Actor Jason Momoa, best known for playing Dothraki Warlord Khal Drogo on HBO’s Game of Thrones, flew to Ireland over the weekend and teased what he was up to in an Instagram post.
Being seen in a bar with D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the head showrunners of Game of Thrones led to a lot of speculation that Jason would reprise his role from GoT in some way for season 8, the final season. Momoa followed his first IG post with several more from Dublin where he visited the Guinness Warehouse and partied with friends.
Just when it was looking like the whole thing was a major tease, a local newspaper in Ireland got an exclusive- the entire cast of Game of Thrones, including characters who had been killed off, were going to appear on the Conan O’Brien show and that Conan was in Ireland too. You can read the entire article HERE.
It seemed the mystery of why Jason was in Belfast with the producers of Game of Thrones had been solved.
And then the Instagram photos started coming in from a cast party that was held on Saturday. Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke were featured in some pretty silly photos together, including one that she shared on her Instagram account.
FYI…This is the closest you’ll ever get to me attempting ‘that lift’ from dirty dancing. Yes, my man is sitting. Yes, there’s no lake. And yes, I have no idea I’m NOT being raised above his head. (Id like to take a moment to thank alcohol for giving me courage to attempt this. Ever.) @gameofthrones @prideofgypsies #nooneputsdrogointhecorner #imhavingthetimeofmylife #fyi #thankgodwegotthatmanonathrone #mysunandstarsintheireyes #❤ #🔥

Cast and crew members also shared photos on Instagram of what appeared to be an epic cast party.
