Nathalie Emmanuel, the actress who has been playing the role of Missandei on Game of Thrones since season three, is saying goodbye to the epic series after her character’s death.
In “The Last of the Starks,” Missandei was captured by Cersei’s army and she was executed when Daenerys refused to surrender.
“It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath… The quiet and kind translator. A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice… and her one and only love,” Nathalie wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (May 7). “She represented so much for me, personally, that I have no choice but to carry the things she has taught me into my life going forward.”
“Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to play this part… this life changing part… there are too many to list… @emilia_clarke GIRL! I love you… SO much. I’ve loved playing your BFF for the past 7 years. Thank you for being such a wonderful person in my life and a source of light and laughter. The Bad Ass Boss Lady Warrior Goddess club will live on forever ???,” she wrote.

“@raleighritchie…. Jacoooob! I literally cannot tell you what sharing the screen with you has meant to me. I found performances I didn’t know I had inside me, simply because you gave me so much to work against,” Nathalie continued. “Playing Missandei and Grey Worm’s journey has been so special. I couldn’t have asked for a more generous and supportive co-star… Also… We’ve been out in these streets together boiiii?? negotiating so much but always having each other’s back. Thank you for all of it… you have been a dear friend at every point.”
“To the entire cast and crew… You will always hold a special place in my heart. The love and energy we shared will be hard to match. I feel like I hit the jackpot meeting and working with you all. I love you,” she added. “To the fans of the show, and of Missandei… Thank you for all the love and support… It’s been a pleasure playing her for you. I know last night was pretty intense for some of you so I invite you to participate in my fantasy where I like to think that, right now…. Missandei is sipping a rum on a beach somewhere in sky ?… ??.”
