Jason Momoa’s rise to fame in Hollywood from his early TV gigs is nothing short of amazing. It was his iconic depiction of Khal Drogo in the popular series Game of Thrones that shot him to fame. He attracted a devoted following thanks to his extraordinary talent for bringing the rough and rugged warrior figure to life. However, Momoa’s career really took off in 2018 when he was cast as Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman, in the DC Extended Universe. Making the recognizable superhero role his own signified his professional debut, and the film went on to gross $1.1 billion at the box office.
