An actor who appeared in the first season of Game of Thrones revealed how his life changed after his character was killed off in 2011.
Jason Mamoa who starred as the Dothraki leader Khal Drogo described how he struggled to provide for his wife and kids following his momentary appearance in the HBO fantasy drama. All efforts to find a job had been unsuccessful, making it hard to provide for his wife Lisa Bonet and their two children Lola Iolani, now 13, and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, 11.
The actor was left behind as Game of Thrones became a global hit, though he could have appeared in its second season in flashback.
Mamoa recalled: “I mean, we were starving after Game of Thrones. I couldn’t get work. 1`It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.”
In an interview to InStyle magazine, the actor revealed the meaning behind the body art which matches with his wife Lisa saying: “Basically it means, `Always be drunken.` You know, just intoxicated with life. Not necessarily drunk.”
Mamoa went on to describe why he loved the colour pink. “Pink is just a beautiful colour. And I’m pretty secure in my masculinity. I don’t really give a s**t what anyone thinks,” he told InStyle.
His life turned around when he landed the coveted role of Aquaman in Justice League. He starred in the hit standalone Aquaman film in 2018.
