“We’ve turned my brain into a theme-park, and everyone’s invited! The cast are incredible and I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve made,” Pascoe said.
After his stint on GoT, Gleeson had said that he would quit acting to pursue an academic career path, but he later got “off that idea”.
Out Of Her Mind will premiere on BBC Two later this year.
