“There’s a lot of shows that prepared me for ‘Game Of Thrones’ and this is just a continuation,” he told ET’s Lauren Zima at the “See” premiere at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, California on Monday.
“You know, I never got to fight on ‘Game Of Thrones,’ I never got to have babies and then grow old and be married, so this is all the things I never got to exercise.”
He added: “A lot of things didn’t really happen [on ‘Thrones’.] I just fell in love and then I died. I can do more! I can speak English! I can smile!”
In “See,” Momoa plays Baba Voss, the father of twins who have the power to see in a post-apocalyptic society where all surviving humans are blind.
Back in September, Momoa shared the trailer for “See” and said to his almost 14 million Instagram followers: “this show was the greatest thing I’ve ever worked on …”

The 40-year-old added in the interview with ET that huge success of “Aquaman” and “Game of Thrones” encouraged him to get involved in the production process for the next installment of DC Comics’ underwater blockbuster.
“There’s a lot more in store on so many more levels,” he said about the “Aquaman” sequel, which is currently slated for December 16, 2022.

“That’s actually the first thing I said to her — ‘Your life’s going to change,'” Momoa told ET. “I’ve been hiding for a good solid 18 years and all of a sudden, ‘Aquaman’ happened and boom!”
Momoa’s film requests continue to flood in with Collider reporting he’s just been cast in the upcoming Netflix thriller “Sweet Girl” alongside “Dora The Explorer and the Lost City of Gold” rising star, Isabela Merced.
“See” will be available to stream on Apple TV + on November 1st.
