In addition to the school, artistic Natalie attended the dance studio "Allenova School of Dancing". Then the future actress entered the Douglas Webber Academy of Dramatic Art, in which she was studied by the famous actress Minnie Driver and the popular British theater and film actor Hugh Bonneville.
Debut in the big cinema Natalie Dormer took placein the spring of 2005. She played Victoria in the movie "Casanova" directed by Lasse Hallström with Heath Ledger in the title role. In the process of filming, the director was impressed by the talented play of the young actress in comic episodes, and immediately expanded the plot of the character of Natalie, adding Victoria's buffoonery and lightness. It turned out a magnificent burlesque, and since then Dormer periodically used her comedic abilities in those or other films.
The further career of the actress consisted inmostly from small roles in TV shows. Film company Disney Touchstone offered her a contract to participate in three film projects, but subsequently these three films were not put into production due to financial disagreements. Movies with Natalie Dormer began to appear on the screen after she was included in the list of the most sought after actresses in the UK cinema.
In the television series "Tudors" Natalie produceda real sensation. She played the role of Anna Boleyn - the wife of the ambitious and cruel Henry the Eighth - the King of England. The actress created the image of Anna with tremendous certainty. Her death on the scaffold at the behest of the king, who accused his wife of treason, which was not, made the whole of England sob. The image of Anna Boleyn became truly starry for Natalie. The actress received a double nomination for the Gemini Awards, as well as much praise from film critics.

In 2013, the movie was released thriller"Adviser" directed by Ridley Scott. The composition of the actors involved in the production was truly stellar: Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt. Natalie Dormer, whose filmography already included a lot of pictures with characteristic roles, also took part in a thriller, but her role was episodic, the character did not even have a name. It was an abstract image of a blonde. This is the fate of many stars of the movie screen, when success and recognition alternate with a decline in popularity.
But still the actress Natalie Dormer, whose photo is alreadyhave long become an integral part of glossy magazines, firmly occupied its niche - its role allows us to hope for a successful career continuation. And in 2013, the actress played one of the roles of the second plan in the television series about the detective Sherlock Holmes. Directed by Seth Mann swung at the classics of the unrivaled Conan Doyle. He made the film "Elementary" on the motives of an immortal cycle of stories about a great detective. The picture was more than doubtful: Sherlock Holmes was presented in the image of a chronic drug addict, forced to be treated in an American clinic. Dr. Watson was no longer in the film, the director replaced it with a single movement of the female character - Joan Watson. Slightly healed, Sherlock Holmes discharged from the clinic and begins the duties of a New York police advisor in Brooklyn. The image of Jamie Moriarty - the daughter of the criminal professor Moriarty - was played by actress Dormer impeccably.

When the movie "Tudors" came out on the television screens about the reign of King Henry VIII of England, reporters of newspapers and magazines rubbed their hands - according to many, the love of the king and his young wife went beyond the script.
However, despite the obvious love experiences,occurring on the screen, the sensation did not work out, and to unite actress Natalie Dormer and actor Jonathan Rhys-Myers, giving them the status of lovers, failed.
