You know how it is when you have been waiting for character A and character B of your favourite show to meet up finally when character A is about to travel to where character B is, character B moves away and you curse the showrunners and their generation…that’s what Jason Momoa did to us.
The Aquaman star (he’ll always be Khal Drogo to us) did the unthinkable– he shaved off his beard.
The actor did this in a YouTube video that had us blubbering at the end unable to believe what he’d just done.
“Goodbye DROGO, AQUAMAN, DECLAN, BABA! I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change,” he said in his caption, “A change for the better…for my kids, for your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans and our land. Join me on this journey. Let’s make a switch to INFINITELY RECYCLABLE aluminum. Water in cans, NOT plastic.”
You know why this transformation was especially painful, well, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu just joined team #beardgang
Imagine if the two of them stood side by side with iconic beards gleaming in the summer sunshine.
But now we would probably never get to see that because Khal Drogo decided he wants to change looks.
He now looks like this
Difficult to recognize right? We still love him, this new look is just going to take some getting used to.
On the bright side, he did it for something worthwhile like recycling, so we know that the Game of Thrones star still has a heart of gold and is doing his bit to help the planet explaining that 75 per cent of aluminium that has been used is still in circulation today and it is 100 per cent recyclable.
Goodbye Khal Drogo, we’ll always remember you.
