Game of Thrones is famous for making its female members disrobe at seemingly inappropriate moments. But now one of the stars of the HBO fantasy show has called for more male nudity.
Jacob Anderson, who plays Grey Worm the captain of Daenerys Targaryen’s "unsullied" army, said he\'s "all for" more men taking their clothes off. However, the actor added that he would not necessarily want to bare all himself, claiming: “I’d be too shy.”

Several actresses from the show have called for more male nudity, including Natalie Dormer, Carice van Houten, Natalia Tena and Sibel Kikelli, but Anderson may be one of the first actors to speak in favour of it.

will be hitting screens on 12 April but fans will be given a sneak peek next month when the special episode titled
Raleigh Ritchie’s new single "The Greatest" will be out in February.
