Game of Thrones
Momoa struck me from the first moment he appeared on screen, I mean his physical stature alone helped him to stand out, and I enjoyed the chemistry that he had with Emilia Clarke. I’m going to avoid the scene after their marriage from the television show, as I still don’t understand why the creators changed it from the scene in the book, which was consensual, to what they filmed.
He was the archetypal man of action, but I liked the fact that they had softer sides of Drogo, when he interacted with Daenerys, their relationship building slowly throughout the first season. His protectiveness reached it’s height during the scene in which Daenerys’ brother threatened both her life and that of their son, resulting in one of the most memorable death scenes in a show packed with on screen deaths.

I loved the fight scenes, the character moving with purpose and taking the smallest amount of movements to defeat his opponents, Drogo’s fight with Mago, clip Uploaded by chaoticgreece.
It is clear that he made a impact on more people than just me, given the amount of youtube videos amongst other things that are dedicated to both Drogo and Daenerys.

I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
