Actress Natalie Dormer, famous for her role as Anne Boleyn on The Tudors, just landed a new gig as an MI-5 agent on Fox’s drama pilot Masterwork.
And all I can say about that is: hot. British accent? Secret agent? Girls kicking ass? Sign me up!
We already know Natalie Dormer is gorgeous. I mean, she had to be in order to play Anne Boleyn. The woman was so sexy that the king of England took the world to the brink of chaos just to sleep with her. (Take that, Helen of Troy!) But aside from being stunning, Miss Dormer, in my humble opinion, is a legitimately good actress. Her performance in The Tudors was layered, complex and, um, hot.
In Masterwork, she’ll play an MI-5 agent who teams up with a male FBI agent on a globetrotting hunt for the world’s most sought after artifacts. Sounds very Indiana Jones meets Nick and Nora Charles — or for you Brangelina fans, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Let’s hope Fox makes the right call and picks this up. We need more tough, smart, sexy, adventurous British women on the boob tube.
