With the fourth season of "Game of Thrones" nearing its highly anticipated premiere, Jack Gleeson fronted Entertainment Weekly magazine's latest issue.

Dressed in his King Joffrey attire, the 21-year-old actor flashed his evil smirk with the headline "King of Pain" across the publication's front page.

Sharing a few details about the upcoming season, showrunner David Benioff stated, "It's just more intense than it ever has been. We always before had breathing room episodes before. There's just no relaxing this season. If we can pull it off, it will top season 3."

In regards to changes in certain characters, actress Rose Leslie said, "Particularly this season, and absolutely with [my character] Ygritte, there are so many characters out for blood."
