!!Tropes related to her works:

* ActingForTwo: In ''The Forest'', she plays twin sisters Sara and Jess Price.
* CatSmile: There is no shortage of [[https://www.google.com/search?q=natalie+dormer+cat+smile&client=firefox-b&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi74fW8_8fUAhXMFpQKHd9bDQ8Q_AUICigB&biw=846&bih=563 images of her]] pulling this off in RealLife.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: ''Series/TheTudors'' = [[OffWithHisHead beheaded]], ''Series/TheFades'' = DeadToBeginWith, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' = [[NoBodyLeftBehind blown-up to smithereens]], ''Film/TheForest2016'' = DrivenToSuicide by extreme paranoia and stress ([[PlayingTheirOwnTwin at least one of the twin characters she's playing survives]]).
* DyeingForYourArt:
** Shaved part of her head for her role in ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjay''.
** Dyed her blonde hair brunette for the part of Anne Boleyn -- ''against'' the creators' wishes, believe it or not! Dormer flatly refused to play Anne as anything other than the brunette she was in real life.
* FakeAmerican: As Private Lorraine in ''Captain America'', Irene Adler in ''Elementary'', Cressida in ''Mockingjay'', and the Blonde in ''The Counselor''.
* MsFanservice: A good amount of her roles qualify.
* SeparatedAtBirthCasting: There has been some note that she looks [[https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2014-06/27/3/enhanced/webdr06/enhanced-9495-1403855497-14.jpg very much]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BruIjH7CIAA5ABS.jpg like her]] on-screen grandmother in ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Creator/DianaRigg, did in her youth.
* TypeCasting: Three of her television roles feature beautiful women that should not be trusted, Anne Boleyn, Irene Adler[[spoiler:/Jamie Moriarty]], and Margaery Tyrell.
