Jason Momoa, 42, is an American model, actor, writer, director and producer who portrays Aquaman in the DC Universe, starred in “Dune” and appears as Baba Voss in the AppleTV series “See.” Known for often playing warriors or tough guys, which isn’t hard to believe given his 6-foot-4-inch tattooed body, he isn’t afraid to show off a humorous side.

Even though Momoa has been acting since 1999, he first became the subject of water-cooler conversation as Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones.”

In addition to appearing in “Game of Thrones” and “See” he has been featured in TV series including “Baywatch,” “Stargate: Atlantis,” and “The Frontier.” Momoa also starred in films such as “Johnson Family Vacation,” “Conan the Barbarian,” “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” and “Sweet Girl.”

In 2014, he wrote, directed and starred in “Road to Paloma.” That same year he landed the role of Arthur Curry, a.k.a. Aquaman, and had his first cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He would reprise the role first in “Justice League” and then again in the first “Aquaman” film.
