Jason Momoa Respond To Sexual Violence

In an interview with the New York Times, the Aquaman star discussed a question he was asked about his Game of Thrones character Khal Drogo on another occasion.

When a reporter asked whether he had any regrets about performing the sequence in which Drogo sexually attacks Daenerys, played by Emilia Clarke, the 42-year-old expressed his dissatisfaction.

“Well, it was important to depict Drogo and his style,” Jason replied. “You’re playing someone that’s like Genghis Khan. It was a really, really, really hard thing to do. But my job was to play something like that, and it’s not a nice thing, and it’s what that character was.

“It’s not my job to go, ‘Would I not do it?’ I’ve never really been questioned about ‘Do you regret playing a role?’ We’ll put it this way: I already did it. Not doing it again.” He expressed that an actor is powerless when it comes to choosing what they can and can’t do. 

“There are producers, there are writers, there are directors, and you don’t get to come in and be like, ‘I’m not going do that because this isn’t kosher right now and not right in the political climate.’ That never happens. So it’s a question that feels icky.”
