Handsome, tall, muscly, beard.
Just really sums him up, doesn’t it?
Though he was in things before Game of Thrones, Momoa rose to prominence with his role as Khal Drogo, where he basically looked good and behaved appallingly until he eventually died.
After that, everyone fancied him and fully fell for his rugged good looks, leading him to land roles like Aquaman and Declan in Frontier.
A big factor in people fancying him has to be the beard, though. It defines him. Momoa is 100% rugged and the facial hair plays a big part in that.
Well tough luck, since he’s shaved it off.
To his credit, Jason did it because he wanted to raise awareness for using less plastic – something very close to a lot of our hearts – in a bid to save the planet.
He spoke about his intentions as he shaved his beard off…
“Goodbye Drogo. Bye Arthury Curry. I just want to do this to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet.”
Here he is:
In his Instagram post, he expanded on his point, saying:
“I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change. A change for the better … for my kids, your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans, our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make the switch to infinitely recyclable aluminium.“
People were understandably rocked by this new face:
Momoa is currently in Jordan, filming the remake of Dune. Presumably the producers want him clean-shaven for that, but it’s still sad to see the beard go.
I’m insanely jealous of it.
Jason stars alongside Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac and Josh Brolin in the film remake directed by Denis Villeneuve.
