‘Game of Thrones’ King Joffrey to quit acting?

Actor Jack Gleeson said he’d like to quit acting professionally and focus on charity work.

“Game of Thrones” actor Jack Gleeson said he plans to quit acting and focus on charity work after his role as King Joffrey Baratheon on the HBO series ends.The 21-year-old Irish actor, who studies philosophy and theology at Dublin’s Trinity College, told Ireland’s The Independent he doesn’t want to act professionally after he done with the fantasy.

“It was always a recreation beforehand, but when I started doing Game of Thrones perhaps the reality was made too real for me,” he said. “The lifestyle that comes with being an actor in a successful TV show isn’t something I gravitate towards.”

Gleeson plays King Joffrey on the show, inspired by a series of books written by George R.R. Martin.

“You tend to abstract yourself from the creepiness of [the character] when you’re playing it, but when you see it on television it sends shivers down my spine,” Gleeson said. “I would like to try and defend [the character], but I would have a pretty hard job doing it. I suppose he’s the product of his context and his family. In terms of redeemable qualities, there wouldn’t be many.”

Instead of acting Gleeson wants to focus on charity work. He recently returned from a trip to Haiti with aid agency Goal.

“Since going to Trinity and garnering an interest in philosophy and with Goal and my theatre company I’ve kind of just re-evaluated what I want to do,” he said. “I’m 21, so it’s hard to decide what kind of course life will take.””I’d been looking to use the celebrity I’ve got from the show to bring awareness for causes Goal supports,” Gleeson added. “I had the connection with the organization through my uncle, Tim Gleeson, and he worked with Goal in the 1980s.

‘Walking Dead’ studio confirms ‘Game of Thrones’ video game series for 2014


Telltale Games, the studio behind the award-winning video game based on The Walking Dead, has said that it will give the same treatment to HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones. The news confirms a rumor reported by IGN last month. As with other Telltale releases such as The Walking Dead and the recently released The Wolf Among Us, the Game of Thrones title will be an episodic series, and is said to start in 2014.

Telltale says it’s working with HBO on the game series, suggesting it will bear more similarity to the TV show than George R. R. Martin’s original A Song of Ice and Fire books. “We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors during the announcement at the VGX 2013 awards show. “We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters — who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world.”

Telltale’s effort isn’t the first to be based on the smash hit series — a mediocre action RPG was released last year, and a free-to-play MMO is in the works — but the developer’s proven formula of interactive, character-driven storytelling may well be the best fit.
