Jason Momoa Claims He Was Completely Broke After Starring In ‘Game of Thrones’
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ started a lot of careers. The hit series was one of the most talked about shows for years, and while some stars were lucky enough to last multiple seasons, Jason Momoa wasn’t so lucky.
His character was killed off during the dramatic first season finale back in 2011, and this was a very difficult time for the actor.
In an interview with InStyle, the 41-year-old actor revealed that he was struggling financially after starring in the show. He was struggling to pay the bills on the Los Angeles home he shares with his wife, Lisa Bonet.
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.
Obviously things have since worked out. In 2018, he starred in the ‘Aquaman‘ movie, and he has a net worth close to $15 million now.
But his comments during the interview aren’t exaggerated. He has previously told a story about how he was too broke to fly home while filming Game of Thrones.
They had a break in filming, and while most of his other cast members flew home to see family, Momoa was stuck in Ireland. But don’t feel too bad for him, he made the most of his time by renting out a Uhaul and driving around tasting all the various beers..
Several actors have similar stories. They fight and just try to survive, hoping for that one lucky break. Some get lucky, and others are probably waiting on you at your local Olive Garden. It’s a crazy world.
