The talented actor has had the fortune of being involved with big name projects, but he still maintains a mysterious edge to his persona. He peels back the curtain a bit in a new video called Canvas of My Life, which Momoa narrates. It follows his journey from son to nomad and eventually to Father, and like most his career started with plenty of influence from his parents, specifically his Mother.
Her love of the arts and outdoor activities exposed Momoa to some of his greatest passions that remain to this day, something he is trying to pass on to his three kids. Momoa's an energetic individual, boisterous even, but at the heart lies a man just trying to come to terms with the fact that his kids are growing up, and that his current love of acting takes precious time away from them.
"But now, my passion for storytelling pulls me away for long periods of time. It scares me. The nomadic lifestyle that once inspired me now takes me away from the things that I love most. Ohana, my family, I'm afraid of what I'm going to miss. The laughs the cries. Being able to help them, teach them. I don't want to miss those moments. If I think about it, I only have five more years, five summers until I'm not the center of their universe."
Momoa describes what he wants to teach them in these few remaining years of influence, saying "To learn respect for our natural resources, because if they can admire nature's truest colors, then they can begin to see the beauty in all things. To be aware of those inconspicuous and overlooked details of life. I want to give them my eyes."
