Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) on That Intimate Scene With Grey Worm

Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei in Game of Thrones, talked to EW about her character’s intimate scene with Grey Worm and called the whole thing ‘great’ and ‘fun to play’ as we see a ‘vulnerable’ side to Missandei that we have never seen before on the show:

“We’ve seen them show their interest in each other, we’ve seen them in a roundabout way express it for each other, but not really say it. This point is the climax and they physically act upon it. There’s something unique about it purely because of Grey Worm’s situation — his brutal history of being mutilated — there’s a real sense of trust here and that really plays out in this lovely scene where they physically act upon their love. For him to do that is a really big deal and Missandei knows that and doesn’t really care. She just loves him and that intimacy they’ve shared comes to a head. Missandei is always so official and straight and poised so to be vulnerable and see her human side of her, a little off balance, is kind of great and fun to play. She’s kept things very together to stay composed but this scene is the opposite of that. She’s quite clear about what she wants because she fears she’ll never have the chance to have that with him again.”
