Tropes related to her works:
- Acting for Two: In The Forest, she plays twin sisters Sara and Jess Price.
- Cat Smile: There is no shortage of images of her pulling this off in Real Life.
- Chronically Killed Actor: The Tudors = beheaded, The Fades = Dead to Begin With, Game of Thrones = blown-up to smithereens, The Forest (2016) = Driven to Suicide by extreme paranoia and stress (at least one of the twin characters she's playing survives).
- Dyeing for Your Art:
- Shaved part of her head for her role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
- 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.
- Fake American: As Private Lorraine in Captain America, Irene Adler in Elementary, Cressida in Mockingjay, and the Blonde in The Counselor.
- Ms. Fanservice: A good amount of her roles qualify.
- Separated-at-Birth Casting: There has been some note that she looks very much◊ like her◊ on-screen grandmother in Game of Thrones, Diana Rigg, did in her youth.
- Typecasting: Three of her television roles feature beautiful women that should not be trusted, Anne Boleyn, Irene Adler/Jamie Moriarty, and Margaery Tyrell.
