'Elementary' Finds Sherlock's Lover in 'Game of Thrones' Actress


Natalie Dormer
Natalie Dormer is set to appear in multi episodes of the CBS series as Irene Adler, a woman who plays a significant part in Sherlock Holmes' past.


"Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer has landed a pivotal role on CBS' "Elementary". The British actress is cast as Irene Adler, Sherlock Holmes' (Jonny Lee Miller) first and only love in London. Her death led the eccentric detective to develop a drug addiction.

"We're moving to the next chapter in our show - and in some ways, to a previous chapter in Holmes' story," says executive producer Rob Doherty. "Irene Adler is perhaps the most pivotal relationship in Sherlock's life, and I can't think of an actress better suited to the challenge than Natalie."

Dormer will begin her three-episode arc on Thursday, May 9, leading into the two-hour season finale on May 16. On the show, Sherlock has learned that Moriarty was behind the murder of his former lover, Irene.

Dormer is currently starring as Margaery Tyrell on HBO's "Game of Thrones". She's also known for her role as Anne Boleyn on Showtime's "The Tudors". Landing a supporting role as Private Lorraine in "Captain America: The First Avenger", the 31-year-old beauty will next be seen in big-screen productions "Rush", "A Long Way from Home" and "The Counselor".
