We think of Natalie Dormer as fearless. She certainly is on-screen, whether playing master manipulator Margaery Tyrell (Game of Thrones), Irene Adler (Elementary), Anne Boleyn (The Tudors), or the mysterious blonde who pops up for key scenes opposite Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz in The Counselor. (“That’s a master class in acting, seeing Javier Bardem relay that story,” she says of Diaz’s now infamous encounter with a car windshield. “It seems so perverse and so funny, but it’s actually a very clever, profound, deep psychological insight into what his character’s feeling at that particular time, especially when he ends the story by saying, ‘Maybe I’m scared.’”)
But when it’s time for Dormer to sit in the audience, there’s at least one kind of movie that turns her into a self-proclaimed coward. We found that out and more when she took EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below.
Dormer, who was recently crowned Best Supporting Actress for her work on Game of Thrones in the 2013 EWwys, EW.com’s reader-voted awards for the Emmy snubbed, also formally accepted that honor. Proof below.
We had about as much luck getting GoT spoilers out of her as we did intel on her role as Cressida in the two installments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, a franchise she says takes secrecy to a whole other level. “There might be a big special occasion with a white dress involved. There might be,” she says of Thrones’ fourth season. “The day every girl dreams of – marrying Joffrey Baratheon.”
