IF YOU GLANCED at Jason Momoa and presumed he’s the rugged type, you’d be right. The 35-year-old Hawaii-born actor, who cut his teeth on SyFy’s Stargate: Atlantis and gained global fame as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, has an in-the-blood affinity for climbing, motorcycling, and even “living in the dirt.” Burly in speech and stature, he’s one actor who seems to live the persona he puts forth, be it in the title role of the campy Conan the Barbarianremake or in the Sly Stallone actioner Bullet to the Head.
But Momoa has his softer edges. This year he directed, co-wrote, and starred in Road to Paloma (now available on DVD), which highlighted the plight of Native Americans; he appeared opposite his real-life wife, Lisa Bonet, with whom he has two children. Momoa recently chatted with Details about his and Bonet’s “electric chemistry,” bathing in salt, what he calls his motorcycle, and those pesky Aquaman rumors.
Love this man.
