Actor Jack Gleeson, known for playing King Joffrey in “Game of Thrones”, hosted a film workshop in Kyiv on Thursday, February 16, which was livestreamed as a fundraiser for the Ukrainian military.

Actor Andriy Klymenko streamed the workshop to his YouTube channel, showing young local actors performing scenes from Game of Thrones before receiving advice and praise from Gleeson.

Gleeson had traveled to Ukraine to deliver a car bought by British volunteers, the Kyiv Post reported.

Gleeson said, "I want to support Ukraine in its fight for independence,” the outlet reported.

Ukrainian public broadcaster Suspilne reported that an air raid siren rang out as the acting workshop took place, prompting the Irish actor to say “the show must go on,” before continuing.

Viewers were given several methods of donating money, and Klymenko said all of the funds raised would go to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Credit: Andriy Klymenkov via Storyful
