Jason Momoa was born in Hawaii but raised in Iowa. When he moved back to Hawaii after high school, he began modeling, which soon led to an acting career. After numerous television roles, Momoa landed his most known role of Khal Drogo on HBO's Game of Thrones, which debuted in 2011. That same year Momoa was featured in the title role of the new Conan the Barbarian movie. He has remained busy through film projects and TV series, as well as his selection for the role of DC Comics superhero Aquaman on the big screen in December 2018.
It was believed that Momoa married actress Lisa Bonet in 2007, though the union reportedly wasn't "official" until the two formally wed in October 2017. The couple have two children together, daughter Lola Iolani Momoa and son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
