Following the conclusion of Game of Thrones season 8, Jason Momoa has been reminiscing about his short time on the hit HBO show.

Momoa, who played Khal Drogo in the first two seasons, recently took to Instagram to post an image of himself sleeping on two blow-up beds in the back of a van while filming the first season.

The actor, who would later become DC’s Aquaman, revealed in the caption that he was “too broke to fly home”, so he and his friend rented a van instead.

Momoa wrote: "It was an amazing simple moment with my best friend [Brian Andrew Mendoza]. While filming GoT we had a lil break. We were too broke to fly home so we rented a panel van aka UHAUL in Belfast and drove around beautiful amazing IRELAND searching for the greatest pint of Guinness.

"Turns out it's perfect everywhere. So many wonderful people and stories I treasure those times. It was the simplest moments I remember the most."

He finished by adding: "I still miss my family. Been a long road and I feel like I'm just getting started."

Momoa’s character Khal Drogo lasted two seasons on Game of Thrones before being given a mercy killing by his partner Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).

From then on, Momoa’s days of sleeping in the back of a van were over after the show catapulted him to fame. He has since gone on to star in Justice League and Aquaman, and has also been cast Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming adaptation of Dune.
