Jason Momoa is evoking memories from the time when the filming of season one of “Game of Thrones” was in progress.
On Sunday, May 26, the 39-year-old actor, who played the role of Khal Drogo in the first season of the popular HBO TV show from 2011 to 2012, provided the audience with insight into the show by sharing a behind-the-scenes photo.
Momoa’s best friend Brian was the one to capture this moment. In the photograph, you can see the actor smiling while lying in the back of a van which was somewhere off the road in Donegal, Ireland, in a remote parking lot.
According to Momoa’s words, the photograph was taken during a short break from filming, when the friends did not have enough money to afford a flight home, so they rented a U-Haul instead.
Momoa wrote in his post that he had been rather homesick back then. He said that he had been browsing through photos on his phone and happened to find that particular one. According to him, the location was a remote parking lot somewhere in Donegal. He called the moment amazing and simple, tagging his best friend with whom he had shared it.
He continued that the series had a brief break from filming and that he and his friend were unable to afford to go home. Instead, they rented a van—seen in the photo in Belfast—and drove around the country of Ireland, which he called amazing and beautiful in his post. At the same time, they went on a quest to find the very best pint of Guinness. According to the actor, the beer is perfect everywhere.
Momoa added that it was the simplest moments, the ones he had shared with wonderful people, that he treasured the most. He said that those times involved some amazing stories. He then mentioned his family, saying that he missed them and that the road had been far too long, even though it felt like he was just getting started. In the post scriptum, he promised to ask his friend Brian for more photos, stating that he had gold. Momoa finished his post with his trademark signature — “Aloha j.”.
After starring in “Game of Thrones,” Jason Momoa has moved on to the big screen and played the role of Aquaman in three feature movies. It has been announced that he will reprise the role in “Aquaman 2,” scheduled for 2022.
