Been wondering about this for awhile now.

Spoiler for the above topic:
I've been wondering what it is like for an actor to play a hated character so well that everyone not only wants them dead but celebrate at their character's demise?  icon_biggrin  Any interviews with him along those lines?

Jack Gleeson is very media shy, but he says he enjoys playing Joffrey, and that people he meet are nice to him. I don't think he's had much trouble with people confusing him for his role.

Wasn't thinking there would be any confusion... just more of an interest in the relationship between the actor and the role when playing someone like this character. Found this interesting and spoiler filled interview on the very subject.  icon_cool

And it seems he is retiring from acting.

He's great at making you hate him, but in every interview or article I've read featuring the actor, he always comes across as just a really nice kid.  Even his reasons for quitting acting (to become an academic) are down to earth and sensible.

He did sum things up quite succinctly at the end of the interview.  icon_wink

The actress who plays Cersei (Lena Headey) does an amazing job.  She's so unlikable.  Book spoiler about Cersei:
Spoiler for Hiden:
It will be interesting to see how she's portrayed when the show gets into the book 4 content told from her point of view.


Jack Gleason deserves a standing ovation for his work as Joffrey.  I hated him in the books, but wow, Gleason really brought him to life.

Another books 3-5 spoiler:  
Spoiler for Hiden:
The timeline is starting to get screwy.  The stuff happening on the show in the North with Bolten and Theon are from book 5 right?  But the events happening South at King's Landing are from book 3?

Spoiler for Hiden:
It's not screwy at all. Expect Ramsay and Roose to reach Winterfell by the end of this season (or maybe the beginning of the next one). Season 5 is likely going to cover the events of both book 4 and 5 for all the primary characters, so the two stories you mention will get synchronized again by that time. Not that they are connected at all in the books, so it's hard to tell when one happened in relation to another. Remember, the show tells the story chronologically, but the books jump wildly and seemingly randomly back and forth in time.
