Game of Thrones' Joffrey actor gets married to long-term girlfriend
| Last updated
The Game of Thrones actor who plays King Joffrey has tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend Roisin O'Mahony.
Jack Gleeson got married to the UK-based actor and comedian on Saturday, in what appeared to be a pretty intimate setting.
Parish priest Fr Patsy Lynch shared some snaps of the low-key wedding on Twitter and wrote: "Very simple, prayerful and dignified marriage ceremony for Film Celebrity Jason Gleeson and Roisin: The Glen Church."
Fr Lynch confirmed that the get-together was a pre-wedding ceremony and a second event is due to take place very soon.
He told Independent.ie: "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.
"We had a lovely, prayerful, dignified wedding ceremony.
"Jack text me this morning to say that it was such a wonderful, moving ceremony and afterwards they went for a meal."
Gleeson will next star in the upcoming Netflix thriller In the Land of Saints and Sinners, alongside the star-studded cast of Liam Neeson, Ciarán Hinds, Colm Meaney and Kerry Condon.
A synopsis by IMDb reads: "In a remote Irish village, a damaged Finbar is forced to fight for redemption after a lifetime of sins, but what price is he willing to pay? In the land of saints and sinners, some sins can't be buried."
Well it's safe to say that Gleeson will not be reprising his role as King Joffrey in the Game of Thrones spin-off House of the Dragon.
The new 10-part series is based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
The storyline of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D'Arcy) and her best friend Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) is at front and centre of the new show.
The characters' relationship highlights a divide that leads to the bloodiest civil war the country has seen.
The full starring cast includes Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Third Day and The Outsider), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint (It’s a Sin, Doctor Who), Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel and Rhys Ifans.
Additional cast members also include Milly Alcock, Bethany Antonia, Phoebe Campbell, Emily Carey, Harry Collett, Ryan Corr, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Wil Johnson, John Macmillan, Graham McTavish, Ewan Mitchell, Theo Nate, Matthew Needham, Bill Paterson, Phia Saban, Gavin Spokes, and Savannah Steyn.
The show is available to watch now on HBO and HBO Max in the US and Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
