Jason Momoa


A model and actor, Jason Momoa was born in Honolulu but soon moved to Norwalk, Iowa where his mother raised him. Like his character in Baywatch, Jason longed to learn about his Hawaiian roots and returned to the islands to attend college. It wasn't long before international designer Takeo discovered the 6'4," green-eyed actor and launched his modeling career.
Last year, Jason won the 1999, "Hawaii's Model of the Year," participated in the prestigious "Governor's Fashion Show," and walked the runway for Louis Vuitton I Hawaii. He also hosted the 1999 "Miss Teen Hawaii USA" contest.

His passion for adventure took Jason to the top of Fountain Bleu France. An avid rock climber, the Fountain Bleu was a challenge that Jason conquered head on. A natural athlete, Jason enjoys ice climbing, mountain biking, snowboarding, long board skateboarding and roller hockey. He also has a love for the arts, culture and spirituality. He dabbled in pastel painting in Paris and traveled to Tibet this year, where he deepened his spiritual knowledge of the Buddhist teachings.
When not on the set of "Baywatch Hawai'i" or climbing the most exhilarating mountains or meditating to gain inner strength, Jason can be found supporting many charities and community groups. He promotes hunger awareness by working for the Hawaii Food Bank campaign and speaking to students at various schools. Jason believes he is blessed by strong family values and enjoys sharing his experiences, especially with the youth of today.

LIFE'S A BEACH Jason's a newcomer to the spotlight and definitely one to watch (not that he's hard to look at!) He plays "Jason" (we know, quite a stretch) one of the lead cast members, on Baywatch Hawaii. Even Jason admits he's a lucky guy and not just because he spends his days tanning in the Pacific Sun. "I never did the struggling actor thing, never did drama in high school. I never read plays, but now I can't get enough of it." Funny, we can't get enough of him!

SWIMS WITH FISHES Jason always knew he would spend his days by the ocean, but he thought he would be studying it, not frolicking in it (the surfer dude planned on being a marine biologist). So, just how did this Hawaiian hottie end up in front of the camera? "I went to Hawaii to hang out with my father and uncle (famed surfer Brian Keaulana) on the set of the film "In God's Hands" when I met my managers." The managers sent him off to do runway modeling for Louis Vuitton, but had him back in Hawaii when Baywatch came to town. "I kept trying out for a month and then got the job the day I was supposed to leave."

PARADISE FOUND After spending a year in the Hollywood limelight, introspective Jason needed a break from his newfound fame. "In my off-season, my managers took me to Tibet." The trip was quite meaningful for the actor, who happens to be studying Buddhism, a philosophy for which he has the utmost respect. "Tibet is serene, amazing, the people are so beautiful. They have nothing (materially) and they're so happy-- it kinda puts everything in check. It was a great experience, probably my best life experience." Next on his travel calendar is a trip to the Swiss Alps and then he's off to France for what he refers to as "the Mecca of climbing," followed by time spending some time with Mom in Paris (how sweet!)
SHE'S ALL THAT Although he's taken at the moment, Jason does have opinions about what makes a girl shine. What qualities does he find irresistible? "Honesty, humor and spontaneity." An ideal date for Mr. Washboard Abs is "to go out to a nice dinner, have good conversation and maybe go to a movie."

EXTREME JASON In addition to surfing, kayaking, snowboarding and camping, Jason's obsessed with a dangerous sport. "I went to Canada to do some mountaineering & discovered ice climbing." Always up for a challenge, he's quite confident about his new passion saying that he likes the fact that it's a "real mental game."

PICTURE PERFECT This isn't Jason's first experience with Teen magazine. "When I was thirteen, a girl in my neighborhood sent my picture into Teen for their GUY OF THE YEAR contest." Surprise! Jason was picked and profiled in the mag. "I got beat up all through high school 'cause of that."
