It’s hard to picture Jason Momoa without his signature beard. That’s because it’s been such a major part of the aesthetics of some of his most notable roles, like Khal Drogo and Aquaman.
But those days are gone. Momoa has kissed goodbye to his facial fuzz (for the first time since 2012, he says). And he filmed himself shaving it off.
“Goodbye Drogo, goodbye Arthur Curry, goodbye Declan,” said Momoa as he sheared clumps of hair off his face.
In the video, Momoa says the reason he’s decided to part ways with his beard is because he wants to raise awareness of the destructive impact of plastics on the environment. He goes on to advocate aluminium recycling.
