Jack Gleeson talks ‘Game of Thrones’ locations, the Iron Throne, alternate deaths and ‘The Simpsons’

Talking at the Tampa Comic-Con, Jack Gleeson opened up to fans about Game of Thrones, his role as Joffrey Lanister/Barathean. Here’s the questions and remarks:

What do you think of the filming locations for the show?

“I loved locations like Croatia, the ruins and castles were cornered off for filming and there was such a beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea that’s typically crowded with tourists.”

ustv-game-of-thrones-s3-poster-joffreyHow do you prepare for such and evil role?

“It feels more approachable with Joffrey. He’s such a cartoonishly evil character that it makes it easier to step into the role.”

3 alternative deaths for your character?

“It would have been cool to be eaten by Direwolves. Maybe he could have just died in his sleep, you know age 67 and just went quietly. It would have also been cool to be killed by the Hound.”

Who would you like to see next on the Iron Throne?

“I used to say Hodor….but you know….so now I’d probably say Daenarys. I feel she would run the kingdom well.”

Where do you think Joffrey would be if he hadn’t been killed?

“Towards the end of his life, he was slowly coming under influence of his wife, Margaery (Tyrell), kind of going along with her schemes. Maybe he would’ve become a nice humanitarian completely by accident because of her.”

What do you geek out on?

“I’m actually a huge fan of the Simpson’s. It’s not anything cool like what you guys are in to here, but I know everything about it so that’s my thing.”
