Jack Gleeson of Country Cork, Ireland, who is widely known for playing noted hellspawn of twincest His Grace, Joffrey of the Houses Baratheon and Lannister, the First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdowms and Protector of the Realm, was invited to the Oxford Union where he spoke at length about the world of celebrity before a rapt crowd, who were undoubtedly impressed by his celebrity.

He says of his brush with the fame monster: “Since the show has aired I feel I’ve been given an insider look into an ever pervasive and yet often mysterious aspect of society, namely our culture of celebrity.”

Of his particular perspective he said: “Some of these reflection are unique in the sense that I’m in a unique position straddling the kind of cigarettes and books of a student, simultaneously with the cocaine and prostitutes of celebrity.”

Included in ‘reasons you simply must watch’ are the facts that he seems like a fecking lovely guy and there’s nothing quite as great as an Irish accent saying the word ‘cool’ [pronounced kewl]. He backs up some of his thoughts with sociological theories and, all things considered, you’ll definitely want to spend half an hour getting your Glees on:
