Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa does the Haka Down Under
Jason Momoa and UFC fighter Mark Hunt on the Gold Coast in Australia.
The actor who played Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, Jason Momoa, has been spotted performing a stirring Haka while filming in Australia.
Momoa, 37, is on the Gold Coast filming Aquaman and took some time out from filming to visit a local MMA (mixed martial arts) gym.
He popped down to Heartbreak Conditioning to lend his support to New Zealand born Samoan UFC fighter, Mark Hunt.
Hunt, who is a UFC legend in New Zealand and Australia, is in training for what will be a tough fight against American Derrick Lewis on June 10.
A group of men, including Momoa, performed a traditional Haka in front of Hunt to wish him luck in his upcoming fight.
The New Zealand Haka is a ceremonial war dance made world famous by the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby team. While the Haka started as pre-battle war dance by Maori warriors it can now also be performed as a ceremonial dance to celebrate achievements, farewells and weddings.
The Hawaiian-born Momoa performed the Haka for his Game of Thrones audition which won him the role of the Dothraki king.
