Speaking in an interview withThe New York Timesto promote his new projects, the reporter asked the star about a controversy that sparked from his role in"Game of Thrones" more than a decade ago. The first episode of the series saw the 42-year-old actor’s warlord character force himself on Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen on their wedding night.
When the reporter asked Momoa if he regrets filming the scene or would have done things differently in light of it seeming like an"older cultural moment," the actor got incredibly uncomfortable and defensive.

"Well, it was important to depict Drogo and his style. You’re playing someone that’s like Genghis Khan. It was a really, really, really hard thing to do," he explained."But my job was to play something like that, and it’s not a nice thing, and it’s what that character was. It’s not my job to go, ‘Would I not do it?’"

Momoa seemed somewhat cold for the remainder of the interview, giving curt answers to questions and, at one point, reminding the interviewer of the three topics that he’s currently at liberty to discuss. As the awkward interview drew to a close, Momoa circled back to the question about"Game of Thrones" in order to explain to the interviewer why it"bummed" him out. In short, the actor wanted to highlight that it wasn’t his place to say"no" to the scene in question.
JASON MOMOA OPENS UP ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE"When you brought up ‘Game of Thrones,’ you brought up stuff about what’s happening with my character and would I do it again. I was bummed when you asked me that." Momoa concluded."It just feels icky — putting it upon me to remove something. As if an actor even had the choice to do that. We’re not really allowed to do anything. There are producers, there are writers, there are directors, and you don’t get to come in and be like, ‘I’m not going do that because this isn’t kosher right now and not right in the political climate.’ That never happens. So it’s a question that feels icky. I just wanted you to know that." headtopics.com
