I crash read all of Dany’s stuff…and fell in love with it, and the one thing I came away (with) from it was; man I really want to see this guy, go into battle, I want to see what he’s made of, just being from warriors and knowing the Haka. I talked to my buddy- Irish - Michael Raymond James, he’s a fantastic actor. He told me, you should do the Haka (for your audition). I said, is that going to be alright?…

Jason Momoa performed the Maori Haka in his audition for the part of Khal Drogo on HBO’s Game of Thrones impressing the casting directors and snagging the role of the foreign warrior.

Dances of Life (Maori excerpt)-

“My people, the Maori, arrived by canoe in the islands of Aotearoa, or New Zealand, just 1,200 years ago. Dance is part of our everyday life. It’s our way of carrying our culture into the future." 

The Haka (plural is the same as singular: haka) is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Māori people ofNew Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment.[1] The New Zealand rugby team’s practice of performing a haka before their matches has made the dance more widely known around the world.
