natalie dormer goes from ‘game of thrones’ to hozier video girl

you know what they say about girls that wear leather jackets…

Much like her Game of Thrones castmates Richard Madden and Sophie Turner, Natalie Dormer has been veering away from her medieval character Margaery Tyrell. Her latest project? Hozier's dark, seductive new video, "Someone New." 

Directed by Anthony Byrne, the video splits between Hozier (who is serenading a crowd in a dimly lit room) and Dormer as she wanders through the hazy venue and seedy streets looking for a—let's just say, "suitor." It's unclear whether she's seeking a companion to alleviate the loneliness in her life, or whether she's just craving physical attention, but perhaps that's the point. Without any sort of backstory, we're able to infuse the four-minute clip with our own personal narrative. Also, it's just 100% badass—Dormer's character is able to freely fantasize about whomever she wants; and it's up to her to realize her sexual desires and act upon them. “It was a joy to be a part of the ‘Someone New’ video, which for me explores the struggle in all our heads between the real and imaginary," Dormer said in a statement. "It plays with ideas of how loneliness and isolation are two different things and the weight or lightness we can attach to loving another person.”
