I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.- Jason Momoa on getting to play Aquaman (via racialicious)
My country is thankfully really good at handling storms and putting itself back together! I was lucky enough to get power back within 24 hrs (it knocked out 90% of the power grid, they even ran out of replacement poles) though everyone else in the fam is still out.
It was just really shitty luck because we’ve dodged any storms all hurricane season, we’re in the last month and a half of it - and we got hit by two storms in a week? Such a dick move from Mother Nature :(
