Drawing: Natalie Dormer

English actress Natalie Dormer has returned to the West End this month as the brash, vulgar, unschooled actress Vanda Jordan in the Patrick Marber-directed two-hander VENUS IN FUR at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Natalie’s last appearance on the London boards was Patrick Marber’s AFTER MISS JULIE at the Young Vic in 2012. Reviews said she was “nothing short of sensational”. She also appeared two years earlier on the same stage as Mitzi in SWEET NOTHINGS. Natalie gained international prominence on the big screen as Cressida in THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY, Parts 1 and 2 and on the small screen as Margaret Tyrell in THE GAME OF THRONES.I meet her after Saturday’s evening performance at the stage door where she signed this drawing for me.
