Margaery's moment begins now. "Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer poses topless for the April 2014 issue of GQ, and talks about living beyond her comfort zone.

In the sultry spread, the 32-year-old actress sexily lounges on a red leather couch, wearing nothing but a pair of Emilio Pucci shorts as she covers her breasts with both hands. With her half-shaven shoulder-length locks swept to the right, the beautiful Brit boldly rocks her daring 'do -- which she debuted at the 2014 SAG Awards back in January.

Prior to starring as the popular soon-to-be-queen Margaery Tyrell on "Game of Thrones," Dormer was best-known for her role as Anne Boleyn in Showtime's "The Tudors," which aired from 2007 to 2010. Her latest beauty transformation is actually part of Dormer's shift in acting gigs -- from playing characters in period dramas, where she dresses in "elegant, long, flowing, gentrified skirts," to bringing "badass" "Hunger Games" character Cressida to life in the final two installments of the franchise, "Mockingjay" parts 1 and 2.

"I love going out of my comfort zone -- I live to go out of my comfort zone," Dormer told the mag. "Obviously, you have quieter years than others -- you don't go jumping out of a plane every day."

While the self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie has wholly embraced this adventurous attitude, she confessed to GQ that she really enjoys her sleep. "I'm a bed monster," Dormer said.

Season four of "Game of Thrones" returns April 6.
