Whether you're a new fan or have followed his career, we hope to give you the most up-to-date and complete information about Michiel. Enjoy your stay!

Ranked From Somewhat Adorable To Downright Lovable


BUSTLE – Game of Thrones may gravitate toward ruthless stabbings and the occasional beheading, but underneath all that bloodshed lies the heart of some truly epic love stories. Naturally, many of those said love stories tend to take a backseat due to all of the other tens of thousands of storylines going on, but they’re still there nonetheless and help to make the HBO series the hit success that it is. Granted, even the best Game of Thrones couples have faced their fair share of ups and downs, most of which have ended due to death or betrayal. But hey, when you live in an area like Westeros, that’s the risk everyone kinda has to take.


So who are these mystery duos, you may ask, who have pierced our hearts with their inspiring and, at times, intoxicating romances? I suppose everyone’s opinion on the matter would vary slightly, depending upon your tastes in TV love interests. But on the whole, there are certain Game of Thrones couples that inarguably reign supreme over all others, regardless of your own personal prejudices. No one on this show is perfect. Far from it, actually. However, certain couples manage to get pretty dark close. So without further adieu, here is my official ranking of the top 11 GoT couples, ranked from least to most.


5. Daenerys Targaryen & Daario Naharis




Being a badass queen can take a lot out of you, which is what made Dany’s relationship with Daario so special. This guy absolutely worships the ground she walks on and constantly encourages her to go after what she both wants and deserves. And even though it may have started out as a purely sexual thing, they’ve developed a special connection, which is what made their sudden break-up all the more heartbreaking. Poor Michiel Huisman. (Also, call me?)

Harley and the Davidsons will air over three nights starting on September 5. Starring: Robert Aramayo as Bill Harley, Bug Hall as Arthur Davidson, Michiel Huisman as Walter Davidson, Gabriel Luna ans Eddie Hasha and Annie Read as Anna Harley.


MONSTERS AND CRITICS – Discovery Channel’s Harley and the Davidsons hits our screens in September — telling the story of the birth of one of the world’s most iconic brands.


And it seems the network made good choices when choosing who to cast in their lead roles, with two of the main characters revealing that they were bikers when they were younger.


Bug Hall, who plays Arthur Davidson, told the Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour how he spent his late teens and early 20s crossing America by motorcycle.


Meanwhile, Michiel Huisman, who plays Walter Davidson, also rode bikes through his 20s, though he grinningly admitted: “Once I became a husband, and a dad, I got a car.”


The miniseries was made with the help of the iconic motorcycle brand whose early days it depicts.


Executive producer Dimitri Doganis told the TCA event: “Harley-Davidson were extremely generous to open up their archives to us.”


The period piece is set in Milwaukee at the turn of the century, as Bill Harley and Arthur Davidson create a motorized bicycle before going on to set the standard for motorbikes across the globe, with their brand still a billion dollar business.


Robert Aramayo plays Bill Harley, with Gabriel Luna as Eddie Hasha and Annie Read as Anna Harley.


The miniseries is being made by Raw TV, which produces reality TV such as Gold Rush and Race For The White House.


ET – It’s time to rev up!


Discovery Channel is counting down to the fall launch of its new motorcycle miniseries, Harley and the Davidsons, and Game of Thrones stud Michiel Huisman (a.k.a. Daario Naharis) is at the center of all the exciting action.


ET has the exclusive first look at the official trailer, which debuted Monday at the summer Television Critics Association press tour.


Based on a true story, Harley and the Davidsons centers on the birth of the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle and the founders behind the revolutionary, century-old company, brothers Walter (Huisman) and Arthur Davidson (The Little Rascals’ Bug Hall), and their pal, Bill Harley (Game of Thrones’ Robert Aramayo).

Summer style is nothing without some killer waves.

GQ – Is summer a great time to buzz all your hair off? Of course it is. But it’s also prime time for gents with longer hair to let their waves run wild. And if you’re the type of guy who’s on his way to epic hair-god locks, your best bet is to swear by a consistent daily routine that focuses on hydration and moderate washing. After all, armed with a little knowledge and some follow-up effort, you too can find your follicle happy place. We asked Fabio Moretti, artistic director of Contesta Rock Hair salon, how to get effortless-looking hair (like the impressive mane seen here on Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman) that’s one part European heartthrob and two parts dandy wildman this summer.

