The "Game of Thrones" series is not complete without the alluring women playing dangerous games and Natalie Dormer is one who knows how to play it well as her character Margaery Tyrell still lives on. There are many women who have captivated the viewers and Margaery who has emerged in "Game of Thrones" Season 2 when she married Renly Baratheon - one of the opposing sides in the battle for the Iron Throne.

According to Wikipedia, the brunet beauty Margaery is the daughter of Lady Alerie Tyrell and Lord Mace Tyrell and the sister of Loras Tyrell. Margaery was declared queen by Renly's camp but her marriage and the camp did not last as Renly was killed but then she was married off to King Joffrey to strengthen the ties between the Lannisters and Tyrells.

Then again, she became a widow for the second time as King Joffrey was poisoned just after their wedding by the doings of her own grandmother Lady Olenna Redwyne. However, all hope is not lost as her grandmother nudges her to claim the throne through the new king and the younger brother of her deceased husband Joffrey - Tommen Baratheon.

In an interview with Vulture, the 32-year-old English actress shared her insights on playing the beautiful and clever Margaery and how her character fits in the deadly game of chess played in the series. She was asked on her thoughts of Margaery seducing the young Tommen and she replied, "Yeah , it's a very difficult position. Margaery is genuinely having problems recalibrating, because this is not what she planned for."

There is also the issue with Margaery's virginity if she were to go for the crown she may need to prove that she is still a virgin. However, she has suggested to get Renly and her brother Loras into bed together for a threesome just so that her husband can consummate the wedding.

Natalie shares "My Interpretation is that nothing ever happened. I think she tried to get Renly into bed, and offered a threesome or whatever to get him moving, but nothing ever happened. It wasn't consummated in any capacity, at all."

On being one of Cersei's rival in dominating Westeros and on how she never got her charms to work on the Queen Regent she replied, "Cersei is such a veteran, you almost wonder if when she looks in the mirror, she sees a little bit of her younger self in Margaery." She even added "Lena ad I love playing those scenes, because there is so much unsaid that is being said. It's all daggers behind smiles."

It makes one wonder how Margaery Tyrell would end up in the series if she were to come over to the dark side as the plot thickens. Natalie Dormer is even open for her character to play a more physical role if the scenes require her to be. There is still more to watch for in the future episodes in the "Game of Thrones" Season 4.
