Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo)
This shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone who’s seen him on Game of Thrones (playing the character Khal Drogo), but Jason Momoa actually started out his career as a model. At 19 years old, he also worked part-time in a surf shop before being cast in the action drama series Baywatch Hawaii. From there, he eventually got his role as the character Ronon Dex on the science fiction television series Stargate Atlantis. On the big screen, he made a brief appearance as the DC comics character Aquaman in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and he’ll reprise that role in the future Justice League film.
