A Fansite for Dutch Actor/Musician Michiel Huisman

Welcome to Michiel Huisman Fan, the fansite for Dutch actor Michiel Huisman. Or as one article called him, 'that hot scruffy dude from all your favorite shows'! 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!

Khaleesi’s badass love interest is reversing gender roles on Game of Thrones, one striptease at a time.



GQ – Even if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, you’ve probably heard something about its porny reputation or the “sexploitation” of its female actors. The show’s creators don’t seem overly troubled. Or maybe they’re just satisfied with their one-man rebuttal: Michiel Huisman. Huisman joined the show in its fourth season (the sixth starts soon), and although technically he plays a gifted fighter named Daario, his purpose, really, is to pleasure Emilia Clarke’s Khaleesi. In an early encounter, she coolly tells him to take off his clothes. His striptease shocks simply because of the role reversal.


Huisman was already a successful actor and musician in his native Holland when he moved to New York and began working with a dialect coach. (“I wanted to do more than just play the Russian thug or Nazi.”) He caught his break on HBO’s Treme, after which he stayed on in New Orleans, making the city home. By contrast to Hollywood, “there’s no risk of me running into a director or another actor when I walk to my favorite coffee place,” he says, alluding to his earlier years pounding pavement in L.A. “It’s only recently that it’s becoming a little bit more fun to be in Los Angeles. You start to feel slowly less like another actor that’s trying to make it.”


If Huisman has an issue now, it’s the Good-Looking Man problem. Brad Pitt had it for a while, so did half the cast of True Blood—the misfortune of being so attractive you’re seen only as a romantic interest. In addition to being Khaleesi’s adviser-with-benefits, he’s partnered with Connie Britton on Nashville, Blake Lively in The Age of Adaline, and Tatiana Maslany on Orphan Black. Oh, and there was this Baz Luhrmann–directed mini-movie for Chanel in which he makes out with Gisele. Huisman is too polite to complain about what is clearly not a problem. And so, in the meantime—stripping for Khaleesi? “At the end of the day, someone’s gotta do it.”

GQGrooming ace Ashley Streicher lets us in on how she got the Game of Thrones star ready for the red carpet

It used to be that big celebrity black tie awards shows called for clean-shaven faces. Anything else would be disrespectful, right? Downright Joaquin Phoenix-y in its disregard for the serious occasion at hand. But we’re in the age of all things bearded now and those good boy grooming moves that were deemed “appropriate” just a few years earlier, now feel, well, basic in their rule abiding-ness. And a perfect case in point of how to pull off some scruff while sporting your best tux is Michiel Huisman from this weekend’s SAG awards.


The Dutch actor, in an elegant Salvatore Ferragamo tux (featuring a swerve-y two-button DB jacket), stepped out with some more-than-stubble, less-than-mountain-man facial hair that added to his overall look’s rakish appeal. But not shaving was just the first step. To truly get ready to go in front of a throng of photographers he needed expert help. Enter Ashley Streicher, of L.A.’s popular Striiike salon. The go-to groomer used some top-notch products (lots of Tom Ford) to get Huisman’s beard and skin ready for the big night. Here’s how it happened:



“I had Michiel wash his hair and wash and exfoliate his face. That provided clean slate.


Next I applied Tom Ford Skin Revitalizing Concentrate to the skin, first warming and emulsifying in my hands then massaging into his skin and beard. I like to soften the beard with this because it makes it easy to trim.

7. Daario, Game of Thrones


POP SUGAR – When news hit that Daario Naharis’s character had been recast, Game of Thrones fans appropriately freaked. As soon as they saw actor Michiel Huisman’s perfect face, however, all was well. Daario did his best to win over Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) this season, and in the process we got to see him in various states of undress episode after episode. Will he be able to rescue Dany in season six? With a butt like his, how could her captors ever say no?




The Netherlands native also recently starred in ‘The Age of Adaline’ and ‘Wild.’


Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman has exited ICM Partners for UTA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.


The Dutch actor’s career has really heated up in the last couple of years. As Daenerys’ ally and lover Daario Naharis on the HBO drama, he first appeared in season four before being promoted to series regular from the fifth season onwards. Last year he pulled triple duty with BBC America’s Orphan Black, playing Sarah’s babydaddy Cal on the second season, and ABC’s Nashville, recurring as seductive music producer Liam throughout the series. The latter gig put Huisman’s real-life singer-songwriter experience to good use, as did his first American television show: HBO’s Treme, in which he starred as addict and jazz musician Sonny during the first two seasons.


On the big screen, Huisman most recently starred as Blake Lively’s latter-day love interest in The Age of Adaline, which came after his steamy encounter with Reese Witherspoon in Wild. And he has even romanced Gisele Bundchen, in the Baz Luhrmann-directed short The One That I Want for Chanel No. 5 last fall. Earlier this year he replaced Benjamin Walker as the male lead opposite Teresa Palmer in the Groundhog Day-like psychological thriller 2:22.


