Jason Momoa Can Still Speak Dothraki from GAME OF THRONES

Jason Momoa Can Still Speak Dothraki from GAME OF THRONES

Did you take a foreign language like Italian or French in high school? How many years of it did you take? For me it was three years of Spanish, which works out to roughly 27 months of my life spent learning it. And if I had to describe my ability to communicate in Spanish now I would have to go with “horrendous.” And I’d have to tell you in English. So needless to say I think Jason Momoa, who only played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones during its first season*, still being able to speak fluent Dothraki all these years later is impressive.

Justice League‘s Aquaman was recently a guest on The Graham Norton Show, and after showing Momoa some not-so-great “Drogos” cosplayers, the host asked about his fluency in Dothraki. Turns out Momoa still knows how to communicate in the horse lord language.

My man!

And keep in mind, while Dothraki might be a made-up language (aren’t they all?), he can’t just fake it and get away with it. Dothraki was created by David J. Peterson for the show, and you can study it yourself. So if you want to threaten to rip your enemy’s entrails out and feed them to the sheep, or to call your khaleesi the “moon of my life,” you literally have to know what you’re talking about.

I probably would have paid more attention in high school if I studied Dothraki.

*No, I didn’t forget about him showing up in Daenerys’s vision in the House of the Undying. That was still five-and-a-half years ago!
