“No one even knew I spoke English,” says Jason Momoa about struggling after Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is the kind of show that is an up and coming actor’s dream job. Many of the actors on the show have validated this opinion, and here is no doubt that all of them have benefited from their time on the show. However, there have been certain struggles attached to it, as well. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo, and is arguably the most loved star from the cast of Thrones, recently revealed his struggles after leaving the show. Read on!

In a recent interview with Esquire, Momoa discussed how things were like for him after he left Game of Thrones. Apparently he was put in a corner because of the kind of character that Drogo was:

“I mean, where do you put Drogo? He’s not going in a rom-com. No one even knew I spoke English.”

While Momoa had been acting for a while, Game of Thrones was his big break. He said:

“I’m not known for my acting. I’m known for action. I don’t say a lot of things or use big sentences.”

He reflected on his earlier days in the industry, working on Baywatch:

“I fell in love with the art of acting. But no one took me seriously. Baywatch isn’t known for its . . . quality of acting. I couldn’t get an agent to save my life.”

Momoa’s latest project was Dune, on which he worked alongside Timothée Chalamet, who he thinks is very talented:

“He’s so fucking talented, man. I don’t know. I’m a little dumber, needed some time. Which is probably the best for me, because it would have been bad if it happened when I was younger. I just would have fucked it all up.”

Well, we’re grateful that Jason is doing well now, and there’s no doubt he’s one of the most loved and in-demand actors in the industry. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa recalls playing Sober on his assistant’s birthday

There are times when people working with you become special to you. When someone is close to you, their birth date holds a special value. Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa is one of the most down-to-earth celebrities in the acting industry. The humble and handsome hunk is known for his habit of lighting up the lives of those around him. He once gifted a little Aquaman fan battling cancer his Trident from the movie Aquaman. He recalled one such incident in an interview with Guitar World.

It was his assistant’s birthday, and he wanted to make it special. Momoa recalled, “We were on the set of Aquaman. I always have instruments on the set, so my son was playing the drums and my daughter was playing the guitar. It was my assistant’s birthday, and she really loves Tool, so I borrowed a bass from my buddy and we all played Sober for her. Right then, my passion for bass really exploded. The moment I put it on, I could just feel the connection – and it was all over.”

He continued, “I always knew I wanted to play bass. After that I wanted to play standup, so I bought one and now it’s a passion for me, with how it makes me feel and how it sounds. I studied and studied and studied bass, and I was like ‘My God, I wish I would have done this when I was young.’ I wish that I had that opportunity –but I’m making up for the lost time.”

Game of Thrones actor Tim Landers talks about dating while maintaining social distancing

The Red Wedding year 2020 took a toll on our everyday life. It diminished our outgoing activities to a bare minimum. The COVID-19 pandemic forced people to stay behind closed doors and avoid any physical interaction. No wonder, the dating scenario under the lockdown period changed dramatically. Tim Landers, the Irish actor who played a brother of the Night’s Watch on Game of Thrones, recalled one such incident with Sunday World.

The 54-year-old actor participated in a reality TV show named First Dates. He reminisced, “It was the Gibson Hotel as usual and I had my mask on when I arrived up and was met by the production staff, who also had masks on. They explained what was going to happen. But they want to maintain I was just arriving on the date, so that was filmed later.”

“When I met Matteo (the maître d’) he was behind a screen when I met him when I came in. Then when the date started I was waiting at the bar at a seat two metres from him. When we were brought over to the table we were amazed to find there was a huge distance between us on a very long table, maybe four or five metres away from each other.”

“They had to do what they had to do under the precautions,” Tim points out. “I feel I was told everything. It wasn’t like I didn’t know, it was fine. And he was lovely, a very funny guy. We had a lot in common.”

Game of Thrones’ Joe Dempsie was once asked out by a crazy fangirl while shooting. Have you ever been on a socially-distanced date? Tell us in the comments below!

Tim Landers revealed how Game of Thrones opened many doors for him

Game of Thrones was an astonishing tale that amassed record viewership in the past decade. The fantastical drama was an indispensable part of life for both the show’s crew and the audience. Many of the show’s cast members have admitted that the show influenced their life and career in a big way. (Like Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei)). Irish actor Tim Landers recently opened up about his time on Game of Thrones in an interview with Sunday World.

Landers landed the role of Kegs, one of the brothers at Night’s Watch. “I got the part of Kegs, I was one of the Night’s Watch,” he notes. “I had one line in episode eight, the Mountain and the Viper. It’s a very important line from the book, ‘the rains of Castamere’. The way I was treated was fantastic. They put me in a trailer and said ‘hang on there’ and it turned out the actor sharing it with me was Jason Barry, who is from Dublin and was in Titanic, which blew my mind.”

I remember arriving on set and I said ‘I’m in Lord of the Rings’, which I was a huge fan of, it was the closest I could put it down to.”

He added, “I didn’t get to meet to any of the big names but my buddy who plays my wench, we were in a brothel, my buddy was Lois Winstone, who is Ray Winstone’s daughter. We both get killed in the scene. I was killed off camera by a guy with a hatchet and she was killed by an arrow fired by Rose, the girl who’s married to Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) in real life.”
