Nathalie Emmanuel - who plays Missandei, Daenerys' trusted advisor, on the HBO series Game of Thrones - has said that a plant-based diet helps her stay healthy and fit.
The British actor has revealed in an interview with Shape Magazine that eating plant-based helps her work long hours.
Talking about her decision of going vegan four years ago, Emmanuel said she decided 'it was important to maintain a certain level of health and fitness'.
The Game of Thrones star is 'all about wellness'.
"If you're lethargic and not taking care of yourself, your body has to work 10 times harder on long, busy days.
"I try to stay away from processed foods. I love yoga, boxing, and running," she said.
The actress doesn't believe in deprivation, saying that 'the more you silence your cravings, the bigger they become' - and gives in to vegan chocolate every once in a while.
Emmanuel frequently takes to social media to share her favorite vegan meals.
