“Our gods are water gods,” Momoa says. “It felt right to be doing this because he’s half-Atlantean and half-human. It just felt really spot on.”
And water, Momoa adds, on a personal note, has been one of the greatest teachers in his life. “It teaches me patience, it teaches me love, it teaches me courage and bravery and also it puts fear in me and lets me know where my place is,” he says. “It grounds me.”
“When I jump in the Hawaiian water, it’s the salt … it feels like I get younger and just pulls out any negativity that I have,” he adds. “So I have a huge, huge appreciation and love for being in the ocean.”
The actor, famous for playing the role of Khal Drogo in the Game of Thrones, performed the traditional Maori war dance
Jason Momoa, popularly known as Khal Drogo among his fans for his epic performance in the television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
“Blown away is a understatement I’m extremely humbled to be a part of the heartbreak family and thank you all so much for the haka today I’m speechless. I will always go out into battle and give it my all and I appreciate the love I have felt from you guys here today. Fighting is a part of Maori culture and has always been a part of my life and I’m so blessed to share a part of my journey with you guys”
As Aquaman, a character historically played in the comics and in animation as a blonde caucasian, Momoa brings a 1.93m tall, 106kg frame and Hawaiian, Irish and Native American ancestry. It’s a formidable blend, and Snyder’s instinct is obvious the moment Momoa walks into the room: he exudes charisma from every pore.
So, here’s the video! I’m so sorry it’s from TMZ, but they’re the only ones with the footage. Best to mute it and enjoy that way. Oh! And we shall include a bonus Jason Momoa Haka video from last year as well, in case you missed it. Enjoy the eye candy! 🙂
