Game Of Thrones’s Joffrey Actor Jack Gleeson Marries His Long-Time Girlfriend (See Pics Inside) 

One of the most hated characters of the popular HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones was Joffrey Baratheon, played by Jack Gleeson, who is officially a married man. 

Jack Gleeson tied a knot with her long-time girlfriend, UK-based actress and comedian Roisin O’ Mahony, last Saturday, August 27th. 

It was a very intimate ceremony, quite private and small at The Sacred Heart Church situated in The Glen, Ballinskellings, Count Kerry in the country of Ireland. 

Father Patsy Lynch, the Parish priest, announced their wedding and shared the news out in the world and told media reporters about it. 

He said to the media reporters that the wedding that commenced on Saturday was actually a “pre-wedding ceremony”.

Father Lynch told the media reporters, “It’s a pre-wedding ceremony, the real ceremony will take place over in England, but the family have been holidaying down here in Ballinskelligs, The Glen, for many years and they have so many happy memories here.”

He also said “We had a lovely, prayerful, dignified wedding ceremony. Jack text me this morning to say that it was such a wonderful, moving ceremony and afterward they went for a meal.”

Jack Gleeson gained huge popularity and also got a lot of hate due to his highly convincing performance as Joffrey, one of the most sadistic and hateful characters in Game of Thrones.

He is also known for his roles in movies like Batman Begins where he played a little kid who meets Batman on the balcony, and also in the film Out of Her Mind

Father Lynch also shared about the wedding atmosphere and overall experience, and how intimate the event was. 

“There was a lovely, relaxed atmosphere right from the very beginning. “I think it was the sheer simplicity that just touched everyone, and everyone was happy and content… Everyone down here knows Jack and that shows they’re just part of the whole community. When I met him, it was as if we knew each other all our lives, he’s that kind of person. There’s nothing artificial.” He continued.

There is another photo where the couple is smiling for the camera and seems to enjoy the time, Jack wrapped his arms around his newlywed wife, and there is a humbling size of the audience surrounding them, seated at the church. 

Jack Gleeson in 2014 shared his plans about taking a hiatus from acting. In some of the earlier interviews, he also hinted that might not want to continue acting throughout his life.

He told Comicbook magazine back in 2014 “The answer isn’t interesting or long-winded” he answered on his future acting career. 

He continued, “I’ve been acting since age 8. I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to. And now there’s the prospect of doing it for a living, whereas up until now it was always something I did for recreation with my friends, or in the summer for some fun. I enjoyed it. When you make a living from something, it changes your relationship with it. It’s not like I hate it, it’s just not what I want to do.”

Similarly, something he also said to Entertainment Weekly, “I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to, about the same, adding “When you make a living from something, it changes your relationship with it. It’s not like I hate it, it’s just not what I want to do.”

However, after Game of Thrones, Jack Gleeson’s career is again at high with his back-to-back appearances in the first BBC Two series  Out of Her Mind and the upcoming Liam Neeson starring Netflix’s In the Land of Saints and Sinners coming next year. 

Well, we can only hope for more Jack Gleeson in the future as he is a really good actor, but for now, along with wishing him a happy married life.
