LOS ANGELES, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Natalie Dormer says there's more trouble to come for Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones.

The 33-year-old English actress previewed her character's future on the HBO series on Monday's episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden. Margaery was last seen in Season 5 after being imprisoned on Cersei Lannister's (Lena Heady) orders.

"I can't tell you very much," Dormer told Corden and Modern Family actor Ty Burrell. "Cersei is the least of Margaery's problems. She's got bigger problems this season."

The actress has portrayed Margaery since Season 2, and will return for Season 6 in 2016. Dormer recently discussed the possibility of playing a female Doctor Who or James Bond with Radio Times, saying she'd be interested if the "script was fantastic."

"For me it's always about the script," she shared. "It has to be real human beings, contradictory, flawed, complex multidimensional characters. It can't just be concept. You know, female James Bond -- concept. It has to have quality in the writing of real human psychology."

Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R.R. Martin. Actor Ian McShane hinted at his new, Season 6 character last week, telling Pop Goes the News he will bring "somebody back that you think you're never going to see again."
