Jason Momoa wants people to know that there are things that an actor has control over and there are things that are not.
Speaking to the New York Times in an interview published on Friday, July 30, the 42-year-old Aquaman star expressed displeasure over a question about his role as Khal Drogo on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. During the interview, the reporter asked about a scene in the pilot episode in which Drogo sexually abused Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and whether the actor regrets something.
“Well, it was important to portray Drogo and his style,” Jason replied. “You play someone who is like Genghis Khan. It was a really, really, really difficult thing to do. But it was my job to play something like that, and it’s not a nice thing, and that was the character. “
He continued, “It’s not my job to say, ‘Wouldn’t I?’ I’ve never really been asked if you regret playing a part? We put it this way: I’ve already done it.
