Jack Gleeson is famous for being an actor and playing the role of Joffrey Baratheon in the HBO television series Game of Thrones. He also starred in films such as Batman Begins and A Shine of Rainbows.
He started acting when he was only seven years old but he said he only did acting for a hobby and would like to become an academic and a philosophy lecturer if it’s going to be possible. He also said that he’d like to have a Master’s in Ancient Hebrew and a Ph.D. if given the opportunity.
Despite playing a monstrous role in the Game of Thrones, his castmates would describe him as one of the nicest and friendliest actors they have worked with. He also avoids swearing while in rehearsals and would only do it in the takes.
