The M match-up

Cressida

Margaery

HUNGER GAME OF THRONES

English actress Natalie Dormer, 32, is a total gamer girl, 
snagging awesome roles in both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and Game Of Thrones. Question is, which game is she best at?

CHARACTER

A wonderful addition to The Hunger Games franchise, she plays a movie director from The Capitol who joins the rebellion in order to make propaganda films with Katniss. She's brave, principled, creative and just downright cool.

In the TV series Game Of Thrones, her mission is to marry the king, whoever that king may be, for the benefit of her family, the Tyrells. Smart, charming and lovely, her EQ is off the charts. She's capable of mastering any social situation she's put into and is adept at court intrigue.

IT'S A DRAW

Though we know Margaery a bit better, Cressida is equally engaging.

ACTING

Dormer knows she isn't the star of the show, she's just there to support Jennifer Lawrence. She does a wonderful job conveying her character's admiration and empathy for the girl, while at the same time still asserting her own strength as a performer. It's a wonderfully smart, understated performance.

You can tell that Dormer is having all kinds of fun playing Margaery. She conveys her sense of humour and lightness of touch even when things get crazy. She basically wafts through a show that other actors sometime plod through - yes, we're talking to you Kit Harington, as much as we love you!

IT'S A DRAW

Dormer is excellent in both roles.

LOOKS

No woman has ever looked better with her head half-shaved than Cressida. She also sports beautiful vine tattoos that run down from her shaved head to her left arm. Her riot girl outfits and black body armour are also aces.

She is a seducer of kings, and she looks the part. Margaery favours long, flowing gowns of silver and blue, and the one thing you can always count on is that she'll always be showing off some cleavage. It's her not-so-secret weapon.

IT'S A DRAW

Whether dressed like a mediaeval maiden or a future femme, she's hot.

VERDICT

THEY'RE BOTH WINNERS

Dormer knows how to play the Hollywood game to a T. Perfect score, baby!
