Game of Thrones actor Jack Gleeson says all he wanted to do was to grow up and star in a big film or TV show

Game of Thrones boasted a host of intriguing and remarkable villains, that varied from the cunning Tywin Lannister to downright sadistic Ramsay Bolton. The actors did their job so perfectly, the viewers loved to hate them. One of the youngest and most memorable villains of the show was Joffrey Baratheon, played by actor Jack Gleeson. Jack Gleeson was in his early twenties when his character was killed off in Season 4 Episode 2, and fans recount it as one of the most satisfying death scenes on the show ever. Nonetheless, after the show, Gleeson decided to step away from the limelight, and we can understand why.

Gleeson is spending most of his time working in theatres. After a long day of rehearsals for the Druid production of Chekhov’s The Seagull, he spoke to The Independent for an interview. He recalled, “All I wanted to do growing up was to act in a big film or TV show and I achieved my utmost dream. I’m not a fit man by any stretch of the imagination. This is just rehearsals. I’m sure I’ll be absolutely wrecked after every single show, all the adrenaline pulsing through you.”

He added, “My part [Konstantin], he’s not on stage for the whole thing but it’s going to be in Coole Park [in Galway], outside, so even when you’re off stage, you still have to be present. You can’t go to the toilet or anything. But in terms of acting fitness or feeling rusty, yeah, definitely.”

Having played memorable roles in The Dark Knight and Game of Thrones, we can surely say Gleeson has accomplished everything he has wished for. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
