Margaery has had some interesting arranged marriages. Do you enjoy seeing her make it through all these relationships? It’s kind of refreshing as a woman not to be playing a character that’s just defined by whom she’s in love with, to be honest. With Margaery, political ambition is motivating her—her relationships with all these different men has an agenda. Game of Thrones is like The Hunger Games in so far as it has beautiful writing of strong, complex, contradictory women—whether you’re talking about Arya Stark or Brienne of Tarth, who are physically empowering themselves; or women like Cersei and Margaery, who are doing the more traditional political court machinations. - Natalie Dormer; Photographed by Chad Pitman for Yahoo!

I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs.
I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair. I want girls who are, in fact, man hating lesbians. I want poor girls.
I need the girls who never took a course in gender studies but who still know the way that society treats them is bullshit.
It doesn’t feel like a revolution when we’re only showing more of the same, when we only raise up the voices of some women.
I need to do better. We all need to do better.
“There are definitely things I’ve picked up over the course of Thrones. The physical stuff within a role is something I respond to anyway – I always enjoy that side of things. And it’s very much a part of who Jon Snow is – he doesn’t talk a lot but he speaks through his actions. I’ve really enjoyed getting into those bits, whether it’s rock climbing, ice climbing, sword fighting, horse riding. And not everyone in Thrones gets to do it.”