Relearn how you shampoo.


“Shampoo is one of the most important things. But shampooing hair every day is not good. Twice a week is about the average amount you should shampoo. Most people don’t really know how to do it. You need to shampoo your scalp, you don’t need to shampoo your hair, even if you have hair down to your knees. A lot of people do the reverse, and this creates a lot of issues in the long run like breakage and split ends.


“If you use cheap shampoo, it will make your hair dry from the beginning. And it’ll be too much effort right off the bat. For thick waves, choose a hydrating shampoo. For fine to thinning hair, go with a volumizing shampoo.”—Moretti


For both types of hair, Moretti recommends using a very small amount of conditioner.

ESQUIRE – Michiel Huisman (it’s pronounced Mich-ee-el Haus-mon) is a busy man. His trip to London to meet Esquire is very much a flying visit, a quick stop-off between Spain, where he’s been filming season six of Game of Thrones, and Bucharest, where he’s shooting Harley and the Davidsons, a big-budget mini-series about the founding of the iconic US motorcycle firm. “Apparently, parts of 21st century Bucharest resemble Milwaukee in 1903,” he deadpans.


The 34-year-old actor originally hails from Amstelveen, just outside Amsterdam, but for the last seven years has been based in New Orleans, with his wife and daughter. Not that they see much of the place. “We’re never there,” Huisman says. Instead, he is generally on location, and delighted to be so. “It still, after all those years, feels like I’m getting away with not working,” he says, “because I’m doing what I really like.”


Huisman fell in love with New Orleans while working on Treme, the post-Katrina HBO drama from the creators of The Wire. That show gave Huisman his first break in America; after Treme came recurring roles in dramas Nashville and Orphan Black, before Huisman joined the epic fantasy world of Game of Thrones. It’s Huisman’s Thrones-work that Esquire readers will likely be most familiar with; he plays the swashbuckling Daario Naharis — übermensch, lover of the Khaleesi, principled sellsword (“and the sword I use is called an arakh, by the way”) and Game of Thrones’ primary male object of desire. Naharis is handsome, charismatic and cool and Huisman in person is pretty much the same. Which might make him sound unbearable but Huisman’s work-ethic can’t be faulted; he’s been a performer since childhood and enjoyed a successful career in the Netherlands as an actor and musician before making the leap Stateside.


Upon moving to America, Huisman worked diligently with an accent coach, replacing his natural Dutch cadences with a smoother international American twang, to broaden his appeal. “Treme allowed me to use whatever natural accent I had,” he says, “but I took the time outside of working on the show to really try and get rid of that.” Now, when not working on Game of Thrones, Huisman takes on as many other projects as he can (as well as the upcoming Harley and the Davidsons, recent film projects have included WWI love story Mountains and Stones and romantic thriller 2:22). He has also fine-tuned his horse riding, again in his spare time and of his own volition. “It was super-fun and I’m very pleased to say that whenever you see me on a horse [in Thrones] that it’s me. No face replacement, no stunt double.”


Despite a packed schedule, Huisman shows no signs of fatigue, or of slowing down: “I still feel like I need to do everything. Maybe that’s because I’m always looking forward. It’s like, ‘That was a year ago, that doesn’t count.'”

And frankly, we’re not mad about that.



GQ – You’d be hard pressed to find someone in the Western world (or in the GQ office, frankly) who’s not excited about the return of HBO’s Game of Thrones*. But the return of the vest, a sartorial minefield that menswear designers have been trying to negotiate for a few seasons now, has been a much harder sell for guys on the street.


So you can imagine how shocked and delighted we were to see actor Michiel Huisman, who plays Daario Naharis on GoT, wearing the hell out of a tweed-vest-and-leather-jacket combination at the show’s season six premiere party Sunday night. Huisman, who we’ve seen wear a lot of great suits, made a rakish departure from the straightforward tailoring most of his male costars wore when he chose these two key pieces from Polo Ralph Lauren’s fall 2016 collection.


The look works because both the vest and the jacket belong to the same color family (the beige tones of the vest get picked up in the jacket’s distressed shoulders and sleeves), and they also have the same spirit of rough, weather-beaten authenticity about them. If Huisman had paired this jacket with a vest from a refined navy three-piece—or put this vest underneath a fresh-looking black lambskin perfecto—this ensemble probably would have fallen on its face.


