Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer has a gorgeous head of hair, but she certainly didn’t seem to have a problem getting rid of it.

The 31-year-old actress debuted a shocking new 'do — a half-shaved head! — at the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 18. The unexpected look was the perfect complement to her Marios Schwab dress, which featured edgy mesh details on the arms.

It wasn’t boredom that caused Natalie to undergo such a crazy transformation, but her role in the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. The final installments of the franchise will have Natalie portraying the role of Cressida, a rebel from the Capitol who works with Katniss and President Coin.

“The hair department of Mockingjay [shaved] it and I love it,” she told E! News. “A little trepidation but I was excited.”

As for her role in Game of Thrones, Natalie and her castmates were nominated by the SAGs for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. (Other nominees included Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, and Homeland. Breaking Bad walked away with the statue.) Natalie was joined on the red carpet by her co-stars Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, and Lena Headey.
