Grey Worm made our hearts flutter when he finally professed his love to Missandei in the "Stormborn" episode of "Game of Thrones" season 7. Before he was sent off to invade House Lannister, the commander of the Unsullied army opened up about his feelings to Nathalie Emmanuel's character -- whom he considered his weakness.

Inside Missandei and Grey Worm's intimate scene

After giving us the most touching and romantic confession, Jacob Anderson's character initially tried to hold back when Missandei initiated physical affection and asked him to do the same.

As a eunuch who went through castration, Grey Worm hesitated until Missandei reassured him that she did not mind if he was lacking down there.

When asked about the scene, Nathalie Emmanuel explained what that part meant to the two "Game of Thrones" characters. Considering the situation of Grey Worm, the actress said that their intimacy was driven by trust and understanding, which resulted in their union.

She added that her character is afraid of missing the chance to express her feelings to Grey Worm before he went off on another mission. Hence, Missandei decided to make the first move. Nathalie Emmanuel's intimate scene with Jacob Anderson in the latest episode was her first nude scene in "Game of Thrones." In fact, the 28-year-old actress admitted that it took a lot of courage to perform that scene in the HBO series.

She said both of them felt "strange" when they read the script and learned that they had to be naked around each other. But despite their worries, the actors are grateful that the sensitive scene was "done really respectfully" for both of them.

The "Maze Runner" alum went on to confess that she was uncomfortable going nude in front of the cameras.

But with the help of her co-actors, staff and crew, Nathalie Emmanuel managed to pull off her intimate scene with Jacob Anderson. "I feel like we had a really great day showing these two characters being completely vulnerable with each other," she said -- according to Entertainment Weekly.
