‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Fears for Character’s Fate

It’s a lesson learned the hard way by many of our beloved Game of Thrones characters, but NO ONE is safe in Westeros. One actor is particularly concerned for his character’s fate. 

 

Jacob Anderson, who plays Grey Worm, has expressed his fears that his character could be next.

 

Vulture asked Anderson if he thinks Grey Worm may survive purely because it would avoid the trope of characters of color dying, he said: “Sometimes I’m like, ‘OK, that maybe isn’t going to keep me safe’.”

 

Grey Worm had a near-death experience in season 5 at the hands of the Sons of the Harpy. While Ser Barristan Selmy died, Grey Worm managed to survive–although the actor didn’t know it at the time.

I remember someone telling me something when I first started the show. Like, ‘If they call you in for prosthetics, assume that’s it’…I had a special costume fitting and they were like, ‘We’re going to put a stab rig in’. I was like, ‘Ugh, no-one comes back from a stabbing!’ That was a big surprise, to come back from that. They give us episodes in pieces. I had read all the episodes basically up until that scene, so I didn’t know if I was coming back or not. I didn’t know if I made it.

 

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that there are no prosthetics for Grey Worm in the upcoming season!
