Why Is Jack Gleeson Quitting Acting?

Good question! Jack Gleeson, who did such a phenomenal job making Joffrey the most enjoyable character to hate on TV, has said that he's done acting professionally now that Game of Thrones is over. Why? Simple: He's being doing it since he was eight (did you know he was also in Batman Begins?), and he just doesn't enjoy it in the same way anymore. Sounds like a good reason to us!

As for what's next, Jack says he's not sure. Of course, he hasn't even graduated from college yet, so there's no reason for him to have it all figured out.

In case you missed the memo: No, despite having the same last name, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon) are not related. "Snow" is the surname given to bastards born to noble houses in the North, to, well, mark them as bastards.

Each region of the Kingdom has a different bastard surname, connected to some element of the land from that area. For instance, in Dorne the bastard surname is "Sand," which you may recognize from Oberyn's paramour, Ellaria Sand.

Is Margaery Tyrell Queen?

Some fans are wondering if Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) is queen. As we've seen recently, even Marg doesn't quite know the answer to that. She did marry Joffrey before he died, but they didn't consummate the marriage, and now there's a new king, anyway. That's why she's so intent on making sure she weds Tommen: She wants to make sure she gets to be, and stay, queen.
