We weren’t expecting it. We didn’t want it. And yet, here we are. Missandei met her demise at the hands of Cersei in the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. And now, Nathalie Emmanuel, the actress who played Missandei, has posted an emotional tribute to her character and her time on the show.We’re definitely not crying. You are.
"It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath... The quiet and kind translator," Emmanuel wrote in a May 7th Instagram post. "A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice... and her one and only love. 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."
“@emilia_clarke GIRL!” Emmanuel continued. “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.”
“@raleighritchie…. Jacoooob! I literally cannot tell you what sharing the screen with you has meant to me,” Emmanuel went on to write. “I found performances I didn’t know I had inside me, simply because you gave me so much to work against. 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.”
She concluded her post by thanking the entire cast and crew, as well as fans, writing, “I like to think that, right now…. Missandei is sipping a rum on a beach somwhere [sic] in sky.”
Us right now:
We will never forget you, Missandei of Naath.
