I’ve added photos of Nathalie attending Afrojack’s “Forget The World” Album Release Celebration on May 20, 2014 and the New Horizons 5K Run/Walk in LA on June 7, 2014 that was mentioned on Twitter. You can view them all in the gallery!
I’ve added stills from last night’s episode of Game of Thrones to the gallery. If you’re looking for captures…I don’t have those ready yet but I will very soon.
Missandei’s storyline is really starting to pick up–I’m excited to see what happens! If you didn’t know, Nathalie will be a regular cast member next season, so we’ll be seeing a lot more of her from now on.
Ludacris gave a nice shoutout to Nathalie on Instagram from the set of FF7!

Nathalie shared an exclusive photo from the set of Fast & Furious 7 that was originally posted by Vin Diesel. Her comment:
Just HAD to repost @vindiesel‘s photo. Such a lovely relaxed moment captured here. Which is how the entire fast family, cast and crew alike, have made me feel from day one. I will be forever grateful for the wonderful souls that I have had the pleasure of knowing, working with and learning from… #blessed #fast7 #neverforgotten

Salon.com has an exclusive interview with Nathalie about her character on Game of Thrones and what we could see next from Missandei.
In the “Game of Thrones” season premiere, when warriors Daario Naharis and Grey Worm were busted for goofing off on the Khaleesi’s time, the latter received an additional warning glance from fellow former slave Missandei.
Some superfans have chosen to interpret this flash familiarity as a hint that the two will pair up romantically. As Grey Worm is the commander of the Unsullied, and the Unsullied are eunuchs, this seems unlikely.
Nathalie Emmanuel, the 25-year-old British actress who plays Missandei, offers a much more rational explanation in an interview with Salon. Alas, for those who pray Daenarys Targaryan’s occasional penchant for hooking up with her handmaidens will extend to Missandei, Emmanuel tries to dispel that notion as well.
So, what’s behind that sharp look you threw Grey Worm in the season premiere?
What it is between those two is that they come from similar backgrounds – obviously very different in that he’s been horribly mutilated and tortured and has experienced all kinds of horrendous things. But, out of everyone in that group, they are the only ones who understand one another. They both have been raised under these extreme circumstances where they have to be very, very disciplined. So, I imagine that, in the beginning of that episode when she’s like, “Where are Daario and Grey Worm?” and they’re gambling, Missandei’s already gone and said, “She’s going to be very cross with you. What are you doing?” So, when she gives that look, it’s like, “I told you so!” It’s that, “I did warn you” kind of thing.
You see it almost as a brother-sister kind of relationship?
It’s her job in a way to aid that transition for him as Unsullied warrior to a part of the Queen’s guard. I think she would probably feel a little responsible for him if he’s misbehaving – or any of them. I feel like Missandei would make sure everything is in place for her queen. When they’re not doing that, she can say, “What are you doing? This is not how we do things.” I don’t know if she would be the same way towards Ser Jorah or Ser Barristan because they’re knights. She doesn’t really understand their world. She would probably be quite closed off. But Grey Worm is one of her people from her background so she feels she can be that way with him, maybe.
Nathalie attended the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones in New York last night! She looked absolutely stunning in her Georges Chakra ensemble. I’ve added a bunch of high quality photos to the gallery! Check them out. She is pictured below with her co-star, Emilia Clarke. I haven’t found any videos just yet, but I’ll post them up if I do.
Nathalie attended the 22nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing on March 2, 2014. I’ve added a few pictures in the gallery. I’ve also added a few more pictures from her appearance at the LA Italia Film Festival.
