Jason Momoa said his time playing Kahl Drogo on “Game of Thrones” helped him prepare for his upcoming Apple TV + series, “See.”
“There’s a lot of shows that prepared me for ‘Game Of Thrones’ and this is just a continuation,” he told ET’s Lauren Zima at the “See” premiere at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, California on Monday.
“You know, I never got to fight on ‘Game Of Thrones,’ I never got to have babies and then grow old and be married, so this is all the things I never got to exercise.”

He added: “A lot of things didn’t really happen [on ‘Thrones’.] I just fell in love and then I died. I can do more! I can speak English! I can smile!”
In “See,” Momoa plays Baba Voss, the father of twins who have the power to see in a post-apocalyptic society where all surviving humans are blind.
Back in September, Momoa shared the trailer for “See” and said to his almost 14 million Instagram followers: “this show was the greatest thing I’ve ever worked on …”
The 40-year-old added in the interview with ET that huge success of “Aquaman” and “Game of Thrones” encouraged him to get involved in the production process for the next installment of DC Comics’ underwater blockbuster.
“There’s a lot more in store on so many more levels,” he said about the “Aquaman” sequel, which is currently slated for December 16, 2022.
“There’s going to be a lot. It’s way bigger!”
