Grey Worm and Missandei love story in Game of Thrones is one of the few adorable love-filled romances the show had to offer. After Rob and Talisa Stark, Jon Snow and Ygritte, Grey Worm and Missandei brought relief to an otherwise tale of betrayal, murder, and distorted relationships.
While GOT showrunners didn’t show much of their relationship, whatever little was offered was enough for fans to root for them. They began their journeys together in Astapor after Daenerys freed them from their earlier slave lives.
Missandei’s execution in the last episode had fans raging with anger, and all the more broken-hearted. And what was more painful than watching Missandei’s head chopped up was Grey Worm’s reaction watching the love of his life snatched away right in front of his eyes.
However, Missandei’s death and Grey Worm’s painful expression isn’t the last thing fans are going to remember about the duo. Actor Raleigh Ritchie who plays Grey Worm in the show made sure of that.
Taking on Twitter, the actor posted a video of him and Missandei actress Nathalie Emmanuel dancing to Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” while he sings holding a megaphone.
It’s adorable AF!

With all the anger that fans have been pouring over Missandei’s death, ‘The Mountain’ wanted to make sure everyone’s cool with him because, you know, he was the one to swing the sword!
Receiving so much love from fans had taken Nathalie Emmanuel by surprise.
Can I just say the response after Missandei’s demise has been overwhelming… Honestly I was calm about the whole thing but the outpouring of love, anger, sadness has left me all in my feelings… 😭❤️🤣 #yougotme #thankyou

It’s been one of my greatest joys playing Missandei of Naath… The quiet and kind translator. A brilliant woman who overcame so much suffering and found herself, her voice… and her one and only love. She represented so much for me, personally, that I have no choice but to carry the things she has taught me into my life going forward. Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to play this part… this life changing part… there are too many to list… @emilia_clarke GIRL! I love you… SO much. I’ve loved playing your BFF for the past 7 years. Thank you for being such a wonderful person in my life and a source of light and laughter. The Bad Ass Boss Lady Warrior Goddess club will live on forever 😂🙌🏽 @raleighritchie…. Jacoooob! I literally cannot tell you what sharing the screen with you has meant to me. I found performances I didn’t know I had inside me, simply because you gave me so much to work against. Playing Missandei and Grey Worm’s journey has been so special. I couldn’t have asked for a more generous and supportive co-star… Also… We’ve been out in these streets together boiiii🤣😂 negotiating so much but always having each other’s back. Thank you for all of it… you have been a dear friend at every point. To the entire cast and crew… You will always hold a special place in my heart. The love and energy we shared will be hard to match. I feel like I hit the jackpot meeting and working with you all. I love you. To the fans of the show, and of Missandei… Thank you for all the love and support… It’s been a pleasure playing her for you. I know last night was pretty intense for some of you so I invite you to participate in my fantasy where I like to think that, right now…. Missandei is sipping a rum on a beach somwhere in sky 😂… 🍹🌴 #andnowmywatchhasended #MissandeiofNaath #Dracarys #thankyouforsupportingme #RIPMissandei #isleofbutterflies #🦋 #illbeseeingyou
Not getting over the Grey Worm and Missandei romance anytime soon. All they wanted was to chill on the beach!
