Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer finished the London Marathon and that’s good enough for her. She was half a minute slower over the 26.2 mile track as she was last year, but she colorfully described her satisfaction with minuscule decline. “I don’t give a f***,” she informed anyone who thought she was, you know, slowing down.
Dormer’s assessment of her time (3:51, BTW) only worked to draw more attention to her purpose, which is a noble one. “I’m here today because 3,000 children get in contact with ChildLine every day,” she told reporters at the finish line. ChildLine is run by National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and it offers a necessary service that just doesn’t exist elsewhere. Children can talk to a counselor just by calling, and know that whatever they say on the call will be keptin confidence and that they are in a safe environment on the call. The NSPCC‘s slogan is the indisputable “Every childhood is worth fighting for.” Dormer valiantly fought through 26.2 miles to make the fight a little easier for deserving children with no place to turn.
