Game of Thrones: Jack Gleeson is as delighted by [spoiler] as you are
Actor photobombed screening of his final episode
Game Of Thrones actor Jack Gleeson has been pictured laughing off the death of King Joffrey Baratheon, as he plots his early retirement from acting.
You couldn't stop Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston from lamenting how their Breaking Bad days were behind them when the show came to a close, but Gleeson seems unfazed by his exit from one of the biggest TV series ever.
A friend uploaded a photo of him shrugging it off as Joffrey coughed and spluttered onscreen, the culmination of the show's 'Purple Wedding' which saw the king poisoned.
The 21-year-old recently announced he will now retire from acting, which he only ever saw as a hobby anyway.
"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," he told Entertainment Weekly.
And as for the future, he added: "I don't know. Yeah. No idea. I have one year left in college. After that, I might do a post-graduate of some kind, but I don't know in what."
Game of Thrones continues next Sunday on Sky Atlantic.
