Tropes related to her works:

  • Acting for Two: invoked In The Forest, she plays twin sisters Sara and Jess Price.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: invoked
    • 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: invoked As Private Lorraine in Captain America, Irene Adler in Elementary, Cressida in Mockingjay, and the Blonde in The Counselor. Though Irene's really English.
  • 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.
