"Conan" the original 1982 film was instrumental in launching the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger as an actor

while the movie was a significant introduction to movies for Momoa because he was famous for his television performances, as per IMDb.

However, Momoa held onto bad memories from the film. "I've been part of many things that were really awful into movies that take it completely out of your control.

Conan was one of those. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had and was transformed into a massive pile of trash," ***," Momoa said to GQ.

Momoa's professional career has seen many highs and lows. In the wake of "Conan", he had a memorable time in "Game of Thrones"

only to be killed during the first season. He was then miraculously revived from the dead, and then was smothered in the next season.

Following Momoa's exit from the show "GoT" continued to skyrocket in popularity , but without Momoa.

The show's finale has a negative impression on viewers many years later according to Collider but the issue was not so much that it
