Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has revealed he didn't have enough to fly home after playing Khal Drogo in the HBO show.
The 39-year-old actor has posted a throwback pic on his Instagram , sharing the moment after he finished filming Game of Thrones in Ireland but was "too broke to fly home."
Jason was there at the beginning of the popular series, with his character only appearing during the first run.
Being stuck in Ireland didn't faze him though, and along with his 'best friend' Brian Andrew Mendoza – who runs the production company, Pride of Gypsies – they bought a van and went on a road trip looking for the "greatest pint of Guinness."
After playing Daenerys Targaryen's husband in the first season, the actor revealed on the Instagram post that he was "so homesick."
This sentiment was slightly betrayed by the accompanying photo, which showed the Aquaman actor smiling in the back of the van that he lived in at that time.
Captioning the pic, Jason wrote: "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.”
The actor continued: "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. On the roam Needs to go home. Ps ill ask Brian for more pics he’s got the gold. Aloha j.”
Jason has been a consistent commentator on the Game of Thrones story as it developed over the eight seasons and he admits that the turning of Dany to the dark side hit him hard.
Drogo was the Dothraki leader with Daenerys his 'Khaleesi' and when she was finally murdered by Jon Snow in the final episode, Jason shared that it 'killed him too'.
As the character passed away in the arms of her lover, Jason commented on a post by Daenerys actress Emilia Clarke: "Baby that episode killed me.”
He later followed this with two heart-eye emojis before later adding: "I love you madly."
Jason has joined the superhero universe since his stint in Game of Thrones, and received plentiful praise for his portrayal of Aquaman in the 2018 movie of the same name.
