It’s one of the biggest nights in the British showbiz calendar, attracting a host of biggest name in Hollywood from both sides of the pond.
And as the great and the good of the showbiz world arrived at the Royal Albert Hall for the 2018 Baftas, there was only one thing on everyone’s mind – the Time’s Up movement.
Making her way down the red carpet in a black gown, former Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer joined the many other actors and actress in wearing an all-black outfit to show her support for the movement, which champions fair treatment of actresses in Hollywood whilst also calling out the predators and casting couch culture.
Speaking about her decision to back the campaign, the 36-year-old British star said: ‘I think we should all be very positive about tonight. We’re all wearing black in solidarity, we’re all wearing black symbolically to say that we’re drawing a thick line through this period of time, and we step forward now.’
She added that she was happy that now ‘a dialogue’ was happening, and that sexual predators and abusers in Hollywood (and the industry at large) were now being outed.
Talking about the movement, which has gained huge traction since it sprung up at the start of the year, she said that ‘there is no going back now,’ for Hollywood.
Taking to the red carpet the former Game of Thrones star looked sensational in an off the shoulder black dress, which featured a sheer trailing cape.
Natalie’s next big project following her run on HBO’s fantasy, which she exited in 2016, the Reading-born actress is set to star opposite Mel Gibson and Sean Penn in The Professor and The Madman.
The film tells the tale of Professor James Murray, who begins work compiling words for the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary in the mid 19th century and receives over 10,000 entries from a patient at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum , Dr William Minor.
