'Game of Thrones' isn't escapism: Natalie Dormer

125 Days ago

Los Angeles: Actress Natalie Dormer thinks fantasy drama TV series "Game of Thrones" is not for people who watch TV as a form of escapism.

Dormer, who stars as Margaery Tyrell on the show, knows it is unlikely to appeal to people who wish to put their everyday concerns behind them, because of its graphic depiction of sex and violence, reports mirror.co.uk.

"All I know is that I turn on the news, and it's covering a boy drowning off the coast, or children being shown beheading videos. The horror of human nature is prevalent in our world, and I appreciate that some people want to turn on the telly for escapism - but if that's what you want, don't watch 'Game of Thrones'," Dormer told Sunday Times magazine.

"I choose fantasy to vent, to process complex political, sexual and social politics at the safe distance of fiction. For me, that's what art should be," she added. (IANS)
