“Work is still the biggest challenge. If you pick the right role, you’re forced to grow. You have to raise the bar a bit higher every time. That’s still true of Game of Thrones, even though I’ve been playing the part for five years. The show’s creators uproot your character every season, throwing you into a brand-new scenario. ”

No, sir Thro’ every change I went
But ne'er could find to keep content
All different, those poor garbage were
Some fat, some lean, some
brown, some fair

Had you seen me on his breast reclined
Lips glued to lips and limbs
with limbs entwined

With oft repeated acts of dalliance spent
My lust quite sated my heart content

Sir Richard Worse-than-sly
Cursed the charms that gave
him once a virgin to his arms

But, sir, those charms
you cannot justly blame

For were’t not THOU the
author of thy shame?


We shot two or three days in the Sept. Jonathan Pryce is a lot of fun; I’ve enjoyed working with him this season. I was also with Finn Jones, who plays Loras, all that time. It was very moving and fitting that Finn and I should be together for those last three days and the brother and sister should go to their fate together, because you see the brother and sister relationship so beautifully over the years. They go to their deaths physically holding each other.

Do you think you’ll be hanging up your corset for good? [Laughs] For a while. I really do love my history, so I’ll never say never to getting back into the corset for the right role. I said that I wouldn’t for a while and then I read The Scandalous Lady W and found myself in a corset much earlier again than I had anticipated. It really depends on the script, but my next handful of movies are contemporary based so at least for the immediate future there will be some jeans and a t-shirt. – Natalie Dormer