Huisman continues to be represented by the U.K.’s Conway van Gelder Grant, Authentic and attorney J. Franklin Stewart.



“Game of Thrones” hunk Michiel Huisman — whose nude scenes on the series have perhaps become his most notable — doesn’t mind being a sex object.


“I ­always liked that because the roles were reversed,” he says in a Man of the World story of his on-screen relationship with Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen. “Here’s a woman . . . taking full control over her pleasure, y’know? Telling a man to take off his clothes, where it’s often the other way around. I was happy to be a victim of that.”





It certainly isn’t the worst thing he’s ever had to do for a paycheck.


Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman got to cuddle up extra close to supermodel Gisele Bündchen for their Chanel No. 5 commercial “The One That I Want,” directed by Baz Luhrmann.


“I was like, ‘Are you kidding me with Baz and Gisele? For a brand so classy?’ I was so honored to be a part of it,” Huisman tells PEOPLE.


That said, he was a little surprised to work off script for the commercial.


“There must have been some sort of script, and I also asked them a couple of times for it, but it seems to me like Baz just wanted to talk me through it,” Huisman says. “It always felt a little bit more like an artsy short or something … more than a commercial. I remember coming to New York for the fittings, meeting Gisele and Baz and then he just talked us through it. We created a little bit of a story to feed our imagination a little bit.”


Huisman said there won’t be a sequel – not that his wife, actress Tara Elders, had any problem with the first one.


“Chanel is amazing to work for and they’re so generous, so my wife is very happy,” Huisman says.

The actor brings his Game of Thrones smolder to The Age of Adaline


The Age of Adaline, a new romantic drama released Friday, is being sold on the strength of Blake Lively, an actress who’s been a familiar face and name for nearly a decade. For her co-star and love interest, though, the producers went with a star whose name most moviegoers likely couldn’t pronounce even if they knew it—though he might be as familiar as Lively.


Michiel Huisman, the male lead in The Age of Adaline, is among the many actors being pushed to megafame by Game of Thrones. On HBO, the actor plays Daario, the lover of Daenerys; it’s not the most substantial role in all of Westeros, but one that’s helped make a Dutch performer a credible counterbalance to Lively onscreen. And it’s not just Huisman whose persona has gotten a boost from Sunday night’s biggest show: Natalie Dormer, the canny Margaery Tyrell, is now a fixture in the Hunger Games universe, while Sophie Turner, the sensitive Sansa, is in the next X-Men flick. That franchise also played home, in its 2014 installment, to Peter Dinklage, who after years of critical respect crossed the rubicon into stardom with his role as Tyrion. And Emilia Clarke, the mother of dragons herself, steps into the iconic role of Sarah Connor in the next Terminator film. (they forgot Gwendoline Christie being in Star Wars!)

Dutch actor Michiel Huisman — who has starred in such fan favorites as “Orphan Black” and “Game of Thrones” — and I had a similar experience. We both had anxiety about turning 30 (mine decades ago) but realized after that milestone birthday came and went, it wasn’t that bad.


“I never thought about turning 30 until I was about to turn 30. That just seems like an age where things change a lot. Now that I’m 33, it doesn’t matter,” Huisman says.


The subject of age comes up because Huisman stars in the new feature film “The Age of Adaline” with Blake Lively. The feature film opened April 24. She plays a woman who in the 1920s has a freak accident that causes her to stop aging and remains 29 for decades.


Adaline has spent her life avoiding friends and relationships because she doesn’t want the heartbreak of watching her loved ones grow older without her. Huisman plays the man who comes into her life and convinces her that it’s OK to love. That relationship is complicated when a man she loved decades ago comes back into her life.


As far as Huisman is concerned, not aging is a curse.


“One of the things I liked about the script was how is shows there’s a reason why there’s a cycle of life,” Huisman says. “You would miss out on so many things by not getting older.”


If he was forced to pick an age to be for decades, he would be happy with being 33 a little longer.


That’s probably because in recent years he’s not only been on two of the top shows in TV but was a regular on the ABC series “Nashville” and HBO’s “Treme,” plus was in the feature film “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon.


As for the variety of his TV work, Huisman was able to juggle schedules so he could work on multiple series.


“I didn’t plan it that way, but I think it worked out OK for me,” Huisman says. “It gave me some momentum and the opportunity to work with Blake on this movie.”


Along with getting to work with Lively and Harrison Ford, one of the main reasons Huisman likes being in “The Age of Adaline” is that he gets to wear regular clothes. The actor laughs and says it takes hours to get him suited up for an episode of “Game of Thrones.”


Whether it be medieval garb or modern clothes, the way things are going, 33 has been very good to Huisman.


“This feels like an exciting time for me and I have made some giants steps toward my career,” Huisman says. “It’s also very early in my career and I really don’t know what opportunities are awaiting me. I always want to do more. Sometimes I just step back and think about how exciting the promise of more is.”
