"Oh, my god, that’s such a harsh thing to say about Margaery! You’ve hurt me! People have got Margaery all wrong. She’s so much more sincere than people think. Genuinely, she is. She’s just a pragmatist. She genuinely is a pragmatist, which is what Sansa is becoming. If you’re not pragmatic around Cersei Lannister, bad things are going to happen to you. So, it’s not about being vindictive and conniving. It’s about survival, which is what the game of thrones is. That’s why people identify with the characters. They’re not goodies and baddies. There’s a humanity to these characters. They’re anti-heroic, in various forms. You understand their motivation ‘cause everyone’s just trying to survive, and we can all identify with that."
- Natalie Dormer when asked, “Does Margaery love anything besides herself, her brother and the pursuit of power?” (x)
