Nathalie Emmanuel also did a lot of prep work to get into character.
In director Jessica M. Thompson’s The Invitation, a young woman becomes entangled in a vampire coven. This is her take on the brides of Dracula, a revisionist look at where the brides come from and how they fall under the vampire’s spell. Nathalie Emmanuel of Game of Thrones fame leads the film as the unsuspecting young woman who becomes enamored with a wealthy, handsome man, played by Thomas Doherty, who has a taste for blood.
Read the full synopsis below:
After the death of her mother and having no other known relatives, Evie (Nathalie Emmanuel) takes a DNA test…and discovers a long-lost cousin she never knew she had.
