Did You Know Grey Worm Is a Singer In Real Life? Check Out His Music!
On Game of Thrones, Grey Worm is known as the soft-spoken leader of the Unsullied who’s just learning how to speak the common tongue, in other words, he’s not the most eloquent character. But in real life, the actor who portrays Grey Worm, Jacob Anderson, is a singer who goes by the stage name Raleigh Ritchie. Who knew?!
According to the Huffington Post, the name Raleigh Ritchie comes from combining the names of two characters from Wes Anderson’s classic film, The Royal Tenenbaums: Raleigh St. Clair (Bill Murray) and Ritchie Tenenbaum (Luke Wilson), which automatically makes us huge fans. You can check out the video for Raleigh’s song, “Stronger than Ever” right here, then head on over to Raleigh’s website where you can download his new EP, “Black and Blue Point Point Two” for free!
Given Game of Thrones history of working musical acts into the show, with Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody and Coldplay’s Will Champion having cameos and band Sigur Ros actually performing in an episode, maybe Grey Worm can have a turn as Raleigh Ritchie, perhaps as a way to woo Missandei? Of course, he’s going to have to learn the Common Tongue a lot faster if he’s going to put out some of Raleigh’s smooth vocals!
