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).

    Wish it was an American black woman. I figured they would do something like this to fill a quota. Good luck to her. I've already let this series go.

    So the ban on black women from the Fast and Furious franchise has been lifted? Say it ain't so....

    She seems so adorable, so it is quite nice to see her get ahead in film and TV. Hopefully she opens the door for more UK people of color to crossover into the American market and eventually into the "mainstream."

    There need to be more sisters in The Fast and The Furious with speaking roles. Took them long enough ....

    The key word is "speaking role". That's why I never get excited just to see a sista or brotha on screen. Alot of times the studios are just trying to fill a quota. Take Faster for example that was directed by a brotha, George Tillman. The actress Michole White, from "I Will Follow", she played a reporter that didn't say a damn thing or do one interview after all that killing and shooting that was going on in Faster. Plus the Rock had the TV on mute when she was on. LMAO. I was like WTF? Then you had the Black pastor wife, ask "Is everything okay", and the black nurse, "He went down the hall". That's all we got from the sistas.LMAO
