While Bolger hasn’t worked with Dormer since the Showtime series about King Henry VIII ended in 2011, she does want to compare rib cages. Between Tudors and ABC’s Once Upon a Time, in which she portrayed Princess Aurora, the 24-year-old actress has spent her formative years in corsets and body-squeezing fashions.
“I have the worst ribs in the world because of those corsets,” Bolger says of her body. “My ribs are malleable -- they bend in with the corset because I’ve been doing it for so long. I’m sure Natalie is the same. I’d love to see her now and be like, ‘Can I feel your ribs?’ ”

Luckily, Bolger’s character in Emelie doesn’t require such fashion. As the twistedly deceitful babysitter entrusted to watch a couple’s two kids, the actress plays what she describes as “literally” every parent’s worst nightmare clad in jeans and a sweater. And trust us when we say it’s a far cry from the innocent princesses Aurora and Mary she played on TV.
Emelie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has select screenings on April 24 and 26.
