Humility is a virtue possessed by few. Even though Game of Thrones reached great heights, the show’s cast was always humble to their roots. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on the show, has to be one of the most down-to-earth celebrities among them. His family went broke after his exit in season 1, but he never lost his cool. The actor is putting a smile across millions of faces once again as the superhero Aquaman. He recently shared a story from his early Hollywood days in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

 

“I went to my first nice restaurant and I saw Liam Neeson,” Momoa recalled. “And fangirled out. I had not met anyone famous yet. I watched Rob Roy growing up, and I was really excited. And I just kind of stared at him and I would just smile. I creeped him out. He got up, left and moved to a few tables over.”

Then he recalled a similar experience about his chance meeting with Al Pacino.

“I was on Melrose [Avenue] and I look in a window, me and my buddy, and sure enough, I see Al Pacino,” he said. “And I just stopped dead in my tracks and I spent the next half-hour just walking in front of the window — to the point where he is just looking at us — and Al Pacino just flips us off and starts laughing. I felt really silly, but I get starstruck really easily.”
