Jack Gleeson Net Worth $8 Million
Jack Gleeson’s interest in acting dates back to an early age when he attended drama classes alongside his sisters Emma and Rachel, who are both actresses now. His first roles Jack played at the age of seven, in the Independent Theatre Workshop. Between 2004 and 2010, Jack attended Dublin’s Gonzaga College, and currently he studies theology and philosophy at Trinity College in Dublin from which he was rewarded with a scholarship in 2012. Jack is also a member of the DU Players, one of the Europe’s oldest drama societies.
Jack Gleeson’s acting career didn’t officially begin until 2002, when as a 10 year old kid he appeared in Rob Bowman’s fire-breathing dragon fantasy movie “Reign of Fire”. In the course of the next three years, Jack crafted his acting talent and managed to keep a continuous string of acting projects going as he was cast in more side roles in several short movies such as “Moving Day” (2002), “Fishtale” (2003) and “Tom Waits Made Me Cry” (2004). In 2005, Jack Gleeson also had a side roll in Christopher Nolan’s screening of Gotham City’s dark hero – “Batman Begins”, before appearing in the 2007 horror comedy “Shrooms”. All these engagements, besides helping Jack Gleeson to successfully enter the world of acting, provided the basis for his net worth.
Jack Gleeson also starred in “Killinaskully”, an Irish television comedy series which pictures, often bizarrely, everyday life situations of the residents of a fictional Irish village named Killinaskully. In 2009, Jack Gleeson starred in “A Shine of Rainbows”, a family drama about an orphan whose life is dramatically changed after meeting an unusual woman who teaches him to discover the magic of life. These involvements certainly made a positive impact on Jack Gleeson’s overall net worth.
The big breakthrough in Jack Gleeson’s career came in 2009 when he was chosen as part of the regular cast for the “Game of Thrones” TV series. It is based on a George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” epic fantasy novel series, about dynastic war between several family clans, and threats from unknown supernatural creatures, enriched with intrigues, affairs, treason and murder. The series, produced by HBO and aired since 2011, abundant with explicit scenes of violence and sex, quickly gained huge popularity among audiences around the world. Although, there have been six seasons so far, Jack Gleeson’s character Joffrey Baratheon, one of the most hated characters of the show, appeared only in the first four seasons before he was killed. Despite the monstrous nature of his role, Jack has been described by his colleagues as one of the nicest and friendliest actors they have cooperated with. The GoT involvement, besides bringing him a respectable amount of popularity, has also been the main source of Jack Gleeson’s net worth.
Since the leading role of Dara in the 2010 drama “All Good Children”, Jack Gleeson has been considered as “the pic’s big discovery” by Variety magazine. These achievements have helped him to add a sum to the overall size of his wealth.
Apart from his movie and TV acting career, Jack Gleeson is the founder of the Collapsing Horse Theater Company, based in Dublin, in which he also serves as the artistic director.
As he indicated in 2012, in 2014 Jack Gleeson confirmed that he would permanently retire from his acting career in order to pursue the academic one, although latest rumours are that he is having second thought.
