Natalie Dormer will be seen as Cressida in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 and has just been named as one of Los Angeles Times’ “Faces to Watch in 2014.”
Audiences familiar with Natalie Dormer are probably accustomed to seeing her dressed up in royal garb, from the flowing gowns of Anne Boleyn on the Showtime series ”The Tudors” to the ornate dresses of would-be queen Margaery Tyrell on HBO’s ”Game of Thrones.” Next November, the 31-year-old British actress will show a different side as Cressida, the intrepid documentary filmmaker and revolutionary in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, the first installment of the series’ two-part finale.
“It’s such a departure for me,” Dormer said, speaking on the telephone from Britain. “At the moment, people think of me in long skirts, with long brunet hair, so [it's a change] to be running around in combat trousers and flat army boots.”
A role in the blockbuster series, which Dormer will reprise for “Part 2″ in 2015, could spell a new level of fame for the actress, who in addition to “Game of Thrones” this year appeared in the Formula 1 racing drama “Rush” and the Ridley Scott thriller ”The Counselor.”She has also completed work on “Posh,” director Lone Scherfig’s adaptation of the Laura Wade play about an elite social club atOxford University, as well as the indie dramas “Fencewalker” and “A Long Way From Home.”
