Hail To The King: 5 Reasons Jack Gleeson’s Joffrey Vanished From ‘Game Of Thrones’

Published

on

For four seasons, Jack Gleeson ruled as King Joffrey on Game of Thrones. His performance earned him a plethora of accolades and fans. Following his exit in 2014, the rising star simply disappeared from the spotlight. Fortunately, we know why people don’t seem to hear from him these days.

Boredom In The Chair

Many people dream to perform on a major TV series. Gleeson found his time on Game of Thrones to be a bit dull. “You go and put your makeup on, put your costume on, wait in your caravan-trailer thing for an hour and then you go the set and you film for three minutes and then they change around the lights and the camera angle and you wait for an hour and then you film for another three minutes. It’s a very boring, tedious process,” he said.

Getting That Degree

Like most young actors, Gleeson knew having a college education is important. In 2012, he was accepted into Dublin’s Trinity College, and he had plans to become a teacher. “I’d like to be an academic, a philosophy lecturer if possible. I’d do a Masters in Ancient Hebrew maybe, and a Ph.D. hopefully, if I get in,” he said. Gleeson graduated in 2015.

A Whole New World

As expected, landing a big show like Game of Thrones can lead to a barrage of new fans. Unfortunately, he wasn’t too fond of having to transition into a different way of living. “The lifestyle that comes with being an actor in a successful TV show isn’t something I gravitate towards,” he said.

All The King’s Horses

“After ‘Game Of Thrones‘ I’d be happy to do some amateur plays but I don’t think I want to do any more professional acting,” Gleeson said in 2012. Two years later, Gleeson opened his own theatre company called Collapsing Horse. One play that he produced and starred in was a puppet show titled Bears in Space.

The Smell Of Money

Aside from the show, Gleeson makes a ton of money on the convention circuit. To him, having a huge bank account didn’t mean anything. “The thing about that level of acting is that it is very financially rewarding but for me it is a balancing act. I’m happy to sacrifice a big pay cheque for my happiness, if that’s not too corny a thing to say,” he said.
