British beauty Natalie Dormer is everywhere these days. She’s co-starring in the new film The Counselor, where she gets to flirt with a dangerous Brad Pitt, she’s the duplicitous Irene Adler (aka Moriarty) on CBS’ Elementary, she plays the scheming seductress Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones and she was on VH1’s own Big Morning Buzz Live this morning.
She may have fed some lies about Mockingjay on Big Morning Buzz Live, but she spilled to VH1.com what Hunger Games fans will most definitely have to look forward to when she appears as Cressida in the upcoming Mockingjay films.
Dormer has made a name for herself played sharp and savvy femme fatales in projects like The Tudors, Game of Thrones and Rush, but the actress is excited to expand her range when she plays the tough and intrepid documentarian Cressida in the Mockingjay films.
“I get to wear pants and flat shoes!” she laughed. “No, it’s just fun to be, you know, she’s a serious professional whose joined the rebellion cause. Cressida is meant to be an incredibly talented documentary film director who was following Katniss around. I’m just really excited about her professional skill; she’s joined the rebellion out of a place called conviction, which is very interesting to me.”
Another interesting thing about Cressida is her appearance. When Katniss first meets the filmmaker she’s described as having “a shaved head tattooed with green vines.”
Dormer might have showed up on Big Morning Buzz Live with flowing blonde locks, but we had to ask if she was pulling a “Karen Gillan” on us. At Comic-Con, Gillan stunned everyone when she revealed that her hair was a wig and that she had actually shaved her long red hair to play Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Dormer revealed, “I haven’t shaved off all my head of hair off, no.” However, before fans get in a tizzy, she did remark that her look is “definitely an interesting interpretation of the reference in the book. I would like to think that people won’t be disappointed with the choices that we made.”
