Natalie Dormer is best known for her roles as Victoria in Casanova, as the ill-fated queen Anne Boleyn in the Showtime series The Tudors, and as Margaery Tyrell in the 2011 HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones. Dormer auditioned and won the role of Victoria in Casanova with Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller. This was her film debut and it was released in 2005. The director, Lasse Hallström, was so impressed with Dormer's comedic timing that he had the script writer expand her part. On the strength of her audition for the role and her performance, she secured a three-film deal with Disney Touchstone which was never exercised
In June 2011, she joined the cast of the HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones, as Margaery Tyrell of the noble House Tyrell. In March 2012, Dormer returned to the Young Vic to play the title role in After Miss Julie, by Patrick Marber.
