Aquaman star Jason Momoa was on hand to show his support for the All Blacks during their weekend sevens game against the Argentina Pumas.
The Hollywood superstar took to Instagram to show his pleasure at being able to attend the event. Sporting a retro New Zealand jersey, he posted: “My first 7s tournament,” the Honolulu, Hawaii native wrote on the social media site. “So thankful to meet the @allblacks7s and go on the field. Win or lose. I bleed all black. @allblacks Mahalo.”
In the post, he had tagged former player Glenn Ennis, as he wrote “love you bro Aloha J”.
Following the game, in which the All Blacks prevailed 26-21, Momoa was pictured with the players in the changing rooms celebrating the victory.
According to the Daily Hive, it wasn’t just for pleasure that the star was in Vancouver. Momoa was in the Canadian city shooting the Apple sci-fi show See.
However, following his appearance at the HSBC World Series, he was pictured attending a Vancouver Canucks game against the Arizona Coyotes. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to bring the ice hockey the same luck that he brought the All Blacks, as the Canucks lost in overtime.
It was a manic weekend for the star, who first rose to fame playing Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, as he also appeared at Saturdays Comic-Con event in Cleveland.
Momoa’s rise to fame continued as he first portrayed Aquaman in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 before playing the same character again in the Justice League in 2017.
His portrayal of the same character in the self-titled film has received widespread positive reviews and has grossed over $1.2 billion in the box office.
