Natalie Dormer shaved head for The Hunger Games role

GAME OF THRONES star NATALIE DORMER waited three months to show off her new shorn look after shaving half her head for her role in the upcoming THE HUNGER GAMES movies Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2.

The blonde beauty was the talk of the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday (18Jan14) when she unveiled her new coif on the red carpet, and Dormer admits the big reveal was a long time coming.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "It's been hidden for three months. It happened back in October (13). I was, you know, waiting for the right moment. I've never shaved my head before. My man has his head shaved, so... I'd rub it and think, 'This is gonna be me!'

"Francis Lawrence, the director of Mockingjay, and I discussed it and I took the job on the premise that I would possibly have to shave my whole head. I'm actually really pleased that we went halfway... She comes from the Capitol, so she’s got a stylised thing going on and now she’s turned rebel. I think it’s right for the character."

And Dormer, who jokes she's committed to doing a "full Anne Hathaway" in reference to the Oscar-winning actress' brave shaved look in Les Miserables, adds, "It was a bit weird lying in bed for the first few nights. One side feels normal, the other side doesn't feel so normal against the pillow. And hats fit differently."
