Jason Momoa has admitted that he was “too broke to fly home” while filming Game of Thrones in Belfast a few years ago.
The 39-year-old played Khal Drogo in the hit HBO series, which was his first major acting role.
Taking to Instagram, Jason shared an old photo of him lying in the back of a U-Haul van in Donegal.
He captioned the post: “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 to 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 it’s perfect everywhere.”
“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,” he added.
Since landing his first major role in Game of Thrones, Jason has starred in huge blockbuster hits, and has secured the role of Aquaman in the DC Comics universe.
