Jack Gleeson Quotes
Both villains and heroes need to have a steadfast belief in themselves.
I try to be a nice person, but it's difficult sometimes.
I'm happy to sacrifice a big pay cheque for my happiness, if that's not too corny a thing to say. It's probably more naive than mature to say that, maybe, but that's how I feel.
Ever since my mother sent me to Saturday morning grammar classes when I was 7, I wanted to become a famous actor. I loved the idea of captivating an audience and moving them truly through performance, but more importantly being recognized and heavily lauded for that talent.
Having one's image, and effectively, life, democratized, dehumanizes and sometimes objectifies it into an entertainment product. What sort of valuation of the ego would one have once you've let it been preyed upon by the public for years and years? Perhaps, it becomes truly just skin and bones.
I think audiences will always like bad guys who kill for no apparent reason. We just like to hate them.

Interviews are good if you want to be an actor because they raise your profile.
It's interesting sometimes when an audience can empathize with a villain.
Celebrities become excluded from everyday life, kind of in exile in an echelon that is deemed better, anyway: Life of celebrity, all the fame and glamor.

I wanted to be an academic when I was 19 or 20. But, I've gone off that idea. The lifestyle is kind of lonely and isolated. I don't think that would suit me.
If I were to have a dream job, it would probably be a poet. Then again, I don't think I'm a very good poet!
I find it slightly uncomfortable to see my face on a bus or a poster. I like just being known by my friends and family.
I read my sister's diary when I was 7. She was, I think, 13. It was awful to read it.
I'd like to be an academic, a philosophy lecturer if possible. I'd do a Masters in Ancient Hebrew maybe, and a Ph.D. hopefully, if I get in.
I've been acting since age 8. I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to.
I've never seen anyone die. It's hard to imagine what it would be like.
The lifestyle that comes with being an actor in a successful TV show isn't something I gravitate toward.
When you make a living from something, it changes your relationship with it.
