Jacob Anderson is not a very popular man, but we just need to use two words for you to know exactly who we are talking about. Grey Worm is one of the most recognizable characters in Game of Thrones and the man who brought the stoic presence and the silent furiosity to the character is none other than Jacob Anderson.
You can watch Jacob in the show and search for him on the internet, and you will find two very different persons. Yes, he is hidden with his emotions like Grey Worm, but that is where the similarities end because he smiles a lot, which is something Grey Worm does very little of.
Jacob was just an aspiring artist who appeared in a couple of good TV shows and movies, but the big break for his career arrived when he was hired to play the commander of the Unsullied. The battle-hardened slave-soldier was one of the most talented persons with a spear or knife in his hands, and he was chosen by Daenerys Targaryen to be her commander of the Unsullied after she freed him.
The show was an excellent outlet for his talent as he stated in an interview with MTV, he uses acting to get completely away from himself. Which is what he did in the show, he got away from himself and made a commander of an army a fan favorite. People may not know who Jacob Anderson is, but he made sure they find out after his appearance in the show.

Music is not something Jacob does in his pass time; it is his passion and something he is pursuing after his career in the hit TV show. The last acting role for the actor was the 2018 horror/world war II movie Overlord, and it is not because he is not getting any role in movies and TV shows, he is so talented anyone would love to have him but as for Jacob Anderson future role he is not very into acting right now.

The singer appeared in a song of the first album of UK grime icon Stormzy, the song was ‘Don’t Cry For Me,’ and it showed the height of fame he’s reached in his music career.
