Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) says Game of Thrones changed her life

Published

on


Game of Thrones was a huge show. It comprised many characters and each of those characters had a significance of their own. Even the actors that were part of the show belonged to different diversity and were proud to represent their origin. Nathalie Emmanuel who played the character of Missandei too felt that she was part of a change and was thankful for the show.

As per The Sun, Emmanuel in her recent interview felt grateful towards the show for pulling her out of the slump.

She said:

“That job changed my life. I really am grateful for that time, because it pulled me out of a slump. Suddenly, I was being thrown onto these big stages and I had to woman up to it.”

She felt proud to represent a character that had undergone so much in her life. She said:

“I had the opportunity to shape a person who had been through unimaginable things and really tell her story.”

She also felt that a strong reaction from all quarters towards her death was an important change.

“It sparked such necessary conversation around diversity and inclusion. I’m used to there being only one role for the ‘brown person’, but when you’ve got a show that has so many eyes on it, you realize she represented so many people. When you kill the only woman of color, there’s going to be a huge reaction.”

She said she was hopeful that shows and movies become more representative of the real-life world.

“Hopefully there can be a discussion about representation. And, when shows of that scale are made again, that the cast looks like the world we live in.”

Emmanuel had spoken about the lack of diversity in Thrones earlier as well. She has continued that discussion and its refreshing to see an actor trying to bring about the change in the world in her own way.

Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternels. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Jacob Anderson has also been stirring up the internet recently with his new roles. A few weeks ago, Anderson made headlines when he joined the cast of Doctor Who in a recurring role. This time, he is in the news for being selected as the lead for AMC’s adaptation of Anne Rice’s Gothic vampire novel Interview With the Vampire.

Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa responds to Dave Bautista's buddy-cop movie proposal

It is always fun to watch our favorite stars team up on the screen. Long-time wrestling fans remember Dave Bautista as the 6’4″ hulking who dominated the ring with his awesome physique. He has impressed his fans with his on-screen presence as the Guardians of The Galaxy’s Drax the Destroyer. The wrestler turned actor is looking forward to expanding the variety in his roles, and he wants to do it with none other than his actor friend Jason Momoa.

Bautista met the Game of Thrones alum on the sets of the upcoming sci-fi film Dune, and they quickly became close buddies. He recently posted an idea on his official Twitter account, asking Momoa if he would like to team up for a buddy-cop movie directed by David Leitch.

Momoa quickly responded to his buddy call, making it public on The Late Late Show with James Corden. he said, “I’m not on Twitter, but he literally texted me about four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film.’ We love each other, you know, obviously we met on See, we’re on Dune together, so I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he’s like, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ I’m like, ‘Let’s do it.’ I’m like, ‘I got an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it.”

Hopefully, things will work out for the duo and we might get one of the best action-cop flicks we have ever seen. What do you think about the anticipated team-up? Tell us in the comments below!

Doctor Who adds Game of Thrones Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) in recurring role

Game of Thrones had an ensemble of the most amazing cast. You can find them frequently in other famous franchises, some even joining big production houses such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s Eternals is about to drop, starting Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Richard Madden. Their co-star Emilia Clarke is soon to follow them. Other than that, another Game of Thrones alum is set to join a famous fictional universe. Jacob Anderson, popular for playing Grey Worm on the show, will be joining the ever sprawling cast of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who is a pop culture icon, entertaining a huge following of fans over decades. Jacob has been cast as the mysterious Vinder, a recurring character who will pop up throughout the series. Vinder will join forces with the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop) as the Time Lord faces her biggest ever adventure battling the forces of evil across time and space.

Details about Vinder are being kept under wraps but according to Jacob, he is ‘adventurous and dynamic. “The Doctor has been a part of my life forever, from watching and rewatching the serials on VHS as a kid and being terrified, to unexpectedly finding my eyes watering when the Tenth Doctor said “I don’t want to go”, I always wanted to live in the Whoniverse,” Jacob shared.

Not only has a lifelong dream of mine now been fulfilled, but to be playing a character as fun, adventurous and dynamic as Vinder is the cherry on top. This is very cool.”
