According to the interpreter, her work as Missandei in the series has led her to assume, erroneously, that she feels comfortable shooting these types of scenes.
It has been two years since Game of Thrones said goodbye to viewers forever with its eighth season, but Nathalie Emmanuel, unforgettable for having played the lovable and faithful Missandei since the third installment of the series, He has assured even today his career is still affected by some of the scenes he shot for the HBO fiction. In statements for the podcast ‘Make It Reign’, the also former of Misfits has explained that the nudes that he starred in the skin of Missandei have generated preconceptions but completely wrong in some producers.
According to Emmanuel, the intimate scenes that his character starred in as part of the romantic relationship with Gray Worm (Jacob Anderson) they have been perceived by the production teams of other projects as being completely comfortable with nudes, when, to tell the truth, nothing could be further from the truth. The interpreter felt comfortable with those kinds of scenes in Game of ThronesYes, but that comfort does not mean that it is, by default, in other series or movies that also require it.
When I did ‘Game of Thrones’, I agreed on certain nude scenes for the series … And the perception of other projects, when the role involved nudes, was that I would be willing to do anything because I did it in that series
“What people didn’t realize is that I agreed on specific conditions and things just for that particular project”, explains Emmanuel. “And that doesn’t necessarily have to apply to all projects.”
How will you remember if you were one of the millions of loyal viewers who Game of Thrones had around the world, Missandei was introduced in the third season of the series as one of the slaves freed by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and was chosen by the Mother of Dragons herself as his faithful advisor and assistant thanks to her ability to speak. Many languages. Throughout the seasons, Missandei would develop a close relationship with Gray Worm, which would end up becoming a love story that was received with open arms by fans.
Even if Game of Thrones never had special modesty when addressing the sexuality of his characters, the truth is that, Throughout his eight seasons of career, he was the subject of controversy on several occasions. Both for the inclusion in the plots of scenes of sexual violence against women that were completely unnecessary for the final result, as well as for expendable nudes such as those starring Daenerys in the first season and some scenes from Littlefinger’s brothel, for example.
In any case, and Emilia Clarke has also made it clear beforehand, the intimate and nude scenes that each interpreter agrees to with a project are signed according to specific conditions and, in no way, can they be extrapolated to another project.
