Video: Watch Game of Thrones' Joffrey give dramatic reading of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood

It's become a bit of a trend for actors to do dramatic readings of Taylor Swift's song lyrics - and now a Game of Thrones star has got in on the act.

Jack Gleeson who plays the young and cruel King of Westeros channeled his inner Swift as he delivered a dramatic reading of the hit song.

But in the style of Joffrey Baratheon he didn't sing - but put his signature mark on the lyrics following in the footsteps of Sir Ian McKellan who also created a similar video.

 

Game of Thrones returns to our screens on April 24 where fans hope the long awaited fate of Jon Snow will be revealed.

Long-standing character Jon was brutally stabbed and left dying in the snow at the end of the fifth series.

Despite the death scene, Harington has repeatedly been forced to quash rumours that Jon could secretly be alive and ready for a comeback.

Even the Duchess of Cornwall is keen to find out whether Kit Harington's Game Of Thrones character Jon Snow is truly dead, the actor has revealed.

And Harington even underwent a lie detector test on the Jonathan Ross show.

But Gleeson revealed that even after bumping into Kit Harington he was none the wiser to what was going to happen.

He told ABC: "He (Harington) was like, 'I can't tell you' ... so even I'm out of the loop."
