Nathalie Emmanuel wants a ''heroic'' 'Game of Thrones' death.

The 26-year-old actress admitted she is already thinking about how she might be killed off in the HBO series -in which she plays handmaiden Missandei - and is hoping to make viewers sob is she does bow out.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''If I do die I'd want it to be something really cool - something that will make everyone cry. It would have to be something really heroic, like she sacrifices herself to save someone else, or she suddenly learns how to be an amazing swordsman and dies in an epic battle. That could be fun.''

The star - who joined the cast of the fantasy drama in 2013 - explained she has already convinced herself her character could die soon, especially after Kit Harington's character Jon Snow was spectacularly stabbed in the most recent series.

Speaking at the new cast launch of 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time', she explained: ''I think everyone knows that characters can die at any time, so I've kind of accepted that it could be my character's fate. But obviously I'd love to stay on the show because I love working there.''

'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' continues at Gielgud Theatre in London. For further information on the show visit
