Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer on Power Plays and the Margaery-Joffrey Dynamic

With the populace of King's Landing screaming for Lady Margaery Tyrell, has a new queen upset the power balance in Westeros? Should Cersei be watching her back? "The Tyrells are a problem," Cersei tells her father. "Margaery has her claws in Joffrey. She knows how to manipulate him." But the path has not been as easy as Margaery makes it look, playing upon Joffrey's sadism, insecurity, and lust all at once, taking him in hand in a way Sansa never could. Natalie Dormer, who plays the widowed bride of Renly and the future bride of Joffrey, called up Vulture before flying out to New York for her guest spot on Elementary to chat about power plays, foreplay with her future mother-in-law, and how to handle a boy with a crossbow.
