Former Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa recently headed over to Belfast to visit the set of the final season of the series. While there, he was told just what kinds of things would go down in the final struggle for control of Westeros.
Speaking with EW, he shared his overall reaction, and it is glowing:
“Just knowing how amazing this season is going to be…It’s going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV. It’s going to be unbelievable. It’s going to f— 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!”
Now, obviously, with Momoa visiting the set, we can’t help but question the reason why. In fact, when it was first revealed that he was in Belfast, we were one of the outlets to bring up a flashback as a potential reason for his presence. Well, we’re sorry to say, but Momoa will not be reprising his role as the long since dead Khal Drogo.
“I just showed up to see [producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I just happened to see people on set. 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.’”
We’re sure someone out there is sad to hear that, but it makes sense. Regardless, Momoa is speaking some big words about the series finale, and it’s doing nothing but getting us amped for a season that may not even hit until 2019.
