“Game of Thrones” and “Fast & Furious” Star Nathalie Emmanuel for Shape Magazine

Posted on April 02, 2020

Nathalie Emmanuel has a golden outlook on life. While her return to the big screen in the ninth installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise has been put on hold, Shape’s May cover star reveals how she’s mastered the jet-set life at her own speed.



On her transportation confession: “I actually can’t legally drive. That makes me laugh out loud, considering I’ve done three movies about car racing. I mean, Dame Helen Mirren [her “F9” co-star] takes the Tube. If she can, so can we all.”

On the truth behind being an introvert: “People often think that if you’re introverted, it means that you don’t like people, you don’t like being sociable, you’re shy and not very confident. But that’s just not true. It’s about how you recharge and comeback to yourself and what you need to do that.”

On when it all gets to be too much: “For a number of years, I would get really worked up or emotional or find myself exhausted. Now, instead of consuming myself with all the things I’ve got to do, I compartmentalize the day into what I have to do next. OK, I have to get showered. Done that, now what?” “You can get so caught up in all the worry. But actually, there are all these great things to be excited and positive about—you just have to remind yourself of that.”

On creating confidence: “I need confidence to do my job. For me, that comes from having the right conversations with myself before the day starts and then throughout the day, too.” “When I need to generate confidence, I just remind myself that I’ve worked hard to get here and be here.”
