‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Reveals He Wet His Pants as a Child Actor


Games of Thrones’ Jack Gleeson peed his pants as a child actor on set of Reign of Fire.

It’s been nearly three years since Jack Gleeson’s time on Game of Thrones came to a screeching halt. But even today, the film community and GOT fans have praised the young actor’s acting skills.

This past weekend, Gleeson was one of the speakers at New York Comic-Con, where he had a bit of an embarrassing story from his child acting days.

In 2002, Gleeson was one of nearly two dozen Irish kid actors involved in a scene in Reign of Fire, a feature film which dragons are reawakened in the present day and go to war with humans.

Gleeson says he remembers having to go to the bathroom while shooting, but was told by the crew to stay still. The nine-year-old actor gave it his best shot, but eventually could not hold it in any longer.

“I just kind of had to wet myself,” he said, according to MTV News. “I was like an eight-year-old or nine-year-old kid and I had to piss my pants on set of ‘Reign of Fire.’

“I tried to be as cool and collected as possible and then I acted my socks off. I didn’t let it affect my performance,” he added.

Gleeson said this moment, while very embarrassing, ended up being an important learning experience for him when it came to building endurance as an actor. He would later use this experience when it came to acting through discomfort several times on Game of Thrones.
