Nathalie Emmanuel is excited for people to watch Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones filming has wrapped up. It is expected to air in the first half of 2019. For the fans, it may be the most epic fantasy TV series ever produced. But, the cast members find a strange nostalgia in it, especially the ones who’ve grown as the series progressed.

We recently shared a post where Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) discussed her experience while working on the show. In this article, we’re sharing Nathalie Emmanuel’s interview with the Ians Agency via the Indian Express.

Nathalie plays one of Daenerys Targaryen’s most trusted advisors – Missandei on the show. She has been playing her in the series since the third season. Missandei’s character has undergone tremendous development from Master Krazneys mo-Nakloz’s translator to the Dragon Queen’s confidant and hand-maiden.

“I think what we can expect from the final season of GoT is just a real push. Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher. There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense,”  said Nathalie speaking about what to expect in the final season.

Praising the final season, she said that it is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking. Absolutely, we all can understand that we won’t be getting a bittersweet ending, as the author of the book series George RR Martin had promised. Speaking on the same, she said:

“All of the things that you expect from ‘Game of Thrones’, but at the same time, since it is the last one, the emotions will be so much more intense. I am very excited for people to see it. We have been working so hard on it. The production is finished now.”

Praising the team-effort Game of Thrones cast and crew is putting up for a fantastic Season 8, she also said, “It took us longer to shoot this season than any of the seasons…I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one.”

Apart from Game of Thrones, Nathalie has been playing an eminent role in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise. Speaking about the same she said, “The reason why these films continue to be so popular today is because they are very inclusive of people from all kinds of backgrounds. They look very different from one another, they travel with each movie all over the world and show different cultures, different language, different landscape and they take people outside of what they know and represent them too.

How excited are you for the epic final season of Game of Thrones and what do you think would be the bittersweet part of it? Tell us in the comments section.

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
