The actor who plays Joffrey on Game of Thrones got a letter from the author congratulating him on how hated he is!
Jack Gleason is an Irish actor best known for playing Joffrey Baratheon (er… Lannister) on HBO’s massively popular show Game of Thrones. If you’ve ever watched the show for even just one episode, then you know how easy it is to hate Joffrey.
In fact, he plays the part so well that author of the book series, George R. R. Martin decided to write him a note that read, “Congratulations on your marvelous performance, everyone hates you.”
Most of the cast and crew go out of their way to note during interviews that Jack Gleason is actually a very nice guy, charming and friendly. His performance is so realistic that the producers are constantly afraid that a crazy drunk fan might want to punch him out in public!
