GAME OF THRONES cast member Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei, has dropped a huge script revelation ahead of the eighth and final season which is expected to air next year.
The actress has played Daenerys Targaryen’s (played by Emilia Clarke) right-hand woman and scribe, Missandei, in Game of Thrones since season three.
But Nathalie, 29, has revealed she was only ever due to last a few episodes when she was first cast for the role.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Nathalie spilled: “When I got that part it was really vague. The character breakdown was like maybe three to five episodes with the potential for future seasons.
“It was really vague, they didn’t know whether she would continue but it was a recurring part.”
As a big fan of the show, Nathalie admitted she didn’t mind the fact she was only going to last a very short period.
She said: “I was happy to be in one episode! I was such a huge fan I was like I will take it, whatever.”
Missandei has stuck by Daenerys’ side throughout her mission to conquer Westeros to take the Iron Throne.
She has become a vital person in the Mother of Dragons’ quest but Nathalie said she didn’t expect to last this long.
“I was not expecting to still be here in the last season at all,” she divulged.
