Can We Please Talk About How ‘Game Of Thrones’ Has An Afro-Latina Actress As One Of The Key Characters??

Missandei, Queen Daenerys Targaryen’s right-hand woman and best friend, is one of those secondary characters on “Game of Thrones” that has developed a cult following. Captured by slavers when she was a young girl and raised in indentured servitude, Missandei was freed by Daenerys with the intent on having her become her translator. Five seasons later, she has risen in the ranks to become Daenerys’s closest adviser and most steadfast champion.

As if we needed another reason to love Missandei, Nathalie Emmanuel, the actress who brings her to life, is actually of Dominican descent. That means that one of the best characters on “Thrones” is Afro-Latina! In honor of the return of GOT, we’ve compiled a list of 20 times Missandei was the best character on the addictive series. Take a peek below!
