Jason Momoa has always been a sex symbol since his emergence in Hollywood. The Hawaiian native got his first big break at 20 years old as Jason Ioane on Baywatch: Hawaii (1999–2001), being much less buff, had no facial hair and rocked a short haircut.
In the next few years, he journeyed to the sci-fi realm portraying Ronon Dex on the Syfy series Stargate Atlantis (2005–2009). In this series, Momoa rocks a longer dreaded hairdo and dons a goatee with a beefier frame.
If you hadn’t been following the actor’s career yet, you sure did once you got a glimpse of him as Khal Drogo in the first two seasons of Game of Thrones (2011–2012). As the warrior and loyal husband of Daenerys Targaryan, Momoa gained quite the fandom in his portrayal of the Dothraki chieftain. His most recent TV acting roles include his leading roles as Declan Harp on the historical drama series Frontier (2016–2018), and as the beloved Baba Voss on Apple TV+’s See (2019–2022).
As popular as his role as Khal Drogo was, Momoa is also commonly called upon by his DC character, Aquaman. He has played the role of Arthur Curry since the eponymous 2018 film and in its upcoming 2023 sequel. As we earlier reported, Momoa spilled the beans that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be appearing in the sequel. He’s also starred in the 2021 sci-fi flick Dune alongside an all-star cast consisting of Timothée Chamalet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin.
Momoa shares two kids, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha, 13, and Lola Iolani, 15, with his ex-wife, actress Lisa Bonet. The two began dating in 2005 after Momoa called off his engagement to Baywatch actress Simmone Jade Mackinnon. Momoa and Bonet married twelve years later in 2017 but announced their split in January 2022.
