Jason Momoa, known for his role on “Game of Thrones,” saw his character killed off this season. But the actor wants back on the show, and he’s plotting to bring Drogo back, according to an interview with New York Magazine.
“There’s a possibility you’ll see me do him again,” the actor said of his Barbarian warrior Khal Drogo. And the fact that he’s dead? Minor detail. “It’s a fantasy world, sweetheart.”
“I wrote some scenes and they might try to use them,” Momoa reveals of his crafty plan. “George [R.R. Martin] can only write so much. Something could happen. Drogo could have a twin. You never know!”
Well, we do know, because there's no twin in the book series the show is based on. But Momoa has only read the first installment (aka, season one).
“My wife [Lisa Bonet] let me spend four days straight reading it,” the actor says of “A Game of Thrones.” While reading, Momoa became a fan of warrior Drogo: “I loved him. He was the best guy. And I loved watching him fall in love. Of all the characters, he was the least backstabbing. He didn’t say a lot, but his s-- got handled.”
Even if you never see Momoa again on “Game of Thrones,” rest assured that he’ll continue playing brawny barbarians. In fact, he stars in the upcoming remake of “Conan the Barbarian.” (Typecast much?)
Oh, and he’s already written a “Conan” sequel.
