(CNN) –– Jason Momoa said he was “completely in debt” and was “starving” right after his role in the hit series “Game of Thrones”.
“I couldn’t find a job,” the actor told the magazine recently InStyle. “It is very challenging when you have children and are in full debt.”
Momoa is married to actress Lisa Bonet and they are the parents of two children. He is also the stepfather of actress Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of Bonet with her ex-husband, rocker Lenny Kravitz.
The situation improved for a while after playing Khal Drogo in the first season of the HBO series. (HBO is owned by CNN’s parent company.)
Momoa first entered the industry with “Baywatch Hawaii”. And the water theme was positive for his career, as he also played the superhero Aquaman.
He now has a lot of acting jobs, including a second season of his “See” series on Apple TV +. It also appears in the movie “Dune”.
Momoa spoke at the release about how she felt seeing the “Dune” trailer for the first time. “It was’ Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem ‘and I was like,’ Oh my God. I can’t believe my name was among those names,” Momoa said. “I feel like I’m still a kid, going crazy . ”
