Momoa’s endeavors didn’t stop with “Aquaman”. He was later cast alongside Dave Bautista and Zendaya in the 2021 epic sci-fi film, ‘Dune’. The film is an adaptation of a 1965 novel by Frank Herbert. The Aquaman star plays Duncan Idaho, the master of swords of House Atreides.
He’s also returned to the screen in another warrior role, in the Apple series, ‘See’, in which he plays Baba Voss, leader of a gang/tribe in a bleak futuristic world.
Game of Thrones
Later that year, he was thrown into his next major role, in HBO’s 'Game of Thrones'. Momoa found himself playing the part of Khal Drogo, another character that fell along the same lines as those he’d played previously. In fact, since the leader of the Dothraki didn’t speak English and acted like a brutish caveman, he had some problems finding any other type of role afterward for quite some time.
Luckily, his next move was to co-write the 2014 film, 'Road to Paloma', and show off a different side of himself the world hadn’t seen yet.
Initiated into the DC Universe
'Game of Thrones' is a hugely popular show, and Jason Momoa was already starting to build a nice fan base for himself at that point. But in 2016, he found himself playing in the big leagues with major motion picture stars, when he landed the role of Aquaman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.
And, because he turned out to be such a hit, his character’s own film came out just a couple of years later. But his career was still just getting started at that point. Little did he know just how big it would become!
Momoa and Lisa Bonet were officially a couple in 2005. And just two years after the two first went public with their love story, there were rumors that the pair had tied the knot.
However, it turned out that they were just that – rumors. The stars did indeed get married, but not until they had been dating for more than 10 years already.
When the couple finally did tie the knot, they tried their hardest to keep things under wraps from the media. In 2017, they had a very intimate ceremony with close friends and family at their home in California. Unfortunately, someone leaked the information and it was just a matter of time before everyone heard the news.
But since most people had assumed that they’d already been married – it wasn’t exactly shocking. Plus, Momoa had already been calling Bonet his “bride” for 10 years.
