Game of Thrones Star Dishes About Vegan Diet

Actress Nathalie Emmanuel—who plays interpreter Missandei on the wildly popular show—reveals that her vegan diet helps her work long hours.

In a recent interview with media outlet Shape, Nathalie Emmanuel—known for her role of Missandei on HBO series Game of Thrones—spoke about her decision to go vegan. “If you're lethargic and not taking care of yourself,” Emmanuel told Shape Magazine, “your body has to work 10 times harder on long, busy days, so I decided it was important to maintain a certain level of health and fitness. I became a vegan about four years ago, and I try to stay away from processed foods." The star was recently spotted at vegan eatery Modern Love Brooklyn and frequently posts her favorite vegan meals to her social media accounts.
