Jacob Anderson is an English actor and musician best known for his portrayal of Grey Worm in the Emmy-winning television series Game of Thrones. Grey Worm commanded Daenerys Targaryen’s Unsullied Army. Anderson was on the show from season 3 through season 8. He was elevated to the main cast in the finale.

Anderson is expected to play Louis de Pointe du Lac in the film adaptation of Anne Rice’s book Interview With the Vampire. It all starts with a black man’s restrictions in 1910 New Orleans, and the subsequent alluring invitation of Lestat de Lioncourt to join him as his vampire companion.
Anderson revealed to Collider about his character:
“I appreciate how much Louis suffers throughout the novel. I like how he is lamenting his previous life, and our Louis is very much the same. But I’d say our Louis packs a little more punch. I believe he is more likely to attack Lestat. He’s a little less moody at first, but we get there! We get there, but I think he’s got a little more bite.”
Anderson’s character is shown chatting to reporter Daniel Molloy about Lestat de Lioncourt in the Interview With the Vampire trailer, saying, “He is my killer, my mentor, my lover, and my creator.”
