Game of Thrones' Jack Gleeson is making his return to TV
Six years after Game of Thrones, Jack Gleeson is making his return to TV.
The 27-year-old - who played King Joffrey for the first few seasons of the HBO epic - has joined the cast of the BBC series Out of Her Mind.
The six-part BBC Two comedy series stars Sara Pascoe - who also wrote the series - as well as Riviera's Juliet Stevenson, The Split's Fiona Button, Doctor Foster's Navin Chowdhry, Peep Show's Cariad Lloyd and rapper Scroobius Pip.
Out Of Her Mind is described as exploring heartbreak, family and how to survive them. The series subverts the traditional sitcom format by combining eccentric characters, animation, and scientific explanation.
