Conan the Barbarian actor Jason Momoa has revealed how, one of the highlights of his career was working with director Dan Minahan on Game of Thrones. Jason admitted that he is an aspiring director himself, so getting to work with such a director is always a big deal to him.
Momoa explained, “The most fantastic moment was probably while working with Dan Minahan, he was the director on all my big episodes, and as an aspiring director and storyteller, I just want to work with those kind of guys and learn everything I can.”
Jason then revealed his favourite scene from Game of Thrones. He added, “One big thing for me was one of the few scenes that wasn’t in the book is the scene that I wrote where I ripped the guy’s throat out. I had just come off Conan and I had killed a billion guys a hundred different ways, but Drogo needs to be so much worse.”
Momoa continued, “He killed way more people than Conan. He doesn’t even need to use swords anymore. The bad-ass guys in my life, they just come up and whisper to you. So for this scene where Drogo has to deal with a situation I wanted to not even use weapons.”
