Welcome to IainGlenFans.org. A website supporting the career of actor Iain Glen, most know for his roles as Jorah Mormont in HBO's Game of Thrones, Jack Taylor & Downton Abbey. This website will provide you with the most up to date news, projects, images and so much more on Iain's career and appearances. Many thanks for visiting and be sure to check back for updates.

Jorah Mormont has spent the last six years of Game of Thrones wandering Essos in pursuit of the unrequited love-of-his-life Daenerys Targaryen.

But when he’s not at the Mother of Dragons’ beck and call, actor Iain Glen has kept himself busy. While working on Thrones, Glen has simultaneously acted in a series of TV movies based on Ken Bruen’s Jack Taylor novels. Glen plays the title character, who Stuff describes as a “disgraced cop-turned-private detective” who “investigates those cases that other people, including the police, won’t investigate.” It sounds like Glen has quite the handle on the whole “disgraced but nevertheless honorable working man” thing.

Between Thrones and Jack Taylor, Glen has experience appearing in literary adaptations, although he acknowledges he doesn’t always physically resemble the characters as described in the books. As he tells it, that’s certainly the case with Jorah:

I don’t think I bear any physical resemblance whatsoever to the character that George R.R. Martin described in the books on which the series is based. I think he was a very dark-haired, wiry man with an ugly face–I’m not saying I don’t have an ugly face–and I think quite short and stocky […] But they probably thought it would be good if you could see why [Jorah and Daenerys] might get it together. If you had an ugly stump of a man who had no chance whatsoever and was fairly repellent then it would be harder for them to tell that story.
