Hollywood hunk Jason Momoa says that he and his family were in serious debt after he was cut from popular HBO series, Game of Thrones.

His character, Khal Drogo, was killed off during the very first series.

"I mean, we were starving after 'Game of Thrones,'" Momoa, 41, said in a new InStyle interview. "I couldn't get work. It's very challenging when you have babies and you're completely in debt."

He also opened up about the challenges of fatherhood. He grew up without his father, so he was careful not to let his lack of experience hinder his communication with his son, Wolf.

"I didn't know what it takes to be a dad," he says. "And I don't want to just tell my son, 'Because I said so.' I really want to connect, and I want him to be vulnerable and open."
