Game Of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel on the Net-A-Porter's digital magazine PorterEdit

The actress, 30, told Net-A-Porter's digital magazine PorterEdit that the couple's relationship has opened the eyes of fans who are 'learning that there is another way to do things.'


Nathalie also reflected on Missandei's beheading earlier this season which stunned fans, as the star admitted she struggled to cope with the idea that her character was dead.

 Fans were delighted in Season Seven when Missandei and Grey Worm finally consummated their relationship, and Nathalie explained that she loved the themes behind their night of intimacy, as they were a stark contrast to the racy encounters the show was known for.
The star said: 'A lot of the sex on Game of Thrones is lust-filled, a bit like scratching an itch, whereas this was about trust and intimacy and acceptance of the other person fully and wholly.

'There were quite a few feminist articles written about the fact that it was all about Missandei's pleasure, but other people did ask: 'Well, how did they do it?' I'm like, guys, if you don't know another way to do things, then I feel like you should learn. Quickly.'
Nathalie also admitted that she rang her mum before filming her first ever sex scene, saying: 'I'm her baby, and she needs to be prepared for things like that.'

Sadly Missandei's relationship with Grey Worm was brutally cut short, after Cersei Lannister ordered The Mountain to behead her in the season's fourth episode.

Reflecting on fans' grief that their romance was over, Nathalie added: 'Some of the greatest love stories don't have a happy ending.

'People have commented that as soon as they saw Missandei and Grey Worm making plans, it was, like, ''Well, one of them is definitely going to die now.''
