Sophie Turner’s We Must Protect Jack Gleeson At All Costs Post
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street!I should be his bodyguard." [x]
I don’t think people do assess the level of Jack Gleeson’ talent. At a fairly young age, he was capable of playing a detestable and terrifying but perversely fascinating character with insane aplomb—quite capable of rendering the unpredictable madness and cruelty of Joffrey whilst still giving a sense of his ludicrous immaturity. In other words, he is perfect, and his performance certainly underrated by most.
Srsly, this guy has got chops. Every interview I have ever read says he is such a wonderful human being - kind, caring, and sensitive. The few things I have read with him make him seem like he has a wicked sense of humor. Now think about the fact that Joffery is EVERYTHING he is not in real life and yet you totally believe every moment of his performance so much that it’s hard to even imagine that he is anything but that spoiled insane jerk.
Just wow. I hope this guy keeps on acting because 0.o

Very thoughtful young man, I really respect him.
