Game of Thrones Star Natalie Dormer Previews the "Power Struggle" Ahead and the New Joffrey

All hail the new king of Westeros!

Game of Thrones is not giving its characters anytime to mourn (Spoiler alert!) the death of Jack Gleeson' King Joffrey (as if they would really mourn him anyway!) as Joff's younger brother, Tommen, played by Dean-Charles Chapman, has already been tapped to sit atop the Iron Throne. Oh, and he'll he inheriting more than just his brother's crown: He's set to wed Margaery (Natalie Dormer), Joff's wife-of-about-three-hours. E! News chatted with Natalie Dormer, Westeros' wife-of-the-moment about what's ahead for the always-scheming Margaery.

"The power has shifted. Tommen has been lined up as the heir, so it's now all about who can control that boy," Dormer previewed during her sitdown with Alicia Quarles. "All the women are trying to get their claws in."

But will Tommen prove to be just as villainous as Joffrey, who was arguably one of TV's most hated characters of all time? He certainly has big shoes to fill, as Dormer explained, "Everyone's enjoyed hating [Joffrey] so much for four years that you kind of wonder who they're going to hate…be able to fill that Joffrey hole that is going to be left vacant now and who can we really despise inthe same way because Jack did such a good job."

And while Joffrey won't be missed, Dormer said Jack Gleeson's presence on the HBO fantasy hit's set definitely will be.

Watch our exclusive interview with Dormer above to hear what she had to say about the "weird" vibe on set while filming Joffrey's big death scene. Plus, she revealed which actor was the most upset on Gleeson's final day of filming.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO. Make sure to check back with us tomorrow for more scoop from Natalie Dormer!
