Jason Momoa shaved off his signature beard for the first time in seven years, and his fans can’t handle it.

On Wednesday, the “Aquaman” star shared a video on his YouTube channel titled “Goodbye Drogo…I SHAVED!”

“I think 2012 is the last time I shaved,” Momoa said in the video.

“Goodbye, Drogo. Bye, Arthur Curry. Bye, Declan,” Momoa shouted, referring to his roles as Khal Drogo in “Game of Thrones,” Curry in “Aquaman,” and Declan Harp in “Frontier,” as he shaved off pieces of his facial hair and flung them.

The 39-year-old actor said he wanted to raise awareness about ways to be more environmentally friendly.

“I’m shaving this beast off, it’s time to make a change,” he wrote in the video’s description. “A change for the better … for my kids, for your kids, the world. Let’s make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let’s clean up our oceans and our land.”

Momoa said in the video: “I just want to do this to bring awareness that plastics are killing our planet. And I think I have a solution. I don’t want to b—- about it. There’s only one thing that can really help our planet and save our planet, as long as we recycle, and that’s aluminium.”

The actor said that “about 75% of aluminium that’s ever been used is still in circulation today, and it’s 100% recyclable.” In his “quest” to help the environment and cut down on plastic use, Momoa showed off a collection of spring, alkaline, still, and sparkling water, all packaged in recyclable aluminium cans.

“There’s a change coming, and it’s aluminium,” he added. “We’ve got to get rid of these plastic water bottles. Aquaman’s trying to do the best he can.”
