Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama set in a world where swordplay is common, guns have yet to be invented, and where dragons and magic play key roles. Despite being decidedly fantasy, the characters on the series have some similarities to life as we know it. Recently, Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell on the series, even went so far as to say that if Margaery were living in the present day, she’d basically be Kim Kardashian.
For several seasons now, Margaery Tyrell has plotted and smiled her way through a series of schemes meant to keep her as close to the crown and as popular among the people as possible. While she does not have social media like Instagram and Twitter at her disposal, she has done a lot by helping out the poor while bethrothed to Joffrey, thus gaining the love of the people. In court, she has also had a pretty strong entourage and tends to bring tact to delicate social situations. She has pretty much everyone but Cersei and the sparrows on her side, and it’s a lack of alliance with those two factions that led to her getting thrown into jail during Season 5.
While her antics aren’t exactly as outrageous as the Kim Kardashian Paper Magazine shoot that broke the Internet several months ago, Dormer does have a point about Margaery Tyrell being like Kardashian in some ways. She’s a woman born into privilege who has used her position and advantages to propel herself even further into the limelight.
When last we left Margaery, she wasn’t in the best position, but if she does a little more scheming, she should be right as rain soon enough. We’ll find out when Game of Thrones returns for Season 6 this spring. For now, here’s everything we know about the upcoming episodes.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. Theme park junkie. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
