When he moved back to Hawaii after high school, he started a modeling career, which shortly resulted in an acting career. Since that time, more movie characters have kept the celebrity active, and 2014 found him shooting Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. That year also saw the launch of Road to Paloma, which Momoa starred in, directed and co-composed.
Jason Momoa was born in Honolulu on August 1, 1979, so when a youngster moved to Norwalk, Iowa, where he was raised by his mom. After graduating from high school, Momoa moved back to Hawaii and registered in the University of Hawaii. But his life would shortly take a fateful turn when he was found by Takeo, a global fashion designer—an occasion that led to the beginning of Momoa’s modeling profession. His good looks and carved physique brought him rapid success, as well as in 1999, Momoa won Hawaii’s Model of the Entire Year and walked the runway for Louis Vuitton in the Governor’s Fashion Show.
Momoa shortly turned his sights to playing, as well as in 1999 he tried out to get a lead character on the international smash TV show Baywatch (understood only at that stage, the show’s 10th season, as Baywatch Hawaii). He beat out 1,000 other performers for the character of Jason Ioane, a component that he played for a couple of seasons. The show finished in 2001, and Momoa spent some time traveling the planet, notably seeing Tibet, where he found Buddhism.
