"I'd take his head off!"
In the last episode of the final season, Harrington’s character Jon Snow was seen killing Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) – who Anderson’s character, Grey Worm, was set to protect as head of her army.
As punishment for killing the Mother of Dragons, Snow was sent to the Night’s Watch as a compromise. Now, in a new interview with Metro, Anderson says this wasn’t punishment enough.
“I’d take his head off!” Anderson said. “I feel like from Grey Worm’s perspective, it’s just there had been enough violence by that point.”
He continued: “Grey Worm was all about peace at that point. He was like, ‘Right, I just want to go and chill on an island and fulfil my promise to Missandei’. Personally I feel like he got off a bit lightly.”

According to sources speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the prequel will take place 300 years before the hit HBO show – which came to an end this year – and will focus on Fire & Blood, author George R. R. Martin’s book about the Targaryens.
Further sources, speaking to Deadline, suggest this prequel will come directly from Martin and executive producer Ryan Condal.
One other Game of Thrones prequel has already started filming, with John Simm, Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse on board.
