Profile Bio Text
Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa (born August 1, 1979) is an American actor and model. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Norwalk, Iowa by his mother. He is 6¡ä4¡å (1.93 m) and is the only child of a Native Hawaiian father and an German-Irish American mother. His uncle is famed surfer Brian Keaulana. In 1998, he returned to Hawaii where he was discovered by international designer Takeo and launched his modeling career. In 1999 he won Hawaii`s Model of the Year and hosted the Miss Teen Hawaii contest. Momoa is best known for his roles as Jason Ioane (1999-2001) in Baywatch Hawaii and as Ronon Dex (2005-2009), an elite firearms and m¨ºl¨¦e warrior in Stargate Atlantis. On July 23, 2007 Lisa Bonet gave birth to their first child, a girl, named Lola Iolani Momoa. On December 15, 2008 Momoa and Bonet had a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
After Stargate Atlantis season 4 shooting was over, Jason Momoa had his dreadlocks cut off. The weight of them was causing him headaches, and even whiplash when filming action scenes. Producers of Atlantis agreed with the decision and had planned to film a scene where Ronon cuts off his hair for season 5`s Broken Ties, but that change was ultimately overruled by the SCI FI network. On the first day of filming for season 5, his dreadlocks were reattached, but the process was too taxing, forcing Momoa to switch to using his stunt double`s wig until a custom wig could be made and delivered two weeks later. On November 15, 2008, Momoa was attacked with a broken beer glass in Hollywood. Momoa received around 140 stitches during reconstructive surgery. Momoa also appeared in four episodes of The Game as Roman & has recently been cast as Khal Drogo in the HBO adaption of Game of Thrones.
