    Jason Momoa sported a clean-shaven look in a YouTube video posted Wednesday.

Hawaii-born actor Jason Momoa recently revealed he’s clean-shaven once again.

Momoa posted a YouTube video of himself grooming his iconic facial hair in a desert-like location, possibly the scene of his upcoming film “Dune” based off Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel. The film is expected to hit the big screen sometime in 2020.

“I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change,” Momoa wrote in the YouTube post. He last shaved his signature beard in 2012.

As of this morning, Momoa’s video has garnered more than 1.14 million views.

“Goodbye Drogo,” said Momoa, while shaving off his facial hair in the open desert. “Bye Arthur Curry. Bye Declan.”

Momoa was last seen sporting a full beard in his roles as Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones,” Arthur Curry in “Aquaman” and “Justice League,” and numerous other films.

Most men typically shave off their facial hair as soon as it gets too unruly to maintain. Momoa shaved off his facial hair for a different cause: To protest water bottles and promote recyclable aluminum.

“I just want to do this to bring awareness, because plastics are killing our planet,” Momoa said.

Some fans took to Twitter to share their disappointment and devastation, tweeting “RIP” and posting crying memes.

The fresh clean-cut Momoa looks like a grown-up version of his Jason Ioane character in “Baywatch.”
