I just love stories and story telling. I think prepping to play a real person is much different from playing a fictional character and so far you feel a responsibility towards whom the real historical character was, but your text is your bible. Your writer is your authority. So, know your history, but know that you are not making a historical documentary, you’re making a piece of drama. - Natalie Dormer
