The actor admits he wasn't thrilled to get killed off of "Game of Thrones" in the HBO hit's first season.

At the rate Game of Thrones is going, there ought to be a support group for all the actors who have been killed off of the hit show. And it sounds as though Jason Momoa would be the first to offer a testimonial.

The 34-year-old Conan the Barbarian actor was interviewed by HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski, who asked him if he's a fan of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin's writing.

"I mean, after George Martin killed me, I was like, 'Go f— yourself,' " Momoa said, although he quickly added that he was just kidding. "After George killed me off, I was really upset because I went to go get the book at Barnes & Noble, and I was really bummed that I was dead. But it's brilliant writing."

Momoa played Khal Drogo in the show's first season before the character's ultimate demise. Drogo returned briefly in season two.

In the interview, Momoa added a pitch for Martin to resurrect his character. "George, come on, buddy," Momoa said.
"[Martin]'s not finished with that book — [Drogo] could come back still."
