Showtimes > Jason Momoa Bio


Date of Birth: August 1, 1979

Born in Hawaii, Jason Momoa has a mixed Hawaiian and Caucasian background that gives him a unique look. Raised in Norwalk, Iowa by his mother, he moved back to Hawaii after high school, where he landed a lead role on the series Baywatch, which was being filmed in Hawaii at the time.

When the show ended, he took time off to travel, then in 2003, continued his career by reprising his role in the TV movie Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. By the 2004/2005 TV season, he'd been cast as regular Frankie Seau on Fox's North Shore, set in Hawaii. The following season, he garnered a regular role on Stargate: Atlantis, gaining a huge fan base as he stayed with the series for the next four years. In 2009, he played Roman on the short-lived series The Game, followed by the role of Khal Drogo in the highly-anticipated HBO series Game of Thrones.

Jason's biggest break to date was when he was cast as the title role in the feature film remake of Conan the Barbarian, stepping into Arnold Schwarzenegger's shoes.

Momoa's creativity as an artist seemingly has no bounds. Jason's Road To Paloma is an art-house road tale which he wrote, directed and also starred in. He also wrote, directed and produced the short 2010 film Brown Bag Diaries: Ridin' the Blinds in B Minor and played alongside Sylvester Stallone in Bullet to the Head (2013).

His recent credits include Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and the sci-fi film The Bad Batch (2017) with Diego Luna and Keanu Reeves.

Jason lives with former star of The Cosby Show, actress Lisa Bonet, with whom he has two children: Lola and Nakoa-Wolf.
