Jason Momoa is one busy guy, what with playing Aquaman in “Justice League” (and the upcoming standalone movie), promoting his new flick “Braven” and preparing to shoot the third season of his historical drama “Frontier”.
In addition to starring, Momoa will also be directing in season three of the Newfoundland-shot “Frontier”, and recently scouted locations in some snowy locales near Corner Brook.
In a series on Instagram posts, the former “Game of Thrones” star shared some spectacular photos and video of the stunning Newfoundland scenery.
Day 1 scout in western Newfoundland I felt like I was in a dream. Everything I’ve ever wanted for this show #frontier has come true. Mahalo to all the amazing producers and crew and guides and friends who have stood by me. Season 3 will be amazing.

While Momoa’s photos highlight some incredible scenery, a report from CBC News indicates that his scouting expedition may have some beneficial consequences for backcountry tourism on the west coast of Canada’s eastern-most province.
“Once what Jason is working on comes out, people start seeing the pictures of what’s here on the west coast, there’s going to be a lot more tourism and people coming to visit based on these scenes,” said Craig Borden, snowmobiling trip guide and manager of Corner Brook’s Rugged Edge outdoor shop, who served as Momoa’s guide.
