Jason Momoa gained rising popularity after being cast as Daenerys husband, Khal Drogo, in HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Although he’s an actor and producer, he’s done modeling in the past.
His look is pretty unique and his ethnicity consists of Hawaiian, German, Irish, and Native American. He is married to actress Lisa Bonet, who used to play Denise on “The Cosby Show.”
He now has an upcoming role in a couple new Marvel movies as Aqua Man.
When he appeared as a regular on the show Stargate Atlantis several years ago, there was a little bit of a kurfuful over his locs (which he no longer rocks). Producers were skeptical about casting him at first because of his locs. However, they cast him, and his locs received a positive response.
He later cut them off because they had become too heavy for him. Producers convinced him to reattach his locs (which were still too heavy) then wear a loc wig for the remainder of his time on the show.
I loved his locs and feel they offset his unique — and undeniably handsome — look perfectly.
