Jason Momoa is an American actor who was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 1, 1979. His best known roles include playing the sci-fi warrior Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis, a fantasy world barbarian warlord named Khal Drogo in the HBO series Game of Thrones, and as the DC Comics superhero Aquaman in Justice League (2017) and Aquaman (2018).
Born Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa, Jason was raised by his mother in Norwalk, Iowa. After completing high school, Momoa began to study for a wildlife biology degree. He moved back to his home in Hawaii in order to reconnect with his father.
Jason is a Buddhist and meditates daily. He used to travel a lot during the days of his youth and his passion about the secrets of Buddhism started when he visited Tibet.
Momoa is a big fan of Australian football and rugby. In one of his interviews he says he is a true supporter of the New Zealand national rugby team “The All Blacks”. Apart from sports, he has several unusual hobbies including indigenous dances and drawing with pastels.
He tends to stay outside of the political world as there aren’t many sources about his views and opinions. It isn’t surprising that many well-known people are cautious when it comes to sharing their political views. Avoiding being involved in controversial situations can be quite beneficial for the particular celebrity.
After ten years together, Jason married actress Lisa Bonet in 2017. Bonet is Lenny Kravitz’s ex wife, and Momoa is the stepfather to actress Zoe Kravitz.
According to Jason, it was love at first sight for him. The only problem? She was on the TV.
“Ever since I was 8 years old and I saw her on TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one!” Momoa explained. “”I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you.’ I am a full-fledged stalker. I didn’t tell her that until we had two babies – otherwise, I’d be creepy and weird. I’ve always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always.” (1)
Together with Lisa, the couple have two children: Lola (born July 2007) and Nakoa-Wolf (born December 2008).
Before his relationship with Lisa Bonet, Jason had been engaged to Simmone Mackinnon from 1999 to 2006.
During his audition for Game of Thrones, Momoa performed haka, a traditional Maori dance. He wore dreads but shaved it off because his neck and head started to hurt after six years of wearing it.
