Now, who hasn’t heard of Jason Momoa?
Born in 1979, in Honolulu, Hawaii, the six-foot-four actor has recently become a household name.
He’s been the center of some of our favorite shows over the years…
And many don’t know that, before he started out as an actor, he actually studied both marine biology and wildlife biology – proving that he’s more than just a pretty face.
One of his first bigger roles was on Stargate: Atlantis.
The sci-fi military hybrid was actually fairly successful. Momoa starred as Ronon Dex, to much critical acclaim.
This thrusted him into the acting world…
And in 2011, Momoa was cast in the first series of Game of Thrones.
This was without a doubt what made his career.
Game of Thrones became far more successful than anyone could have ever imagined. And Momoa’s character, Khal Drogo, quickly became a fan favorite.
Despite the fact his character was pretty brutal…
As the leading warrior in the savage Dothraki tribe, Momoa was, unsurprisingly, pretty violent. In one particularly memorable scene, Drogo brutally murdered Viserys Targaryen by pouring molten gold onto his head.
But fans were more interested in his relationship with Daenerys…
In the early episodes of the show’s first season, Drogo was married to Daenerys Targaryen in an arranged ceremony.
Through trials and tribulations, they grew closer as a couple…
The 2 seemingly opposite characters developed real feelings for each other and their’s became one of the cutest and most genuine love stories in the show.
Sadly, he didn’t stick around for as long as we’d hoped…
He was injured during a battle and that injury became infected. In order to save his life, Daenerys was forced to sacrifice her unborn son to a witch. But the Drogo that came back was alive in name only. He was without any consciousness and Daenerys was forced to euthanize him.
In spite of his early departure, Momoa is still a fan-fave in the Game of Thrones canon…
And since the show, his career has really taken off. He first appeared as DC superhero, Aquaman, in 2016’s Batman v Superman – and Aquaman was so beloved that he went on to star in his own solo movie in 2018.
Aquaman’s character was also a part of 2017’s Justice League.
The character was so well-liked that in 2018, the DC Universe decided that it was time for a solo film. Aquaman was a massive success.
Many were surprised that the film did this well, considering the fact that, in the comics, Aquaman is often considered to be a bit of a joke.
People were also thrilled to see a superhero played by a person of color.
Since the success of Aquaman, Momoa has gone from strength to strength.
He had a starring role in the 2018 Canadian action movie, Braven, to commercial and critical success.
He even made it to Netflix…
In one of the most famous is the CBC series, Frontier, which first aired in 2016. It tells the story of the North American fur trade in the eighteenth century.
He’s also dipped his toe into the world of film-making.
Earlier in 2020, he created a short film in collaboration with clothing brand, Carhartt, called Canvas Of My Life. The movie tells the story of Momoa’s experience of fatherhood.
Aside from his career, Momoa is also known for having an incredible relationship with Lisa Bonet…
In 2005, Momoa met the actress, and the pair began a relationship. Although there were reports that the two had married in 2007, they actually didn’t end up tying the knot until 2017.
Momoa has always been vocal about his love for Bonet. In 2019, he shared with Esquire that she was his childhood crush when she starred on The Cosby Show.
“I mean, I didn’t tell her that. I didn’t let her know I was a stalker until after we had the kids,” he joked, adding that “if someone says something isn’t possible, I’m like, ‘Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is f–king possible.’”
They share a wonderful family together…
The pair share daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, born in 2007, and a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, born in 2008.
Momoa is also stepfather to singer and actress, Zoe Kravitz.
But recently, Momoa shared some very difficult news about his relationship with Bonet.
The actor revealed in a post on Instagram that he and Bonet were divorcing.
Momoa explained that they are “parting ways in marriage.”
“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring,” the statement starts.
“And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage. We share this not because we think it’s newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.”
It continues: “The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become… Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children… Teaching our Children What’s possible ~ Living the Prayer… May Love Prevail.” The message is signed, J & L.
The news of their divorce came as a huge shock to fans.
And has left many feeling worried about the couple particularly as it emerged that Momoa was reportedly living in a van parked in his friend’s yard.
But then, following Momoa’s divorce announcement, attention turned to a photo of him with Emilia Clarke.
Fans had a lot say about a photo of Momoa and Emilia Clarke that was posted to his Instagram page last year.
Some people seem less than impressed by the photo as it shows Momoa and Clarke smiling while she is sat on his knee with a caption that calls her the “moon of my life.”
“MOON OF MY LIFE. you are wonderful love u forever @emilia_clarke #smilelyeyes happy birthday benioff you handsome generous badass leo aloha j.”
It’s clear the pair are very close, but despite the rumors, it seems the relationship between them doesn’t go any further than that…
Especially as a source close to Momoa and Bonet claimed that the pair were back together.
One of Momoa’s friends told Hollywood Life, that he has even moved back into the house with her…
The outlet claims that the source said: “Jason moved back in with Lisa about two weeks ago and they are very much back together. They decided to work on things rather than throw in the towel because they have so much invested in each other.”
According to the source, “Lisa is, and always has been, the only woman that Jason has ever loved.”
Momoa broke his silence…
And what Momoa had to say has gathered quite the response from fans, who all showed their support for the actor.
Momoa, along with his children, attended The Batman world premiere in New York to support Zoë Kravitz.
While at the premiere, Momoa spoke with Entertainment Tonight about being “so proud” of Kravitz as he added that “Lisa couldn’t be here.”
Following the premiere, Momoa then took to Instagram to discuss the event and Kravitz’s success.
Writing that he’s “so proud” of Kravitz, but people were more interested in Momoa also touching on his public separation.
Sharing pictures from the premiere, Momoa wrote: “So excited for everyone to see @thebatman @zoeisabellakravitz you’re perfect as Cat Woman I’m so proud of you.”
“So excited for @snl next week you’re going to kill it. We had a wonderful time in NYC.”
Momoa then went on to say “Lisa couldn’t be here so we’re representing, me and the babies. We’re very excited to just be here … It’s still family, you know?”
“Mahalo to the fans and press for being generous and giving us space for the children, it’s hard enough separating in the public eye,” he wrote. “We appreciate the continued privacy through these times aloha J.”
Sadly, it seems that Momoa can’t catch a break…
As reports came in that he was involved in a head-on crash with a motorcyclist over the weekend.
Fans were shocked by the news, one Facebook user wrote: “Jason lives off Topanga Canyon Blvd so that makes sense he was there. Glad everyone was ok!”
Another commented: “Does he need round the clock aide to help with his injuries. I can be available, my kids (teens) are still on summer break, and can fend for themselves.”
According to TMZ, Momoa was driving on Old Topanga Canyon Road on Sunday, when a biker came round the bend onto his side of the road.
He hit head-on into Momoa’s Oldsmobile, flying off his bike and onto the windshield before bouncing off and reportedly landing on his feet.
Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
The biker was taken to the hospital for minor injuries to their leg and thumb.
And from the video of the aftermath of the crash, Momoa appeared to be fine.
Although he must have been a little shaken up by the incident.
