Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke’s Sweetest Friendship Photos

The Game of Thrones (sun and) stars took their onscreen relationship and turned it into an epic, offscreen friendship

01. Moon of My Life, My Sun and Stars

In April 2011, Game of Thrones premiered, with Emilia Clarke playing Daenerys Targaryen and Jason Momoa playing Khal Drogo. The beginning of their onscreen relationship was a traumatic one, with Clarke’s character being sold to Momoa’s for 10,000 Dothraki soldiers, but still, as Daenerys coped with her reality and a relationship between the two grew, Khal Drogo’s death at the end of season one was devastating to viewers.

As for Clarke and Momoa, the onscreen couple became the sweetest offscreen pals.

First Meeting

Clarke told Rolling Stone about the first time she met Momoa in “a hotel lobby in Belfast,” saying that she had arrived and was exhausted when, “from the other side of the hotel lobby I hear, ‘Wifey!’ and this huge Hawaiian man comes bounding over to me, picks me up and genuinely gets me in a rugby tackle to the floor. It was only when he picked me back up and dusted me off that I was like, ‘Who are you?'”

An epic first meeting for an epic friendship!

Cast Hang Out

In June 2014, Momoa posted a photo celebrating the wrap of season 4 with his costars — including Clarke — captioning the post, “Amazing finale Greatest show in the world. So proud love ya j.”

Lots of Laughs

In Oct. 2015, Emilia referred to one of the series’ famous lines, captioning a photo of the pair reunited in Paris, “Well I guess the sun rises in the west and sets in the east then, huh?” She added, “Paris fashion week just kicked off,” and threw in the hashtags, “momoaloveforlifebaby, #nomorebeerleftinparis and #bestdresseddothraki.”

Hats Off

From the same evening, Momoa posted sweet photos of his former costar, joking, “Really sorry I trusted u Thanks for killing me. I’d do it again though.”

Selfie Time

Momoa captioned another selfie of the pair, “Goofballs @emilia_clarke my khalessi.” He added, “What a woman.”

Big Smiles

In November 2017, Momoa flew to Belfast to hang with the GoT cast (sparking rumors that he might be returning to the show in the process) and got some quality time in with Clarke.

Graham Norton asked the actor of his reunion, “Fans must go crazy when they see the two of you together?” To which Momoa responded, “I go crazy when I see her!”

Clarke shared on Instagram of the reunion, “When life is so good that your sun and stars is in your city…you lose your eyes and gain 5 grins (and gins) where until now they’d only been one… (*grins-there’s always more gins.)


Awwwwww. #FriendshipGoals.

Giggly Group

Momoa shared another photo of the pair reuniting, captioning a cuddly snap, “Crazy mad insane LOVE for this queen it’s truly like bubbles of giggles are in our bellies when we are together. It’s a shame we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like but when we do i feel like a f—–g KHAL. He concluded with “love u @emilia_clarke always forever” and added in Dothraki, “Yer Jalan Atthirari Anni,” which of course means “moon of my life.”

Total Fanboy

Even Momoa has “to fanboy out sometimes” at the incredibly cool celebs he gets to spend time with. On a photo with Gal Gadot (who plays Wonder Woman) and Clarke, he wrote, “I’m so honored to know these two amazing women queens goddesses @gal_gadot @emilia_clarke Wonder Woman aka amazing mother warrior aka saves my ass all the time in [Justice League] And Khalessi aka mother of F—–g dragons aka my boo aka moon of my life” adding the hashtag, “#icantbelievetheyloveme.”
