Don't be Timid

The exotic beauty of Nathalie Emmanuel gives this 24yr old a serious presence when you’re around her, but Nathalie doesn’t let it get in the way of her being one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Nathalie is as humble as she is talented and spent her day with our team keeping everyone entertained and being a delight to work with. Until relatively recently Nathalie was probably best known in the UK after playing Sasha in the UK hit TV show Hollyoaks, but subsequently this adorable young lady has gone on to wow audiences in theatre land, playing Nala in The Lion King and most recently playing Missandei in the global success story, Game of Thrones.

We were very lucky on timing, we managed to catch her before she went off to Croatia to start filming Season Four and go into production of the next blockbuster installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. So Nathalie has a very busy schedule for the next few months. We are looking forward to her return to the screen, both big and small, Season Four of Game of Thrones is already looking like it’s going to be epic.

We think that Nathalie is far more #EPIC than the pier from whence she came, nothing as beautiful or talented has ever come from Southend-on-Sea.
