Jack Gleeson, the Game of Thrones actor who played King Joffrey, got married to his long-term girlfriend, Roisin O’Mahony, in a rather intimate setting. Their friend Patsy Lynch was responsible for sharing some of the snaps of the low-key wedding on Twitter, where he described the marriage ceremony as very simple and dignified.

Lynch also shared that the event he was at was a pre-wedding ceremony, and a second event was taking place soon after. Apparently, the real ceremony was going to take place in England, but the family chose Ballinskelligs, The Glen because for a pre-wedding ceremony because they had holidayed there for many years and had many happy memories there. He also shared how Jack texted him the next morning, saying that it was such a wonderful and moving ceremony. It seems that he also had a meal with the Game of Thrones star.
Although he took a break from acting after Game of Thrones, Gleeson will now star in the new Netflix thriller In the Land of Saints and Sinners. There he will be joined by a star-studded cast that includes Liam Neeson, Colm Meaney, Kerry Condon, and Ciarán Hinds. The synopsis of the movie says that it will take place in a remote Irish village where a damaged Finbar will be forced to fight for redemption after leading a lifetime of sins.
