Khal Drogo, brilliantly portrayed by Jason Momoa, remains etched in the minds of Game of Thrones viewers as one of the most captivating characters to have graced the screen. Known as the Great Khal, he commanded the Dothraki, a revered group of nomadic horse-riding warriors hailing from the eastern continent beyond the Narrow Sea. Although Drogo’s character arc had much to offer, Game of Thrones took an unexpectedly abrupt turn by cutting short the warrior’s journey.
As the first lover of Daenerys Targaryen, Drogo’s untimely demise left a lasting impact on fans, and even close friends of Momoa, like Channing Tatum, have found it difficult to move on from the shocking loss. Tatum recently opened up during an episode of Vanity Fair’s Lie Detector test, expressing his disapproval of his friend’s premature exit from the beloved HBO series.
Channing Tatum Was Angry When Jason Momoa’s Character Died In Game of Thrones
Channing Tatum, known for his close friendship with Jason Momoa, recently made an appearance on Vanity Fair’s famous Lie Detector test. During the interview, Tatum expressed his frustration over the early demise of Khal Drogo, the fierce warrior played by Momoa in Game of Thrones.
When asked whether Drogo’s presence would have improved the show, Tatum responded emphatically, stating,
“100%. I was pissed when he died. I wanted to see him lead an army and do the whole thing.”
The conversation then shifted to Tatum’s loyalty towards Momoa, with the question of whether he skipped watching House of The Dragon, the Game of Thrones spin-off, out of support for his friend. Tatum laughed in response, clarifying, “No, I wasn’t that loyal. I liked House of The Dragon. It was fine, it was good.” In the original series, Khal Drogo met his tragic end when he was unknowingly poisoned by Mirri Maz Duur while she tended to his wounds. This heartbreaking event marked the final moment when Daenerys Targaryen pleaded for mercy on his behalf.
How Are Channing Tatum And Jason Momoa Related?
Jason Momoa and Channing Tatum share a close bond, and a significant factor contributing to their friendship is Tatum’s past relationship with Momoa’s stepdaughter, Zoe Kravitz. During the time when Momoa was married to Lisa Bonet, Tatum and Kravitz began dating.
Their romantic involvement started in 2020, shortly after Tatum’s divorce from Karl Glusman. Sources confirmed their relationship, revealing that it initially began as a friendship before blossoming into something more meaningful.
Interestingly, Momoa wholeheartedly supported their relationship, despite his own separation from Kravitz’s mother, Lisa Bonet. Momoa had known Tatum for a considerable time before Tatum entered Kravitz’s life, and he was genuinely pleased that Kravitz had chosen someone familiar to him. The parting of ways between Bonet and Momoa occurred due to their divergent life priorities and interests.
