Flawless Irish King Jack Gleeson did a Q&A and remains as charming as ever.

Jack Gleeson aka King Joffrey from Game of Thrones & Collapsing Horse answers every question ever…

He does an impression of Charles Dance at around 4:50 and it is adorable. Lol.


Random highlights, although the whole thing is worth watching because he's really funny:
On stopping mainstream acting after GoT:
Jack: It really comes down to just not driving as much enjoyment from acting as I used to. I started acting when I was eight and really really loved it, you know, and all I wanted to be was an actor when I grew up. But for some reason, I don't know, it became kind of a mechanical and less passionate for me when I started Game of Thrones. I don't think it has anything to do with the way they film it, but I think when it became less of a recreation and more of a profession it kind of put more pressure on the acting itself. It made it kind of less enjoyable.

On relating to Joffrey:
Jack: I am technically a king; I'm the King of Ireland. I don't know if you got that memo. (obvs, we did)

On his least favorite word:
Jack: We discussed this earlier and I'm even revolted saying it in front of people, but... panties. It's just gross. I don't want to explain why, to be honest.

Creative turn on/turn off:
Jack: I do like to do some writing now and again, creative writing. Just sitting in a park or whatever, just sitting by a sunset... [turn off] One would be kind of sycofancy people flattering you or being patronizing to you.

Favorite curse word:
Jack: Something in ancient Hebrew (lol ofc). I think the only bad word I know in ancient Hebrew is 'feces'... Perhaps the 'c' word. I'm sorry, I like saying that sometimes.

On whether or not he'll continue reading the books:
Jack: Yeah, yeah sure... the honest answer is 'no', I'm sorry. I find them quite hard to read, there's a lot of names in them I can't keep track of. (LMAO)

On the cast members he hangs with most on-set:
Jack: For the first one or two [seasons] I would hang out with Rory McCann who plays The Hound loads 'cause he was just in all my scenes. We would be really close, and then his character kind of diverged from my character's storyline and we don't really see each other anymore [sad face]. But in general, you know like, Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner and now Natalie Dormer (this perf group of people rn)- I really like hanging out with those guys. But it really is just proportionate to the amount of time you spend with the actors. You're stuck in a room with them for twelve hours day, you're bound to get along.

On whether he's dating anyone (aka, here is my chance!):
Jack: [Very important question: Do you have a girlfriend?] I don't have a girlfriend, no. No, I don't. I'm free, I'm a free man. You can check out my dating website profile, Joffrey Loves the Babes. [Do you have a boyfriend, what's up?] Yes! Thank you! I was gonna say that I am straight, but I thought that was kind of a gender normative question. But no I don't have a boyfriend, thank you for asking.

On a recent prank played on Gwendoline Christie:
Jack: They made up a fake New York Times article in which it described her being really rude to a fan, and it was all about her being a bitch in real life and stuff. And David the creator was scrolling down and was like, "Gwen, what's up with this?" and she was like, "I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER THAT, I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER THAT." And she's like ringing up her publicist and stuff. It was really funny.

HEARTS IN MY EYES, TBH. And absolutely dead at that Gwen prank.

They look like they have such a blast together. And I'm sure it helps that they film in such a beautiful city with gorgeous weather as opposed to filming in cold ass Iceland, gorgeous as it may be.

alaynestone 9th-Oct-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
Perfect taste, imo.

He's so charming! I still want to smack the shit out of him though, thats how well he plays his role.

LMAO AT THAT GIF

And no, I can't take credit for that tumblr. The maintainers are really nice tho and obvs run a great blog, which is why I credit them whenever I post anything here because I get all my posts from them pretty much.

As soon as someone on here pointed out that he looked like Jack Frost, I can't unsee it. Not that I'm complaining, though.

He's so precious
dissident 9th-Oct-2013 05:09 am (UTC)
Uhm he is the nicest person in the world, WTF?

If you're talking about the newspaper prank, it was played on Gwendoline Christie (she plays Brienne of Tarth aka Jaime's traveling buddy), not Jack. I think playing a joke on Jack would be pretty anti-climatic, at this point, since he already gets plenty of grief.

The producers need to work on their pacing, not stupid behind-the-scenes jokes, tbh. They seem to do one on someone at least every year (Kit, Alfie, now Gwen) - hopefully it's just interns doing the work on these.

Did you reply to the correct comment? Because I was just stating how weird it is that Jack is so nice.

I don't watch Game of Thrones but he is so cute and funny. I love him for saying one of the questions was gender normative. Enlightened prince ♛

Baby boy never disappoints. Hearts in my eyes tbh.
Also, I can only imagine spending 12 hours locked in With Lena, Peter, Sophie and Natalie...such a hard hard life.
