The lady wears the pants in The Hunger Games!
Natalie Dormer is used to wearing elaborate gowns as Lady Margaery Tyrell on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but the tough girl wardrobe she gets to sport as Cressida in the upcoming Mockingjay – Part 1, in theaters on Nov. 21, is a welcomed changed.
“I’m usually in long silk gowns and heels, so it felt liberating to be running around in pants with a semiautomatic rifle!” Dormer, 32, told Us Weekly.
Another style twist she was anticipating? A break from Lady Margaery’s voluminous updos. Cast as a rebel videographer with all intent to take down The Capitol, Dormer gets to rock an edgy haircut. Fun fact: The look was initially supposed to be a full buzz cut. “I was like, ‘It’s hair! It’ll grow back,'” she tells Us. “But the director changed his mind.”
