Ever since I jumped on the Game of Thrones bandwagon, I have been hooked. Always having been a passionate lover of period-dramas, I had no doubt I would immediately latch onto the characters and story plots of this fantasty/historical fiction drama.
Upon the first introduction of Khal Drogo, the warlord of the Dothraki horse-lords, I found myself reasonably terrified of this beastly character: eyes lined dark as onyx, rumbling growl for a voice, a body as hard as stone…*cue drool.*
Wait, what’s this other bubbling feeling…is it…some sort of…arousal??
Somehow, I found myself strangely attracted to this barbarian, who used brute force to rule his people (and his wife until she cleverly wielded some power via sexual manipulation), and at times merely grunted to give a reply. All logic to hate him for the sexist, testosterone-driven, barbarian man he was went out the window. All I could think about was that growl and golden chiseled out bod. Oh my…!
And then one day, I heard that signature growl during a commercial break. My head popped up expecting a possibly-resurrected Drogo for next season’s promos. (Alas, he isn’t the Dragon’s child like his wifey, who walked out of his funeral pyre completely unscathed.) Hark! That’s no Drogo — that’s Conan the Barbarian! No beard or darkened eyes, but the same delicious bod and signature voice.
Who is this man, I wondered? So sexy, so beastly, so perfectly man-baric! Upon a swift Google search, my mystery man was found: Jason Momoa. A few quick facts gave me the dish on my new TV crush:
- 31 years old
- Former model
- Former actor on Baywatch
- Born in Hawaii
- Half Native Hawaiian and partially mixed with German, Irish, and Native American
- Has two kids with wifeLisa Bonet (Denise from The Cosby Show), who is 13 years his senior
I’m not sure about anyone else, but everything else besides the surprise celebrity baby-mama makes complete sense. Hawaiian, Baywatch actor, model? I think I secretly knew the full capacity of Khal Drogo’s sexiness under all that barbaric ware.
Although, looking at his pictures as a clean-cut beach hunk, compared to the more raw and savage looks of Khal Drogo and — I still pick the latter two. Hm, maybe I have learned more about my taste in men than I ever knew before.
