Vegan Game Of Thrones star Natalie Emmanuel is looking for a personal trainer.

The actor took to social media as part of her search for a trainer who fulfilled some specific criteria.

Emmanuel, who plays Daenerys Targaryen's sidekick Missandei in the HBO fantasy series, wrote: "London based PTs [Personal Trainers] knowledgeable in vegan sports nutrition... make yourselves known."

While a few candidates stepped forward, it is not yet known whether any of them made the cut.

The sporty star has spoken out about how she fuels herself on a plant-based diet.

Speaking to Women's Health magazine last year, she said: "I do like protein shake. "I'll use a plant-based protein. Sometimes if I know I'm training in the morning, I'll make something that's packed with calories.

"I'll put a banana in it, a bit of almond milk or coconut water, spinach.

"I also like a bit of macha powder in there – all of that fun stuff! Add a bit of vegan protein powder and that would be my shake."
