On the basis of her performance in Casanova (2005), Natalie has a 3 picture deal with Disney/Touchstone.

Her role in Casanova (2005) was originally written to be much smaller. But Natalie so impressed Director Lasse Hallström, he expanded her part, and also injected more humor into the role once he realized how well Natalie handled comedy.

Has played the mothers of both of England's "Queen Elizabeths". She portrayed "Anne Boleyn" in Showtime's series, Los Tudor (2007), opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and was later cast as the "Queen Mother" by Madonna in her film, W.E. (2011), which was based on the romance between Duke of Windsor and his twice-divorced American mistress/wife, Duchess of Windsor.

Despite rumours that Dormer is related to historical lady-in-waiting Jane Dormer, who served Queen Mary I, they have no familial connection. On this subject, Dormer stated, "It's one of these fabricated Wikipedia facts that is completely false. I don't know my heritage at all; I've never traced it! There was a woman, called Jane Dormer, in the Royal Court who happened to have the same family name as me, but I think that's as far as it goes.".

Her names originates from the Late Latin name Natalia. It is derived from the Latin phrases natale domini, "birth of Lord", or dies natalis, "Birthday".

Well during the first season, Alfie [Allen], Richard [Madden], and several of the men got naked -- although not all the way. I suppose it's just the rules of broadcast television, isn't it?

I love those women that I play that have sexual power. But I'm trying to step away from it for me, and my artistic growth. It's more about who I am. I'm not that woman.
