Before “Game of Thrones” season 4 even starts, we are getting casting news for season 5 about a member of the cast who is being upgraded to series regular. The news comes along with a few spoilers as provided by Matt Carter on Feb. 7 so read on at your own risk.
Nathalie Emmanuel is being elevated to series regular for season 5 of “Game of Thrones” in spite of the fact we don’t have official word that there even be a season 5. We have no doubt there will be but until it’s official, there is always a risk.
Emmanuel plays Missandei, the former slave who is now personal assistant to Danaerys Targeryan. MIssandei offers counsel to Dany as she strategizes about taking back the Iron Throne.
This would seem to imply the Danaerys also survives season 4 unless the powers that be are planning to fashion a strong story about Missandei that is separate from Danaerys. In any case it’s great news for the actress and fans of her character.
