Game of Thrones star reveals the one thing she was ‘pissed’ at in Season 7


“It was so stupid.”

Within the world of Game of Thrones, no character is really ever safe – sometimes, as much as we wish they were.

But after their characters’ typically unavoidable deaths, ex-Game of Thrones stars are able to see what happens to those their characters once loved – and left behind – in Westeros.

Sadly, it’s never really pretty.

And it was even more unfortunate for Natalie Dormer, who played Margaery Tyrell.

Spoiler alert warning.

Unfortunately, in this case, House Tyrell didn’t end up fairing too well after Margaery’s fiery death in season 6.

And the death of her brother, Loras. And her father, Mace.

Basically, it wasn’t looking too good for the Tyrell family.

However, the Tyrell’s lived on through the scene-stealing and over all queen, Lady Olenna, in season 7.

That is, until Jamie Lannister and the rest of his soldiers sacked Highgarden – which wound up putting an end to House Tyrell for good.

And now Natalie has weighed in on seeing the scenes play out on-screen, as well as Lady Olenna’s now-iconic final scene.

She told Mashable: “I was a bit pissed off. Just looking at how gorgeous Highgarden was – and when the Highgarden soldiers were all dead on the floor, I felt, you know, protective. It was so stupid. It was that little bit of Margaery that’s still in the back of my brain.”

She adds: “Men wearing my sigil, lying in a pool of their own blood on the floor. I was like, ‘Who’s done this to my home?!’ It would not have happened if Margaery had still been alive.”

She also praised the Queen of Thorns’ “very moving” last scene with Jamie Lannister, where she admitted she was the one behind Joffrey’s death.

The actress continued: “It was a very moving scene. You really feel them revving the gears in [season seven]. There’s got to be a lot of collateral damage to get to the end of season eight. So you can kind of smell that it’s coming.”

Growing Strong, indeed.
