Starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones (2011-present), based on the series of books A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, Gleeson plays the role of the bullying and capricious prince Joffrey Baratheon, explaining that the biggest influence on his performance was Joaquin Phoenix’s role as Commodus in the epic movie Gladiator. He won the IGN People’s Choice Award for Best TV Villain in 2012. In 2013, he was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Young Actor in a TV Series, and was also nominated with the entire cast for the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series (2011 and 2013).
In 2014, Gleeson announced that once his role in Game of Thrones was over he would be retiring from acting.
