Game of Thrones may be hurtling towards an ending, but more than a few of its current stars laying the groundwork for post-HBO success. Take Nathalie Emmanuel, aka Missandei. Emmanuel made her first appearance in the tremendously successful Fast and the Furious franchise in last year’s Furious 7, playing hacker Ramsey (I assume the Game of Thrones connection there is a coincidence). She’s also be The Fate of the Furious, the next installment. Check out the trailer:
Also appearing in the film (but not in the trailer): Kristofer Hivju, everyone’s favorite red-haired wildling/hotel spokesman. Hivju’s role is bit a of mystery, although according to MovieWeb he’ll play the principal henchman of the film’s main villain, played by Charlize Theron. Sounds like the perfect role for Hivju. Hopefully we’ll get to see him defy the laws of physics like the rest of the cast.
When not working on her film career, Emmanuel has been making the rounds with Game of Thrones alumni. Here she is dining with Nonso Anozie, aka Xaro Xhoan Daxos, last seen being locked in his own treasure vault in Season 2.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel’s onscreen lover Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) released a new music video from his Mind the Gap EP.
Surprised to hear Grey Worm laying down smooth R&B beats? In addition to acting, he’s also a working musician who’s released material under the name Raleigh Ritchie.
Elsewhere, Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) and Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar) attended the European Film Awards in Wrocław, Poland. Apparently, the duo had a good time thanks to unlimited adult beverages.
Elsewhere, Alfie Allen got some time in on the ice.
Ah, but who had the better time? Him or Emilia Clarke?
Finally, Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella) has a new gig. She’s moved on to SyFy’s 12 Monkeys series.
The time-traveling series is based off the 1995 movie of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis. According to Nerdist, Waddingham will play Magdalena, who’s duty it is to protect another character named the Witness. Did we mention Waddingham will once more be part of a cult?
Anyway, this probably means that Unella won’t be appearing in Game of Thrones Season 7. But we could have guessed that, considering her state when we left her.
