Natalie Dormer is hoping that her role in The Hunger Games will help her to break away from playing royalty in films.

The star has played many historical queens including Anne Boleyn in The Tudors, Elizabeth in W.E., Victoria in Heath Ledger’s Casanova, as well as portraying soon-to-be Queen Margaery in Game of Thrones.

She told Wenn, “I have played royalty, but, like Kate Winslet or Helena Bonham Carter, I very much believe that I can depart from that in the future and challenge those perceptions of me.

“I think I’m doing that with things like The Counsellor and The Hunger Games, which I’m so chuffed to be part of.”
