Actor Jason Momoa talked about his new TV series “Frontier,” and he said that the Games of Thrones fans will love the new Netflix show. Momoa is known for his role in Games of Thrones as Khal Drogo.
The new show is a drama centered in Declan Harp, portrayed by Momoa, a Native American trader fighting to have the control over the fur industry in the 18th century North America. Just as his role in Games of Thrones as a bloodthirsty warrior, his character in Frontier will be ready to kill.
The actor is also giving life to Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League movie.
Frontier take fans back to the 18th century North America
“Frontier” is the new Netflix series that tells the story of a Native American who trades furs. It goes back to the 18th century, a time where there was no law and when violence was quite frequent, all of which will be described very graphically in the series.
Most of the characters will be men, and it has been available since Friday on Netflix. After its premiere episode, some people think it is a mix between “Game of Thrones” and “The Revenant.”
On its very first episode, Declan Harp castrates British soldiers before skinning them alive. On this, Momoa said that the first thing he did was to warn his mother and tell her he is not always going to be that bad.
During his 16-year career, he has played several brutes and killers, including obviously Khal Drogo. Harp is a goliath half-Irish half-native who lives hidden in the woods, fighting against the British and trying to make himself a way through the fur trade.
The series is a joint effort made by Netflix and discovery Canada.
Jason Momoa is excited about his new projects
But in real life, Jason Mamoa is everything but a violent rebel. He married actress Lisa Bonnet and they have two young children. He uses his Instagram account regularly to let fans know about his favorite activities, which includes rock climbing. He lives in Topanga, California, where he has goats, a donkey, and two dogs.
He said that it is a little tough for his kids to watch his work because it tends to be violent. Fans often asked him to grab them by the throats or to pretend he is about to punch them so they can enjoy a funny picture.
However, he said he is excited for his role as Aquaman in the justice league because it is something his kids can watch. He said he relates to Aquaman – whose mother is from Atlantis and his dad is from Earth – because he is half Hawaiian but he was raised in Iowa by a single mother.
On Frontier he said that he loves the time period. He said he has a collection of sharp objects and furs as the ones used in that time. He also said that the origins of his character are really “cool,” who is seeking revenge on the man that took his family away. He said it is a role that was perfect for him.
