Jason Momoa's Hollywood journey began with a powerful portrayal of Khal Drogo in HBO’s "Game of Thrones," a role that captured the attention of viewers worldwide. Despite exiting the series in its first season, Momoa's performance as the Dothraki warlord left an indelible mark.

Reflecting on his role, Momoa expressed mixed feelings about his character's actions towards Daenerys.  "You’re playing someone that’s like Genghis Khan," Momoa explained, acknowledging the challenge of embodying Drogo's harshness.  He emphasized that his job was to faithfully represent the character, regardless of his personal feelings towards Drogo's actions.

Momoa's candidness about the role highlighted his professional integrity, but he also made it clear that it was not an experience he would seek to repeat.  "I’ve never really been questioned about ‘Do you regret playing a role?   ’ We’ll put it this way: I already did it.    Not doing it again,” he stated, indicating his reluctance to revisit such a controversial character type.

Emilia Clarke, who shared numerous scenes with Momoa, spoke about her experience working with him during her first acting job.

She recalled how he advocated for her comfort on set, often ensuring she had a robe between takes.  

While their on-screen relationship was fraught with complexity, off-screen, Momoa's genuine concern and respect left a lasting positive impact on Clarke.  Although their time together on "Game of Thrones" was brief, the dynamic between Clarke and Momoa remains a fond memory for both actors and fans alike, exemplifying the depth of their professional and personal bond.
