'Game of Thrones' scoop: See who's becoming a series regular

GOT NATHALIE EMMANUEL

A certain Game of Thrones actor is getting boosted to series-regular status.

Nathalie Emmanuel, who played Daenerys Targaryen’s wary and clever translator Missandei last season, will be bumped to a series regular assuming the fantasy hit gets a fifth season (which seems like a pretty safe bet).

For the upcoming fourth season, her character is described as “a former slave with a gift for languages who becomes Daenerys’ confidant and trusted adviser.” Emmanuel has also landed a role in the upcoming Fast & Furious 7.

The promotion follows a similar recent boost for another actor playing a character from Dany’s circle – Michiel Huisman, the actor taking over the role of the charming warrior Daario Naharis, will likewise be elevated to a series regular in a presumed fifth season.

Going into this season, Thrones has 29 series regular characters, likely the most on television, a testament to its ambitious world-building storytelling. Thrones returns to HBO on April 6.
