Actor Jack Gleeson, best known for his work on ‘Game of Thrones’, has married his girlfriend Roisin O’Mahony in a modest ceremony in Ireland.

The now 30yearold star said goodbye to the acclaimed series eight years ago, back in 2014 when he played the hated villain King Joffrey. For those familiar with his look from back then, it took a double glance to recognize Jack Gleeson in the present day. Also because his debut in production was in 2011, so exactly a decade ago.

Jack appears with his wellpreserved mustache and hair hanging to one side; a significantly different appearance than his character in “Game of Thrones”. The photos show a completely “normal” church, without great luxury and with an audience that apparently comes from the couple’s closest circle.

The star even announced an exit from acting after leaving the show, the Daily Star reported. “I’ve been working since I was eight years old. I just stopped liking it as much as I used to. And now there’s this prospect of doing it professionally, whereas up to now I’ve only ever done it for fun with my friends.”
