    King Joffrey From "Game Of Thrones" Wants To Quit Acting At The End Of His Reign Of Terror

    Jack Gleeson would like to be a humanitarian.

    Jack Gleeson, who plays nasty child-king Joffrey in Game Of Thrones says he is giving up acting when he is done with the show.


    When the show finishes, or if his character is killed off before then, the 21-year-old says he is planning a career change. Following a trip to Haiti with aid agency Goal, he said that he would like to devote time to humanitarian works.

    He said of his decision.

    "[Acting} was always a recreation beforehand, but when I started doing Game Of Thrones perhaps the reality was made too real for me... The lifestyle that comes with being an actor in a successful TV show is not something I gravitate towards."

    So fans might be feeling a bit like this right now.
