Among the thousands of participants at Sunday morning’s London Marathon were a handful of celebrities including English actress Natalie Dormer, a star on the HBO television series, Game of Thrones. She completed the 42.195K distance on the same day that season six of the show premiered.

Dormer, 34, plays Margaery Tyrell on the hit series, which she has starred in since 2012. Tyrell is a supporting character in the books but plays a more prominent role in the television series. The actress also appeared in two Hunger Games films.

The television star was running for ChildLine, a 24-hour counselling service for children and young people. She completed Sunday’s race in 3:51:21, negative splitting the race (second half faster than the first).

She also ran the race in 2014 in an almost-identical 3:50:57.

According to the Telegraph, Dormer will relax this evening by watching the season premiere of the show.
