Biography

It only took a few years for Jason Momoa to rise up the Hollywood ranks from a supporting player on short-lived dramas, to portraying one of the biggest action heroes of all time on the big screen. Momoa began his career as a model, winning local competitions in his native Hawaii before gracing the runways of high fashion designers. He launched his acting career on television as a lifeguard on "Baywatch" (NBC, 1989-90; syndicated, 1990-2001) and as a hunky bartender on the "Baywatch"-inspired show "North Shore" (Fox, 2004-05). Momoa won raves from critics and viewers for his portrayal of a skilled hunter on the action adventure series "Stargate: Atlantis" (Sci Fi, 2004-09) and a menacing warlord on the epic medieval drama series "Game of Thrones" (HBO, 2011- ). Momoa graduated to feature blockbusters when he took on the title role in "Conan the Barbarian" (2011), a character that was previously played by action film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger. Displaying his athletic prowess, emotional depth, and audience appeal as Conan, Momoa delivered a performance worthy of filling Schwarzenegger's shoes, and established him as one of the most dynamic actors of his generation.
