One of the many underrated characters on Game of Thrones is Missandei of Naath, the translator, adviser and friend of Daenerys Targaryen. With her quick translating skills and smart suggestions, Missandei has got a lot of stuff up her sleeve that we don’t know of yet. Actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei on the show, talked about her character during the San Diego Comic Con to Moviefone, and what all she expects next season for Missandei.
Nathalie revealed that she would love a more emphasized romantic track between Missandei and Grey Worm on Game of Thrones, along with some action as well.
“I mean, playing some action would be really fun, just because it’s something outside of Missandei’s realm of what she’s done before,” she said. “War is coming, so maybe she’ll have to. Who knows? She’ll have to learn some sort of skill. But the romantic side is just such a sweet thing and I love it. Their storyline is so, so, so endearing, and I always enjoy working with Jacob [Anderson]. He’s just wonderful. So to maybe explore that some more would be really fun. It’s so nice to watch. Whenever I see our scenes together, or our little moments together, I’m always like, “yay.” It makes me really happy.
She later talked about what she feels like being at Comic Con with her co-stars of such a popular television show, and also other possibilities.
