Jason Momoa in 'Game of Thrones'

For his role as the expertly bearded Dothraki leader Khal Drogo on HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones," American actor Jason Momoa says he took inspiration from a specific species.

"For Drogo I wanted to just go stare at Silverbacks and watch how they react," Momoa said. "You look at a Silverback, they are so intense. That's what I wanted to have."

To get through the intense workouts that have built up his body for roles in films like the upcoming "Justice League" with Israeli actress Gal Gadot and American actor Ben Affleck, Momoa makes sure to always have one special reward waiting for him at the end of each day.

"I'm an early riser, I work out really hard, I push myself, I get my job done, and at the end of the day, there's a Guinness waiting for me," he told Esquire. "I can't stand chocolate. I don't eat sweets, but there's gonna be three Guinness at the end of the day, and it helps me get through."
