Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer says men are objectified as much as women in the world of showbiz - and pointed to Aidan Turner's Poldark as an example.

The 33-year-old actress, who is set to appear in 18th century drama The Scandalous Lady on BBC Two, also said she believes "perseverance will out".

Asked about her personal experience of sexism, Dormer said: "My personal experience has been to work on phenomenal jobs in which the men are objectified as much as the women.

"Actors suffer from it, too. Wasn't there a thing about Aidan Turner in Poldark?"

Turner won millions of fans for his brooding role as Captain Ross Poldark in the BBC's hit remake of the Cornish saga.
