She has won over a legion of fans in her role as Missandei, Daenerys Targaryen's trusted adviser and devoted handmaiden on the hit TV show Game Of Thrones.
But Nathalie Emmanuel stole the limelight during Sunday night's episode of the fantasy drama, as she stripped off for a decidedly racy love scene in which her character prepared to say goodbye to a eunuch warrior she'd long admired.
The 28-year-old beauty bared her pert bosom as she and Jacob Anderson, who plays Unsullied solider Grey Worm, stripped completely naked for their characters' intimate moment, which came about after several seasons of simmering tension.

The scene between the two characters was all the more eyebrow-raising, as all Unsullied soldiers on the show are castrated as young boys, thus preventing them from engaging in any romantic relationships.
However, throughout recent seasons of the show, it had become clear that Grey Worm was developing feelings for former slave Missandei, which culminated in their love scene during episode two of the show's penultimate season.
As he flinched and asked Missandei not to remove the lower half of his clothing after she herself had stripped naked, she responded by insisting on seeing all of him.

In February, former Hollyoaks star Nathalie spoke with Grazia about Missandei and Grey Worm's blossoming love for each other, saying: '[It’s] the one pure love story that isn’t corrupted by, like, schemes and plots or whatever.
'I think what’s so beautiful about their relationship is that, out of their surroundings, they understand each other, because they’ve come from such horror.
'There’s a purity in their relationship… you know, like when you have an older couple, they’re not necessarily ripping each other’s clothes off – I mean, they might be, more to them if they are – but that sort of companionship and human intimacy, that’s definitely what they share.'
