Hollywood actor Jason Momoa has opened up on his struggles, saying he was completely in debt and starving immediately after his role on the hit series Game of Thrones.
In a recent interview with InStyle’s Christopher Bagley, Jason Momoa pointed out that it’s only recently that people have been thinking much about him at all.Though he first made his name as monosyllabic warlord Khal Drogo in Season 1 of Game of Thrones, in 2011, his character was killed off before the series became a hit, and Momoa spent several years struggling to pay the bills at the Topanga Canyon house he shares with his wife, actress Lisa Bonet, and their two kids.

“I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones. I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt”, Jason Momoa said.
Things improved in 2016, when Jason Momoa was cast in Justice League, and by the time he headlined the megahit Aquaman two years later, his zanily idiosyncratic Instagram posts and meme-ready red-carpet pranks were making it clear that there was a lot more to the actor than grunts and pecs.
