The Hall of Hunks: Jason Momoa
I was late to the world of Westeros. By the time I discovered Game of Thrones, it was on its second season. I knew immediately that it sounded like something that I would enjoy. I purchased the first season and binged it as quickly as I could. It was there, among the inappropriate twin love, the dire wolves, and the plethora deaths, that I learned of the beautiful human specimen named Jason Mamoa. Momoa portrayed Kahl Drogo, the savage leader of the Dothraki and lover of the Khaleesi. Jason Momoa’s character was only around of a short period of time but he made an impression on people. Many were sad to see him go. Luckily, if you are a fan of the show and you run into Mamoa, he is fluent in Dothraki so don’t be afraid to show off your own skills.
Long before Game of Thrones, Momoa started his career with modeling. He won Hawaii’s Model of the Year 1999 and went on to host the Miss Teen Hawaii contest. That same year, he was cast in his first acting job – Baywatch Hawaii. Following that, he had roles on several television series including Stargate Atlantis and North Shore. He has also done well in films, both big and small. His most recent role being Aquaman.
Jason Mamoa loves living. He does everything 100%. He studied marine biology and wildlife biology while in college. He is excellent at rock climbing and ice climbing. He enjoys surfing, mountain biking, snowboarding, and skateboarding. He loves playing the guitar. Mamoa studied pastel painting in Paris and considers himself art buff. He also loves his family and shares his passions with his kids. He even built his children a skate park and rock climbing wall.
And, of course, it does not hurt that Jason Mamoa is stunning. He just seems to get more gorgeous as time goes on. He seems to have won the genetic lottery. His father is native Hawaiian and is mother is of German, Irish and Native American descent. This combination sure does create a beautiful man.
I think that this is just the beginning for Jason Mamoa’s career. I am truly excited to see what the future holds. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing him at the Planet Comicon in Kansas City, MO later this week. It is my honor to welcome you to the hall of hunks, Jason Mamoa!
