Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has revealed that after his role ended he was ‘too broke to fly home so lived in a van’ and drove around Ireland.
The US actor had one of the early roles in the global hit Game of Thrones, as Khal Drogo, the husband of Daenerys Targaryen.
Momoa recently found a photo taken just after he finished filming for the role, and has posted it on Instagram to show his fans how he was doing at the time.
He posted the pic, of him in a sleeping bag in the back of a van and wrote: “So homesick. Looking through my phone I found this. Off the road some quiet parking lot in Donegal. It was an amazing simple moment with my best friend @captainriff.
“While filming GOT we had a lil break. We were too broke to fly home so we rented a panel van aka UHAUL in Belfast and drove around beautiful amazing IRELAND searching for the greatest pint of Guinness. Turns out its perfect everywhere.”
Momoa clearly enjoyed his time here, as he described the great experiences he enjoyed on his road trip.
“So many wonderful people and stories. I treasure those times. It was the simplest moments I remember the most. I still miss my family. Been a long road and I feel like I’m just getting started. On the roam needs to go home. Ps I’ll ask Brian for more pics he’s got the gold. Aloha j.”
Momoa has seen his popularity and profile rise further since his role in Game of Thrones, after he was cast as superhero Aquaman in the latest movie in the DC Comics franchise.
