Natalie Dormer tries out a loose Katniss-inspired braid for her feature in the debut issue of Yahoo Style.
Check out what the 32-year-old Game of Thrones and Hunger Games actress had to share:
On shaving her head for The Hunger Games: “I had a kind of reconciled myself to it by the time it I sat in the trailer and they got the razor out. [The cut] opens you up to exploring more kind of punky, funky looks on the red carpet or at events. But I was actually quite surprised at Comic-Con—there’s a lot of lopsidedness going on. Girls are doing the lopsided thing, very tight…down one side so it almost looks like they’re shaved. That seems to be en vogue and I seem to be ahead of the curve. I don’t know if the Katniss Everdeen thing is catching on as well, but a lot of girls are wearing plaits to one side.”
On Jennifer Lawrence: “Jen has this amazing reputation as being really grounded and very real and very funny and she’s all those things. She keeps the mood buoyant. So there was a very fun energy on set. And it’s long hours—action takes a long time to shoot—and it’s sometimes very hard stuff. So yeah, you’re just standing in the dark with water up to your neck. It’s sort of… after 12 hours, everyone’s cracking jokes to keep each other laughing. That’s how you get through that kind of stuff.”
On going rebel for The Hunger Games: “It was fun to be with the boys in the mud and the dirt, and being empowered in a physical sense. And now, after nine months of running around in dirt and water, it’s nice to get back into [Game of Thrones'] Margaery’s silk skirts.”
