Jason Momoa wishes he could have done more with Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones before the character was killed off. Momoa spoke with Metro promoting his new Apple TV series See and discussed how he’s never had the opportunity to really explore character development in his past roles, including Drogo. Some highlights are below:

On his See character having real character exploration: “I’ve always wanted to do this. I’ve always felt like I’ve been cheated in a lot of the things I’ve done. You try to show a little bit of colour in there, you know, with Conan but no one wants to see Conan crying and with Drogo he died before any of that stuff could happen. In Frontier all his family were killed and it was about the revenge of it all. In this it’s just beautiful because you see the whole arc of it all.”

On his reaction to reading See’s script: “I was in Cornwall and I was coming up to London for Frontier. They sent me the script, I read it out loud to my buddies and we all flipped because they’ve been with me my whole life and they freaked out and also Jamie Sives, who I was in Game of Thrones with, and my dad – I was with a solid group and they were so excited for me. I’ve never had anything that good sent to me. It usually goes through so many actors before it gets to me – but it was so perfectly cast, the savage primal thing but then it turns into this beautiful father role.”
