About half of the cast of ‘Game of Thrones’ was slaughtered in the season 6 finale. Now, one of the episode’s victims is speaking out on the shocking moment ‘no one could have predicted.’
In one fell swoop, Game of Thrones killed off many major characters. Cersei finally got her revenge, and so many people paid the price. After the jaw-dropping events of the season 6 finale, one of the actors, whose character went up in flames, is spilling her thoughts on the crazy twist! Spoilers ahead!
Margaery is a queen no longer after being consumed by wildfire in the season 6 finale. Margaery was witnessing her brother, Loras, go on trial before the High Sparrow, when the Sept was filled with flames from the wildfire that Cersei had set beneath the city.
Margaery, Loras, Mace Tyrell, the High Sparrow and more were killed instantly, with Cersei watching from a distance. Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery, revealed that she thinks Margaery’s death was the “perfect way” for her character to die.
“I thought it was really clever,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I really did. It’s not an echo of anything you’ve seen in the last six years. It’s truly it’s own unique moment to tie up what’s been a unique storyline about what’s happened in King’s Landing over the course of season 6. I thought it was an inspired choice. And it’s really interesting that I am given a moment of some vindication at the very end, which was the perfect way for Margaery to leave the show. She’s given a platform to say that she was right, as she always is. But because the power was taken from her, she couldn’t do anything about it.”
Natalie is open about the fact that Margaery handing control over the High Sparrow was not her best power move. Cersei, as expected, outplayed him. “By the end, Margaery is a victim of the High Sparrow’s incompetence,” she continued. “He underestimates Cersei and that’s something Margaery Tyrell would never do. David and Dan try to stay as close to human nature as possible.”
It’s hard to believe that Game of Thrones killed off so many characters in the season finale, but the show really went there. If you thought Jon Snow’s death was shocking, you need to watch the first 30 minutes of the finale again!
