Jason Momoa says he won't ever reprise Game of Thrones' Khal Drogo: "Let him go"December 3, 2018
Barely a week goes by without speculation arising once more that Jason Momoa will be returning to Game of Thrones.
Momoa reunites with co-star Emilia Clarke? Khal Drogo’s coming back! Momoa has a pint of Guinness with GoT showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss (twice)? Khal Drogo’s coming back!
But, unfortunately, the Aquaman star has told Digital Spy that he hasn’t filmed any scenes for the HBO hit’s final season – so no miraculous resurrection for Drogo, or even any flashbacks.
“Yeah… he’s not coming back,” Momoa said. “Nine years now, let him go.”
The actor also hinted at why he thinks Drogo, who died from an infected wound, had to become one of Game of Thrones‘ earliest victims.
“It’d be a very short series [with Drogo alive],” he said. “Two seasons, he crosses the water and kills everyone. It’s no good if he comes back.”
Post-Thrones, Momoa has found success playing Arthur Curry / Aquaman in the Worlds of DC. After a cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he played a supporting role in Justice League and is now fronting his own spin-off film.
“I always explain Justice League as a weekend in Arthur’s life – it’s just a Saturday and Sunday, and this [Aquaman] is his whole life story,” Momoa explained. “I had to play him a certain way in Justice League and now we get the whole origin.
“Having that outlaw, someone who lives on the fringes of society and doesn’t take crap from anyone… I really like the idea of him being the reluctant king.”
Aquaman is released in UK cinemas on December 12 and US cinemas on December 21.
