Natalie Dormer had an explosive end to her five-year stint on “Game of Thrones” — her character, and fan favorite, Margaery Tyrell met a (SPOILER) fiery fate when she was bombed to death in Season 6. But the British actor has made her peace with it.

“I got the golden ticket, the perfect length of time,” Dormer tells Variety. “I watched Season 1 as a fan, came in the second season, did a good solid five years just as the show had this incredible explosion, and then I got out in time to watch the end and sit on the couch again.”

Dormer is now starring in “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” as a shape-shifting demoness named Magda, who also manifests as three distinct human characters. And it’s the show’s larger themes that drew Dormer to the role, in addition to the technical challenge of playing four different parts.
