His supposed ‘breakout’ role of Khal Drogo in the HBO series Game Of Thrones apparently wasn’t as much of a breakout as many suspect. After Khal Drogo was killed off in the show’s very first season, Momoa struggled to get by in spite of the great success that the show received in its later seasons.
He said in the interview: “I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones,” he continued. “I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.” Following the end of Baywatch, which is where Momoa got his first acting role, he struggled to find an agent.
Though after landing the role of Aquaman, his luck started to change with continued work coming to him via the D.C. Extended Universe and soon after getting a role on the upcoming film ‘Dune’ as well as Apple TV+’s ‘See’
Momoa had this to say about landing the role in Dune: “It was ‘Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem,’ and I’m just like, ‘Oh my god. I can’t believe my name was with those names,” Said Momoa. “I feel like I’m still a kid, freaking out.”
