Los Angeles: "Game of Thrones" actress Nathalie Emmanuel, who will soon be seen in the new "Fast & Furious 8" movie, says swimming has changed her life for good.

Emmanuel has been signed by swimwear brand Speedo for their new #MAKE1KWET programme. The programme helps to become fitter and stronger while enjoying the benefits of a full body workout through swimming.

Talking about it, the actress said in a statement: "I've never been the most confident in the pool, but by following the MAKE 1K WET training plan I've already seen huge improvements in my fitness. By learning a few simple skills I'm much more capable in the water; I feel stronger, I've got more energy and I'm sleeping better. 

"What's more, I've seen how swimming has helped my overall fitness, I can now run harder and faster for longer."

The programme has been designed by former ITU triathlete and duathlete Annie Emmerson.

Emmanuel recently got back into swimming after learning to dive for a film role, which inspired her to read up on the benefits of swimming for running.
