Jason Momoa calls out New York Times for ‘icky’ interview question | New York Post

There are no stupid questions, but there are “icky” ones, according to Jason Momoa.

The 42-year-old Hawaiian actor went cold during an interview with New York Times journalist David Marchese after the writer asked Momoa if he regretted filming a graphic rape scene during his breakout performance as Khal Drogo on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

The pilot episode of the series saw Momoa’s barbaric warlord Drogo assault and force himself on his would-be queen Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, 34.

When Marchese asked whether Momoa “thinks differently about those scenes today,” he replied, “Well, it was important to depict Drogo and his style. You’re playing someone that’s like Genghis Khan.”

He continued, “It was a really, really, really hard thing to do. 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?’ ”
