Jason Momoa’s latest Apple TV+ Show, See, has aired and to say we’re thrilled and loving the show is a complete understatement. Not only does it feature our favorite Momoa—who just happens to have a cosplaying look-alike—but the plot for the series sounds pretty cool, too.
It depicts a planet in which centuries from now, all humans have lost the ability to see. Momoa portray Baba Voss, the leader of a native tribe that lives in the mountains. One day, when a woman roams into his village and gives birth to twins with the power of sight, he’ll do anything to protect them from those who consider their ability evil.
In an interview with People, the Aquaman star disclosed that playing a character who’s blind helped him to become more in sync with his senses—mainly when it comes to his wife Lisa Bonet.
“I don’t know if there’s one, but I do believe, and I don’t want to sound like, Oh, there’s an aura’ and this and that, but there is definitely an energy,” Momoa told people.com. “You can feel energy off of people,” he said. “Now I’m a little bit more attentive to my wife’s energy. Now I’m connected.”
Based on a profile for Esquire earlier this month, the actor seems to be taking that lesson to heart. He called Bonet, with whom he has children Lola,12, and Nakoa-Wolf, 10, a “goddess” and said, “Mama is the boss—everyone knows that.”
And in the same interview, he continued to open up about his role in See, disclosing that he worked with a blindness coordinator behind the scenes to be respectful of the community. Momoa even wore sleep shades to realize the experience.
“It’s just amazing how everything else just opens up your body,” he told Esquire. “You’re so fooled by your eyes. You cut off all these other senses but just feel and smell and hear, and you can echolocate.”
