King Joffrey: Bold Role In Game Of Thrones

If you’re a die-hard Game Of Thrones fan, you probably love to hate Joffrey: the edgy, sadistic, and villainous Iron Throne king. However, after his character was suddenly poisoned and killed off, there hasn’t been much chatter from the 26-year-old actor who plays him. And his step back from the spotlight is no accident.

Jack Gleeson: An Accidental Actor

Jack Gleeson is the young Irish actor behind the daring character of Joffrey. But Gleeson didn’t purposely begin acting for the dream of fame and fortune. After taking a couple classes in acting out of sheer boredom, Gleeson found acting to be fun and slowly submerged himself into the world of acting. But stumbling into the scene didn’t come as a celebration for Gleeson.

Gleeson is not a fan of the culture of celebrities— and he never planned on becoming one. The actor is a mild personality that contrasts with the bold profession. Quite frankly, Gleeson doesn’t care much about making bank and is rather bored with acting. He’d rather be dedicating his time to something that makes him happy. And according to the actor himself, he doesn’t even think he’s good at the job.

But, the young man has his sights set on a new future plan.
