Momoa was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Norwalk Iowa.  After high school, Momoa began college as a marine biology major then transferred to wildlife biology. Before completing his degree he moved to Hawaii. Momoa traveled extensively as a young man, taking up Pastel Painting in Paris, and studying Buddhist teaching is Tibet.

He was working in a surf shop when he was cast as Jason Ioane in television series Baywatch Hawaii.  

Since then, Momoa has also starred in the dark comedy/thriller indie Sugar Mountain alongside fellow FanX17 guest Cary Elwes, the Sundance TV drama series The Red Road,  The Bad Batch with Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey, Bullet to the Head with Sylvester Stallone, and two episodes of Drunk History.  

Momoa directed and co-wrote Road to Paloma, an American drama thriller film that premiered at the  2014 Sarasota Film Festival.

Momoa will reprise his role as Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League and Aquaman movies.

FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ (http://FanXSaltLake.com/) announced that the Jason Momoa, King of Atlantis, will be returning to Salt Lake City for FanX 2018 (FanX®) on September 8, 2018.

Momoa is an actor, director, writer and producer. He is a fan favorite for his roles as Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis and Conan in Conan the Barbarian. He also made his debut in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as Aquaman, starred as Aquaman in the new Justice League movie in 2017, and is starring in Frontier for Netflix. In addition to Justice League, Momoa will headline a standalone Aquaman movie in December 2018.

“Jason Momoa was a huge hit with our fans at our spring FanX in 2017. There were so many of our fans that didn’t get to meet him because he sold out so quickly. When we found out we could bring him back we jumped at the opportunity,” said Dan Farr, FanX Founder and Show Producer. “Jason was so kind and playful with people when he came here last year so we just had to bring him back if we could.”

FanX 2018 will provide fans with The Ultimate FanXperience™. Already FanX 2018 is, without a doubt, the strongest guest lineup of any FanX shows to date, and there are still at least 8 more guests to announce. This year’s event includes some incredible new features including the Evermore Pavilion, a brand new Kidcon, and several yet to be announced additions that will certainly confirm the “most attend” nature of this year’s convention.

“When Ben Affleck agreed to come to FanX18 we knew we wanted to bring another Justice League member to our show,” said Bryan Brandenburg, FanX Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. “With the upcoming release of Aquaman in December and the incredible experience with his 2017 appearance, we really wanted to bring back Jason Momoa, and fortunately for us, the stars aligned once again.”

FanX 2018 is Thursday, September 6 – Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Salt Palace Convention Center. For more information about FanX 2018 or to purchase tickets now, visit http://www.FanXSaltLake.com/.
