Shortly after Warner Bros. finally confirmed that Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman, a YouTube video from 2012 featuring the actor's Game of Thrones audition started to make the rounds again, showing the intensity that helped him land his breakthrough role as Khal Drogo.
The brief video shows the Hawaiian-born actor performing an intense dance known as the "haka," traditionally associated with New Zealand's Maori tribe that is performed before going into battle. The haka is also performed by New Zealand's All Blacks rugby team before every game.
Jason Momoa only played the treacherous Dothraki warrior Khal Drogo during Season 1 of Game of Thrones, but he is still considered to be one of the hit HBO show's most memorable characters. He was also seen during one of Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) visions in the Season 2 finale, "Valar Morghulis". It's also worth noting that series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff revealed last week that the show will have its first flashback scene in Season 5, with more to follow. Could this open the door for his character to come back at some point?
