The award may come as something of an embarrassment for BBC Three and its controller Zai Bennett because The Fades was cancelled after just one series due to budget cut backs at the digital station.
The axe was despite The Fades receiving decent ratings and good reviews – ATV Today’s critic Queenie Le Trout wrote several favourable reviews of the series.The Fades managed to beat BBC One‘s critically acclaimed spy drama Spooks, ITV‘s popular Scott and Bailey and E4 series Misfits.
First Showing – “It’s great characters in a world… a sport that’s so dramatic.” The 70th Monaco Grand Prix just took place and perfectly timed with that, the BBC has released a video featurette with a first look at Ron Howard’s new F1 film Rush. We’ve been hearing about casting, and it’s already shooting around the world now. The film focuses on the rivalry between drivers Niki Lauda (played by Daniel Brühl) and James Hunt (played by Chris Hemsworth). For those that aren’t inherently familiar with Formula 1 racing and this rivalry, the featurette does a superb job of recapping the history, and gives us a tease at the intensity and drama in this.
Ron Howard’s new movie Rush, from a screenplay written by Peter Morgan (The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, Frost/Nixon, Hereafter), is a biography about Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life. Mere weeks after the accident, he got behind the wheel to challenge his rival, James Hunt. The movie is set in the 1970s and follows the on-and-off track lives of Hunt and Lauda and their racing teams of McLaren and Ferrari. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, Alexandra Maria Lara and Christian McKay. No official release date has been set for Howard’s Rush, but we’ll definitely keep you updated on this – it looks like it could turn out pretty damn good.
There’s a featurette but Natalie is not in it, so I’m not going to post it.
I have brought the gallery back up to date with three new appearances and one new photo of an old 2010 photoshoot.

First off I’m very sorry the site is lagging on updates, been a tad bit busy. But I am working on getting us up-to-date again. Secondly, we have a new layout at our Media Archive which was designed also by Nowhere Land9. I also moved the archive from vshare to wordpress media, I find the script much better and its much neater.
Natalie Dormer may have been topless during one of her first scenes in Game of Thrones, but it was her character’s attitude about sex with her husband that made the biggest impression.
In Sunday’s episode, Dormer had to play the not-so-shy virgin Margaery Tyrell, who tries to consummate her marriage with Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony). When he can’t quite rise to the occasion, she offers to enlist the help of her brother Loras (Finn Jones), who just so happens to be Renly’s lover.

“I think she’s empathetic and understanding. There is no malice, there is no anger toward Renly and his love for her brother,” Dormer tells TVGuide.com. “The family bonds between the Tyrells is incredibly strong. She has a lot of love and respect for Loras, and since Loras chooses Renly to love, I think she tries to be supportive.
“The political aspect is a practicality of the marriage in order to benefit all parties, to benefit their house, to benefit Renly. The Baratheons may be the future of Westeros,” she continues. “I think that she genuinely sees that they can be a trinity and that they can work as three. They say that the strongest shape is a triangle, so I think she believes there is an exciting, plausible future of the three of them working together.”
Check out what else Dormer has to say about Margaery’s practicality, locking horns with Littlefinger and wearing that plunging neckline.
You’re best known in the U.S. as Ann Boleyn on The Tudors. You’ve become quite the go-to girl for period drama on cable!
Natalie Dormer: [Laughs] My range does exchange beyond that. But I hear it’s a commonality to jump between HBO and Showtime and vice versa, so I take it as a compliment really.Read More
After a long time of running the first layout for the site I thought it was time for a change. This current layout was made by the lovely Nicole at Nowhereland9 Design. She did an absolutely fantastic job wouldn’t you agree. She also made us a WordPress Media Center layout, and I will debut that very soon as I am switching out media archive from vshare as I do not like it.
I have added a new still of Natalie as Margery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, stills from her performance as Julie in the play After Miss Julie and a brand new photoshoot.
Natalie is feature for a couple of seconds as Margery, looks like its going to be awesome.
I have added four promotional images for Natalie’s upcoming part in the theatre production “After Miss Julie”
