The only bad thing about Momoa is that he SHAVED his beard! ?


Johnny Depp is amazing in any role he plays, I can't even chose my favorite film with him


I would say, no matter how many roles Radcliffe has, no matter how many successful helms her has, everyone will always call him 'Harry Potter' ?
Though, he is a very talented actor
