Sex Education already had an enormous cast, with Dan Levy appearing in the final season for a cameo – but he wasn’t the only celebrity.
Season 4 also had a well-known Game of Thrones actor, although it does not appear that many people noticed him.
But we can confirm that Jack Gleeson does appear in the last episode of the Netflix drama, looking very different from his character Joffrey Baratheon.
Dodgy Mo, a friend of Sean’s, aka the similarly dodgy brother of Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey), is played by Jack.
Of course, the Irish actor, 31, is most known for his portrayal of the villainous King Joffrey I, but it’s remarkable what a new moustache and hair colour can do for a man’s image.
He has quite the untamed locks and some really fascinating facial hair in Sex Education.
Taking to Twitter, some viewers who were able to locate him had to make a double take.
‘Oh my dayssssss. Dodgy Mo is Jeffery Baratheon?!!!! That’s insaneeeeee’, one person tweeted.
‘Wait am I tripping or is Dodgy Mo Joffrey from GOT?’, asked another.
‘I KEPT WONDERING WHERE I KNEW DODGY MO FROM ONLY TO REALISE THATS JACK GLEESON OMG’, one penned.
Joffrey’s death scene in Game of Thrones will be remembered forever, but Jack hasn’t done much acting since his three-year time on the HBO show.
He previously claimed that he fell out of love with playing following his star role in Game of Thrones, telling students at University College Dublin: ‘It really boils down to just not receiving as much fun as I did from acting as I used to.
‘I started acting when I was eight and really really loved it, you know.
‘All I wanted to be was an actor when I grew up.
‘For some reason, I don’t know, it became a bit kind of mechanical and less kind of passionate when I started Game of Thrones.’
While there are many newcomers for the last season of Sex Education, many returning favourites are also present.
Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), Eric Effiong (Ncuti Gatwa), Aimee Gibbs (Aimee Lou Wood), Adam Groff (Connor Swindells), Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson), and others return to finish the series on a high note, with the students now attending a new college called Cavendish and facing numerous trials and tribulations.
Meanwhile, Jean has a new baby to nurture, Maeve is studying in the United States, Adam’s parents are divorcing, and a new sex therapist has arrived in town.
After four seasons, the last eight episodes signal the conclusion of a remarkable era – however there’s a chance we haven’t seen the last of Sex Ed.

‘It’s the end as we know it,’ creator Laurie Nunnshe told Netflix Tudum, admitting that while it wasn’t set in stone as she and the writing steam started penning the season, things started to take shape.
She added: ‘During that process, it just started to feel very clear that the stories were coming to an end, the characters were being left in a place that I felt really good about it.
‘I felt happy for them, and I felt like I’ve said everything that I want to say with these characters at this time.’
However, after Laurie has taken ‘a pause’ to work on other projects, she would not rule out Sex Education spin-offs, offering followers optimism.
‘I’m definitely taking a break and thinking about other things,’ she said.
‘But Moordale is a really rich world, and writing about teenagers is always a lot of fun. So, I think that there’s always potential for more to be explored in that world.’
Sex Education season 4 is now streaming on Netflix.
