The HBO series originates from the book written by George R. R. Martin. The show has given fame to its other stars like Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Emilia Clarke, and Kit Harrington. However, Jason shares he was starving after Game of Thrones.
He said, “I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies and you’re completely in debt.” The actor’s character was killed off after marrying Emilia’s character, Daenerys.
He struggled to make amends meet as payments of his house were pending. Jason lived near Los Angeles with his wife, Lisa Bonet, and their two kids. The actor revealed his situation improved five years from there and he was cast as Aquaman.

Jason shared that he is learning to be a good dad after being financially dependent. He revealed that he grew up without a dad at home and did not know what it takes to be one. The actor shared that he did not want to tell his son, “‘Because I said so.’” He said, “I really want to connect, and I want him to be vulnerable and open.”
Jason also revealed that he is open to exploring both his masculine and feminine sides. He shared that he wants to grow as a person. However, the actor shared, “I’m also the first one to say, ‘I have a lot of problems, and I want to be able to correct those problems.'”
