Nathalie Emmanuel feels the final season of Game of Thrones is worth waiting for as it will blow everyone's mind. The actor says it will bring closure to all the stories in an exciting, but heartbreaking way.

"I think what we can expect from the final season of GoT is just a real push. Like in the last couple of seasons, we have seen the pace of the show increase with the stakes getting higher and higher. There are so many storylines that have to come to conclusion. We have to play them out, so the pace of the show is continuing on that sense," Emmanuel told IANS over the phone.

"There are so many characters and stories that haven't found their conclusion. So, this season is going to be incredibly satisfying for people. It is going to be incredibly exciting and heartbreaking."

Game of Thrones, which brings the story from George RR Martin's novels about the quest to claim the Iron Throne alive, is known for twists and turns, ruthless killing scenes, unexpected deaths all wrapped up with emotion and drama.

Emmanuel says the final season will bring all of it back -- but in a bigger and intense way. "All of the things that you expect from Game of Thrones, but at the same time since it is the last one, the emotions will be so much more intense. I am very excited for people to see it. We have been working so hard on it. The production is finished now."

The actor essays the role of Missandei -- a close confidant of Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen. The show, which started with the first season back in 2011, will conclude with season 8 in 2019. "It took us longer to shoot this season than any of the seasons," she said.

The show brought actors such as Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iwan Rheon into spotlight, making them global stars.

Emmanuel is confident about the final chapter. "I feel like people will have their mind blown when they watch the final one."
