Jack Gleeson goes from world's most hated blonde child to liberated hippie sweetheart in one interview.


Nothing ominous about this... (via HBO)

Remember when we hated the imaginary character of King Joffrey even more than we hated Walter Palmer? He was a lying, cowardly, woman-abusing, wolf-murdering sociopath and everyone was very happy to watch him die a terrible death. On the show! The guy who played him is actually pretty dope.

After his spectacular exit from GoT, Jack Gleeson announced that he's leaving the spotlight entirely and pursuing a life of academia. Before he goes, he's doing one more weird play written with his Dublin-based collaborators, called Bears in Space, described as an allegorical puppet show for people of all ages. It's supposed to be about the enduring power of friendship, whereas we all know Game of Thrones is about the enduring power of boobies. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Gleeson talks about misogyny and nudity in entertainment in a way that'll make you say, "Crossbow? What crossbow?":
