Jason Momoa: (about the episode "Broken Ties") It's awesome! It's probably the best episode - the hardest thing as an actor to do. Because even though not a lot is scripted, for Ronon there's not a lot of dialogue. It's his looks and a lot of pain that he goes through. Just a lot of pain.
Jason Momoa: (about being in shape for "Stargate Atlantis") Before the season starts, what I try to do is climb, get in shape, and ride a bike. Once we start rolling, everything dissipates so by the end of the year, I am all ugggh. Until they come in and say, "Ummm, you are supposed to be the bulk of the show!" - then I would go to the gym…It is a good thing I don't have to take my shirt off. I am so excited to wear clothes. I hate taking my shirt off!
Jason Momoa: (about his wig for his character Ronon) You think I can't play this character without the hair? But it's fine for this season. Ok, I'll do it. It cost them $10,000 for this wig. I'll wear it. As long as nothing medically happens with my neck.
Jason Momoa: (about if he has any traits in common with his character Ronon) Not too many, Ronon is primal; we only share the hair.