But instead, he used his celebrity to promote an idea that the designers at Ralph Lauren champion, which is that you can wear a vest without looking like a tryhard, so long as you make like Huisman and find a pairing that doesn’t look contrived. Confused about how to get it right? Click here for our guide on how to master the look.

POPSUGAR – If you like suspenseful movies involving creepy characters and cults, there’s a new film that’s right up your alley. It’s called The Invitation, and it’ll chill you to the bone. Logan Marshall-Green stars as Will, a man still grieving a major loss, who returns to the home he used to share with his now-ex-wife, Eden (Tammy Blanchard). Yeah, that already sounds awkward, doesn’t it? He’s actually going there for a dinner party she’s hosting with her new beau, David (Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman) — peak awkwardness.


Because this is a thriller, it’s not just about uncomfortable human interaction. Things get downright weird when Eden and David reveal they’ve been enlightened by a group of free-spirited people who participate in a way of life called The Invitation. You’ll have to see the movie (opening this Friday) to find out what happens next, but we do have some intel on what you should expect. We got the chance to speak with Huisman and director Karyn Kusama, so here’s what you need to know about the movie — directly from them.


1. It’ll hit you right from the first scene: Without giving to much away, the movie has quite the opening sequence. “Part of what made that scene interesting, I hope on screen but definitely on the page, was the sense that this surprise comes out of nowhere,” said Kusama. “That’s such the experience of living in Los Angeles, at least on the East side. When you’re driving, there’s this sense that anything can lurk out of the shadows and jump in front of your car. I feel like that’s a metaphor for some of the issues in the film: the trauma and surprise of grief and sorrow. The sharp turns that it makes you take in your life.”


2. Huisman researched real cults to prep for the film: “There’s not one particular cult that this was inspired by, but I read a lot about all these different cults,” said Huisman. “Even the famous ones, like the Manson family. I tried to do a little research there to understand what it is that the people who follow them find in them.”


3. It couldn’t have been set anywhere but Los Angeles: While Huisman called out the “mysterical vibe” that LA has, Kusama got into the nitty gritty of why the movie only makes sense to take place there: “Los Angeles and Southern California, and perhaps even California generally, attracts a dreamer personality or a searcher personality. Part of the seduction and the promise of Los Angeles is that it’s a place where you can remake yourself and start all over again. The film is really trafficking in both the well-known histories and mythologies of LA in terms of its fringe movements and fringe belief systems, but also this general hope and idealism that comes with living here, that’s so much about the reinvention of the self.”


4. The ending is unpredictable: “Movies like this need to have an end that stays with you,” said Huisman. “When I read the script, the end of it was so great that I was dying to be a part of it.” It does, however, explore a lot before it gets to that final punch. “I never felt impatient with it because I was so interested by the emotional story and the unraveling story between the husband and wife of Will and Eden,” said Kusama. “I was always really gripped by the emotional suspense of the story. . . . You have to wait for it.”


5. It’s not your typical thriller: “I was intrigued by the idea of letting go as a form of salvation and what happens when you take that too far,” said Huisman. “I thought it was a different approach to the usual thriller concept. It’s very psychological. And in the end, it’s very scary.”


EW – In new thriller The Invitation (in theaters and on VOD April 8), Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) plays a Los Angeleno named Will who is invited to a dinner party by his ex-wife and, in the course of the evening, becomes consumed with paranoia, as a new clip from the movie demonstrates.


What else can we say about the scene? To be honest, given the twist-filled nature of The Invitation — which also stars Michiel Huisman, John Carroll Lynch, and Emayatzy Corinealdi, among others — we’re wary of saying anything at all. Fortunately the film’s director Kary Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body) was good enough to jot down a couple of sentences, putting matters into context.


“In this scene our protagonist, Will, is confronted by David, one of the hosts of the dinner party that reunites Will’s group of old friends,” writes the filmmaker. “Will’s point of view of the evening up to this point has been somewhat unreliable, and David’s probing of his state of mind manages to be both sincere and patronizing in that way that can accompany recent spiritual converts. I’m hoping that the audience might empathize with both characters’ point of view — with Will’s emotional anxiety and mistrust, and David’s desire for connectedness.”
