Jason Momoa on final season of ‘Game of Thrones: ‘It’s going to f**k up a lot of people’
Jason Momoa may no longer be a part of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” but he continues to have a close relationship with the show’s cast and crew.
With production for the saga’s eighth and final season currently underway in Belfast, Ireland, the 38-year-old actor—who portrayed “Khal Drogo” in season 1—visited his comrades and discovered the looming fate of Westeros.
Although he refused to give out spoilers for the show, Momoa assured fans that the last season would indeed be the wildest one yet.
“It’s going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV,” the “Justice League” star told Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s going to be unbelievable. It’s going to f**k up a lot of people. And it was a bummer because I’m a huge fan and I didn’t want to know what’s going on. I was like, ‘Damn, I didn’t want to know that!” he added.
Six seasons removed from the show, Momoa has continued following the series as a fan and has also grown impatient, wondering what’s in store for the show’s most beloved characters.
“I just showed up to see [producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I just happened to see people on set,” Momoa said. “I haven’t been over there in a long time. You just want to see your friends and you end up make headlines going, ‘Drogo’s back!’ and I’m like, ‘He’s dead! He can’t come back, it wouldn’t work.’”
As of writing, it remains a mystery when the show’s much-hyped season will air on television, with earlier reports suggesting it could premiere in late 2018 or early 2019. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
