British beauty Nathalie Emmanuel has enjoyed a steady rise in the acting industry over the years and is now probably best known for playing the role of Missandei in the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Throne. However, when you speak to Nathalie herself about what she is best known for, the actress will tell you that it is probably for her hair, which she is very proud of.
Emmanuel explained, "I think my hair is the first thing people recognize me for and I'm happy about that, because I think we've all gotten so used to women straightening and changing their natural hair. Wearing my natural hair wasn't really allowed when I was in primary school. So my hair was always slicked down or put in braids, sort of hidden away."
She then went on to add, "I think a lot of women with textured hair go through that same journey, where they want to chemically straighten their hair. And that's fine if that's what makes you happy, but I think many feel trapped by it."
It is definitely nice to see a Hollywood star deciding to go with the natural look, rather than resorting to having something done to herself, even if it is just her hair. We have slowly but surely become big fans of Nathalie Emmanuel and, not only is she a fantastic actress with a very bright future ahead of her in the business, but we also see her as a great role model for young girls all over the world.
