After being a fan favorite character during season one of Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa has soarn to new heights with Aquaman and Justice League. Momoa is now speaking out about how playing Aquaman had changed his life and how grateful he is.
“I haven’t been an actor who’s been able to pick and choose roles, and being a family man, it’s been about putting food on the table.”
“This has been the best moment of my career because the superhero roles are letting me get the other roles I want.”
This is great news for Momoa and it’s truly heartwarming to hear about his hard road to success. Momoa found out he got the part of Aquaman in either 2012 or 2013, but said it was really difficult keeping quiet.
“I was trying to get any role I could, and not having much luck. So, knowing what your future is going to be in the next five or six years and having to keep your mouth shut is brutal.”
Perhaps he thinks telling people he would be Aquaman would have helped him get other roles. Regardless, his popularity will only grow with the release of both Justice League and Aquaman.
Justice League hits theaters on November 11th, 2017.
