminism meaning equality." In the dystopian future of "The Hunger Games" franchise, there's much more of the sense that men and women share equal rights -- in that some members of society don't have any at all, or that the heroes and the villains are male and female in seemingly equal measure, with Katness up front. »

Some people may not know the name Natalie Dormer yet, but unless those people avoid screens at all costs (or don’t watch interesting things), they know who she is. She’s been Moriarty on Elementary, and has one of the coolest roles on Game of Thrones. She was Anne Boleyn on The Tudors, and, long story short, she’s everywhere at the moment. She’s also in a little number coming your way soon, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (she’s in Part 2 as well).
In the clip above you can catch her introducing her team.
She recently grabbed attention for shaving half her head, which she talks about with Cosmo in their full interview (see a couple of snippets below), and now, as she hits as Cressida, you’re going to be hearing her name a lot. She goes futuristic in her shoot for Cosmo, and her »

From the reflections of two onscreen brothers, and the new faces of sea series 2 creator, writer and producer Michael Hirst reflects on his passion for history and bringing the Vikings to life for a modern audience…
Paul Risker: The opening gambit would be history – what draws you to it? Clearly you are a fan and something of a scholar… Would you say scholar is the correct term?
Michael Hirst: No I wouldn’t. I went to three universities. The first was The London School of Economics where I went to study history, but I walked out on that, and »

Fighting the good fight takes a gnarly turn in the series premiere of Constantine, NBC’s new supernatural drama based on the DC Comic Hellblazer. After watching Friday night’s premiere, are you willing to stand with the title character against the forces of evil?
We want to hear your thoughts on the episode, but first, a brief recap:
We first meet John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) as he’s willingly being prepped for electroshock therapy at a psychiatric treatment facility in England. “In my line of work, there are days you just need to forget,” he tells us via voiceover. »
John Constantine‘s business cards read “Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts” — and all three of those vocations get a workout in NBC’s new drama based on the popular DC Comics character.
After decades in the Hellblazer comics and one ill-fated run at the big screen, Constantine makes his TV debut Friday (10/9c). Welsh actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, The Tudors) plays the trenchcoated demon whisperer, a tortured con man who’d prefer to abandon his occult work but feels compelled to help those who need him most.
