Games Of Thrones is one of the most highly-esteemed shows on television, and the actors who play those emotionally-dense roles are immensely praised for their work. It seems as if it would be impossible for them to leave the spotlight— yet one remarkable young man has managed to.

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.

Celebrity Culture: Gleeson’s Rejection Of Fame

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.

Gleeson believes that good actors connect with their characters emotionally. He says he’s rather numb in character. And it’s no wonder— as much as its given him, Gleeson could care less about Game Of Thrones. Perhaps this emotional detachment is what makes him so good at his malicious character. But, the young man has his sights set on a new future plan.

Boredom To Happiness: An Under-The-Radar Lifestyle

Having gotten to the point where he no longer enjoys acting, Gleeson has begun to focus on leading a chilled-out normal lifestyle. The Dublin-based young man studied theology and philosophy after departing from Game Of Thrones and is now essentially out of the spotlight. But if you’re lucky, you may catch him at a fan event or two.
