They say you learn something new every day. You know what we learned today? That our favorite Khal, Jason Momoa, started his career on BAYWATCH. (More like babewatch, amiright?) He was on the show from 1999-2001 as the character Jason Ioane. And what’s even better? We have a pic from his first red carpet ever (in 2001, when he was 22!) and it’s the definition of precious.

Look at that babyface!

Woah, no eyebrow scar to be seen here!

Jason went through quite the transformation between his role on Baywatch and his role on Game of Thrones

Here he is on Stargate: Atlantis as Ronon Dex:

Looks a bit more like Khal Drogo!

Here he is, sans beard, for the premiere of Conan the Barbarian:

There’s that eyebrow scar we know and love.

And here he is still looking hot AF, but rocking a shorter ‘do a few years ago:

Is this what a modern Khal on-the-town would look like?

Just look at this fierce transformation, fit for a Khal:

We’re swooning all over the place and we cannot help ourselves. Even though we don’t get to stare at His Dreaminess in Game of Thrones anymore, he has upcoming roles in Frontier, Justice League, and Aquaman. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Jason Momoa, and no, we are not mad about it.
