Video: Game of Thrones' Jack 'King Joffrey' Gleeson Discusses Being Evil

21 year old Jack Gleeson plays Prince, then King Joffrey in Game of Thrones. You have to admire Gleeson's acting ability. He has brought to life a character who is so despised that, I'm convinced, a segment of the audience tunes in every week just in the hope that they will get to see him die.

In a recent interview with GQ, Gleeson discussed his favorite villains and how he gets into the headspace of an evil despot. The one question he doesn't answer, that I wish they would have asked is what's next? He is obviously a talented young actor but he may have a hard time moving on after 'Thrones in a world where millions of people want to punch him in the face (and may not discriminate between actor and character.)
