Things got better awhile after he played Khal Drogo on the first season of the HBO series (HBO is owned by CNN’s parent company).
Momoa first got into the business on “Baywatch Hawaii” and the water theme has been good for him since he went on to play superhero Aquaman.
He’s got plenty of acting gigs now, including a second season of his Apple TV+ series, “See,” and he also appears in the film “Dune.”
“It was ‘Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem,’ and I’m just like, ‘Oh my god. I can’t believe my name was with those names,'” Momoa said. “I feel like I’m still a kid, freaking out.”
