GameofThrones star missnemmanuel is about to make her return to the big screen in the ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, but her career as a leading-lady is only getting started.

and hold it.“The workouts I do with my trainer in London condition me for those things. We focus on upper-body strength because that’s my weakness. We work different muscle groups. We do circuits where you perform five or six exercises for a minute each, take a break, and then do it again. I also run and do body-weight exercises, weights, and boxing—I like to mix it up. (Want a workout like Nathalie?

She Eats Only What She Can Pronounce“BecauseI’m veganand I have a gluten intolerance as well, when I find baking that is both vegan and gluten-free, it’s so exciting that I tend to go a bit over the top. In L.A., I go to this place called Erin McKenna’s Bakery and basically eat all the things.

That might mean reading a book or binge-watching a show when I get home. But sometimes I just want it to be quiet, to relax and sit and be still.

“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 come back to yourself and what you need to do that.
“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 get overwhelmed,I practice meditationor breathing with intention. It’s a slow breath in and out as I focus for a second. 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.”
