Nathalie Emmanuel says she’s excited for Game of Thrones Season 7 as Winter “kicks into gear now”
If there’s one show that knows how to hype us all up, it’s Game of Thrones. Right since the beginning of the show, when Ned Stark had his head on, we have been hearing that Winter is coming. It’s the shows 7th year now, and looks like Winter is finally here, and it brings the dead with it. Cast interviews have been in abundance, as of late, and we have been getting some nice reveals, and comments. The latest one comes from Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei on the show. She talked about how and why she’s excited for Season 7, and more. Read on!
In a recent interview with InStyle.co.uk, Nathalie Emmanuel talked about a lot of things, including Game of Thrones Season 7, Winter, Missandei’s friendship with Daenerys, and more. Talking about Season 7, she said :
“I’m excited about this season because a lot of the momentum we’ve been building with this winter that is coming, or has been coming for a long time, kicks into gear now. And there’s a continuation of characters who haven’t previously interacted coming together, which is always exciting to watch.”
She then talked about the strong women on Game of Thrones, and how the show portrayed them :
“Game of Thrones write very complex characters so well – I love that you see real strength in the characters who are in a less powerful position and who’ve been oppressed, and weakness or vulnerability in the strong characters. The women really exemplify this as they are such a force to be reckoned with. Take Missandei – she’s been a slave her whole live and is incredibly intelligent and uses that for the greater good. She and Daenerys have that in common; Daenerys was sold in a sense for the advancement of men, so they have that solidarity in having both been used but emerging stronger.”
Lastly, she talked about one of the Game of Thrones fandom’s biggest ships, Missandei and Grey Worm :
“They’re such a great couple because there’s a purity about their connection. It’s been born of a place of pain and confusion and oppression, so they understand one another. It’s very human, and yet very rare. In that world of people being butchered and battered and manipulated, there’s this very pure, very sweet thing. It’s special.”
Nathalie also talked about a few more things, Game of Thrones unrelated. You can read the full interview, over here. What do you think about this interview? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
