[스페셜경제= Dongsu Kim] For most of the show, Grey Worm has been established to be someone who’s only loyal to one cause alone: and that was serving Daenerys Targaryen. But in the Battle of Winterfell, fans get to see a side of Grey Worm (played by Jacob Anderson) that showcased the humanity he needed to bring his character into a full circle.


As he talked to Time, he shared that his humanity was brought out in the third episode because for the first time ever, Grey Worm was not only scared, but he was scared for something now, and had something to legitimately fight for.


“Missandei definitely represents Grey Worm’s fear of dying,” Anderson explains. “I really enjoyed that in episode three, you actually see Grey Worm scared. He’s got something to lose now.”


He also shares how many have become more inclined to think of death as the fate of many characters in the show that the real surprise is when they somehow manage to escape unscathed. Anderson doesn’t discount the fact that even if the fans expected some of the deaths, it was still painful, especially since the 8-year-run of Game of Thrones has taught him that people put a certain investment in these stories, in these characters, that the pain is still somehow visceral.


Time also asked him about the all-important people of color issue that the show has always been criticized for, but maintains that for the show, at least, there is some reasoning as to why this had been the strategy. Although he iterates that he understood why it’s what came off to the viewers, as he is a person of color himself.


“However, there is precedent in real wars with people of color being put on the front lines and being considered disposable. That kind of thing isn’t lost on me. Maybe in the world of Game of Thrones there is that,” he said.


When it came to that much-anticipated Naath trip he has with Missandei, though--one that GOT fans were glad might just actually happen given they both remained alive--Anderson says he does not think Grey Worm’s loyalties to Dany will be tested.


Missandei has always been the Dragon Queen’s close confidant, and Grey Worm knows that Missandei holds the same respect for their queen that the both of them would be happy enough to take the Naath trip until after Daenerys takes the throne.
