Jason Momoa, 42, is an American model, actor, writer, director and producer who plays Aquaman in the DC Universe, starred in “Dune” and appears as Baba Voss in the Apple+ series “See”. Known for often playing warrior or badass, which isn’t hard to believe considering his 6ft 4in tattooed body, he’s not afraid to show a humorous side.

Even though Momoa has been acting since 1999, he was first the subject of water cooler conversation as Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones.”
His salary for “See” is estimated at $600,000 per episode and he won $15 million for “Aquaman.”
In addition to appearing in ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘See’, he has been featured in television series such as ‘Baywatch’, ‘Stargate: Atlantis’ and ‘The Frontier’. Momoa has also starred in films such as ‘Johnson Family Vacation’, ‘Conan the Barbarian’, ‘The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part’ and ‘Sweet Girl’.
In 2014 he wrote, directed and starred in “Road to Paloma”. That same year, he landed the role of Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, and made his first cameo in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He would reprise the role first in “Justice League” and then again in the first “Aquaman” film.
His current net worth is $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Youth and career
Joseph Jason Namakaeha was born to Coni and Joseph Momoa in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 1, 1979. He is of mixed Hawaiian, Samoan, and European ancestry. He grew up in Iowa, where his mother is from.
At 19, he began modeling. In 1999, he won Hawaiian Model of the Year. Soon after, he landed the role of Jason Ioane on “Baywatch Hawaii.”
In 2008 he was assaulted with broken glass and received 140 stitches and reconstructive surgery for his injuries. The scar over his eye is one of his most recognizable features.
Momoa worked relatively steadily for the next year. After playing the role of Khal Drogo, he struggled to find more work. But eventually, other projects presented themselves to him.
