Jason admits facing financial crunch
Actor Jason Momoa got global fame essaying Khal Drogo in the popular series 'Game of Thrones' and he said that losing the job in 2011 left him in debt. Khal Drogo, the husband of Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, was killed off during the first season finale in 2011.
The 41-year-old actor was facing a financial crunch around the time his character was eliminated from the show. According to a report in 'dailymail.co.uk', he added that he was struggling to even to pay the bills at that point of time.
"I mean, we were starving after 'Game of Thrones'," he said and added: "I could not get work. It is very challenging when you have babies and you are completely in debt."
Momoa is married to Lisa Bonet. The couple has a daughter Lola Iolani, 13 and a son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, 11.
Jason Momoa had started out as a model, winning Hawaii's Model of the Year in 1999. He went on to host the 'Miss Teen Hawaii' contest. His acting credits include 'Baywatch Hawaii', 'North Shore', 'Johnson Family Vacation', 'Conan
the Barbarian' and 'Stargate: Atlantis'.
However, besides his stint as Khal Drogo, the role that earned him global fame was playing the title role in the superhero adventure, 'Aquaman'.
"They may put me in a box, but I like the box," Momoa said in an exclusive interview when asked about his previous characters casting a shadow on his future projects.
He further said, "I like all the characters that I am playing. If I do not like them, then I do not play them. Then I write something different and direct that. I like what I am doing right now."
