Her Game Of Thrones last season introduced her to American audiences, and now British actress Nathalie Emmanuel will become even more familiar Stateside, as she’s been cast in the next Fast & Furious installment, Fast & Furious 7, which is already in development under James Wan’s direction, for a July 2014 release date from Universal.

Ms Emmanuel will likely be rolling with the good guys, but no confirmation of that yet.

In Game Of Thrones, she played child slave Missandei, who worked as a translator.

A little digging revealed that the 24 year old actress has done mostly TV in the UK, and may be best known for her role in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, which she was on from 2006 to 2010. She also appeared in one episode of Misfits, season 3.

So this may become Nathalie’s highest-profile role to date (depending on how much screen time her character gets of course) giving her even further international exposure (the Fast & Furious movies have done very well domestically and overseas).
