Jason Momoa

Birth name:
Joseph Jason Namakaeha Momoa
Date of Birth:
1 August 1979 Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
6' 4" (1.93 m)
A model and actor, Jason was born in Honolulu but soon moved to Norwalk, Iowa where his mother raised him. Like his character on "Baywatch" (1989), Jason longed to learn about his Hawaiian roots and returned to the islands to attend college. It wasn't long before international designer Takeo discovered the 6' 4", green-eyed actor and launched his modeling career. Jason won the 1999 "Hawaii's Model of the Year", participated in the prestigious "Governor's Fashion Show" and walked the runway for Louis Vuitton I Hawaii. He also hosted the 1999 "Miss Teen Hawaii USA" contest. His passion for adventure took Jason to the top of Fountain Bleu France. An avid rock climber, the Fountain Bleu was a challenge that Jason conquered head on. A natural athlete, Jason enjoys ice climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, long board skateboarding and roller hockey. He also has a love for the arts, culture and spirituality. He dabbled in pastel painting in Paris and in 1999 traveled to Tibet, where he deepened his spiritual knowledge of the Buddhist teachings. When not on the set of "Baywatch" (1989) or climbing the most exhilarating mountains or meditating to gain inner strength, Jason can be found supporting many charities and community groups. He promotes hunger awareness by working for the Hawaii Food Bank campaign and speaking to students at various schools. Jason believes he is blessed by strong family values and enjoys sharing his experiences, especially with the youth of today.
