One of the best aspects of the Fast and Furious films are the diverse cast and its willingness to give newcomers a chance, and the filmmakers are definitely continuing in that tradition. Nathalie Emmanuel, previously best known for her recurring role on Game of Thrones, has joined the cast of the Fast and Furious 7.
Emmanuel played Missandei, Daenerys Targaryen's aid, on Game of Thrones, but that was a minor role at best. Deadline reports that Emmanuel will have a supposedly important supporting role on Fast and Furious 7, but she will be on the side of the good guys, which means she could be appearing in several sequels as well.
Other cast information for Fast and Furious 7 includes Ong Bak star Tony Jaa, who will make his English language debut in this film. The production will begin later this year, for a targeted release date of July 11, 2014.
Emmanuel has previously starred on several British television shows, including Hollyoaks, Casualty, and Misfits, and will next be seen in a film called the Tilbury Run. No doubt, we can expect a lot of things from this actress, and she's definitely a star in the making.
