Nathalie Emmanuel Hasnt Passed Driving Test in Real Life Despite Starring in Car Chase Movie F9
The ‘Game of Thrones’ alum admits she doesn’t have a driver’s license despite her role in the latest ‘Fast and Furious’ movie which is packed with action car chase.
AceShowbiz -“Fast 9” star Nathalie Emmanuel can’t believe she’s part of an action-packed car film because she hasn’t passing her driving test.
The “Game of Thrones” star admits she is still not licensed to drive so she can’t officially get behind the wheel.
“I never got my license,” she tells Essence. “It’s funny, because I don’t drive either, and it was fun to kind of laugh at that.”
“I started learning to drive when I was, like, 17 and then I started acting and I was just, like, busy. I was either busy or broke – that’s the life of an actor, really! And it’s only in recent years that I’ve actually had the time and the finances to do it, because it’s expensive. It’s expensive to learn in England, especially.”
“But now I’ve got a bit more time where I can maybe try and get an intensive course in and finally get it. I actually know how to drive a car, I just haven’t got the legal license that says you can do it without getting arrested.”
In the same interview, the actress talked about her move to U.S. She admitted she was forced to look for work Stateside because there were so few opportunities for her in her native UK.
“The British industry hasn’t always embraced us,” she claimed. “So many Black mixed people like myself have come out to America because the opportunities just weren’t here for us. What’s happened is a lot of talent has been lost to the States.”
