BACKSTAGE – Fortune favors the brave, a cliché brought to life by Walter Davidson, who, alongside his brother Arthur and their friend Bill Harley, dreamed up one of the most enduring, quintessential American institutions when they founded the Harley-Davidson motorcycle company in the early 20th century. As depicted in the Discovery Channel miniseries “Harley and the Davidsons” (premiering Sept. 5), these Wisconsin trailblazers weren’t the richest or the first to realize that motorized bikes would revolutionize transportation, but they were the toughest and most resilient.

 

Michiel Huisman, who portrays Walter with a winning, cocky ruggedness, is himself a product of all the variables that comprise the self-made man: determination, talent, some luck, even a few bizarre coincidences. As he sits in the restaurant at the Chateau Marmont, the Dutch actor thinks about the forces that shaped Walter.

 

“Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in the late 19th century was the last of the new frontier,” he says. “It was still a little bit of the Old West, you know? All these guys, but definitely Walter Davidson, were men’s men. He had a wish to carve out his own American Dream—he wants to break out with this thing that his little brother and his brother’s friend are tinkering with.”

 

For an actor who’s played everyone from Daario Naharis in “Game of Thrones” to the street musician Sonny in “Treme” to Blake Lively’s love interest in “The Age of Adaline,” Huisman in person is several shades funnier and looser than his brooding, hunky characters. “I think Walter is a much more physical guy [than I am],” he admits. “You would have to go really crazy on me before I throw a punch. I’ve never done that in my life. I think a part of me wishes that I was more like that.”

EMMYS – After banging around with borrowed tools in a backyard shed for a few years, two boyhood pals in Milwaukee thought they’d finally achieved their dream: a bicycle that required only enough pedaling to spark a pint-sized engine.

 

In 1903, Bill Harley and Arthur Davidson sold three of the putt-putting contraptions they came to call the “silent grey fellows.”

 

By 1920, Harley and Davidson, with Arthur’s brothers William and Walter, made 30,000 distinctively roaring motorcycles a year — more than anyone else in the world.

 

But the path from tin can to two-wheeled tornado was littered with failed plans, flaming wrecks and bloody brawls, as is vividly shown in Discovery Channel’s six-hour miniseries, Harley and the Davidsons. Produced by Raw TV, it’s set to air over three consecutive nights starting September 5.

 

Shot earlier this year in Romania, the series features Bug Hall as Arthur Davidson and Game of Thrones veterans Robert Aramayo as Harley and Michiel Huisman as Walter Davidson.

 

Best known as the brash warrior Daario Naharis on Thrones , Huisman spent much of his adult life on motorcycles, hopping off only after the birth of his daughter nine years ago.

 

“Telling this story about the early days of Harley-Davidson was like a dream for me,” he says, speaking from his native Amsterdam. “On top of that, my character was the embodiment of the Harley-Davidson spirit — a little bit of a rebel, anti-establishment, a wants-to-do-his-own-thing kind of guy.”

RIDE CT – WEST HARTFORD, CT – It was happenstance that the white and teal Harley-Davidson motorcycle ridden by actor Michiel Huisman ended up parked next to a flat black Indian outside of Westfarms mall. Commenting about their adjacency to the “Games of Thrones” star was only natural, though, because of his latest role, and Huisman acknowledged the irony.

 

Best known for playing “sellsword” Daario Naharis on the HBO fantasy-drama series, Huisman depicts one of the Harley-Davidson’s founders, Walter Davidson, in the upcoming Discovery Channel miniseries “Harley and the Davidsons.” The three-parter not only recounts the motorcycle company’s founding in 1903 and its rise to prominence, but also the intense early rivalry that existed between Harley-Davidson and Indian.

VULTURE – Daario Naharis has been at Daenerys’s side — and bedside — for several seasons now. But if Dany wants to be the queen of the Seven Kingdoms, she can’t take her lover as a plus-one. At least that’s the advice Tyrion gave her, causing her to break up with her favorite sellsword before she set sail for Westeros. Michiel Huisman, who plays Daario, chatted with Vulture about his character’s heartbreak and bringing out Dany’s ruthless side.

 

I am so sorry that Dany left Daario behind in Meereen. Are you heartbroken?
Yeah. [Laughs] Well, you know, Daario and I both knew this day would come at some point. Nobody has ever stolen his heart the way she has, and I absolutely knew she was going to break it, but you knew it was going to be worth the ride anyway.

 

Yeah, but he had hoped he would be by her side when she conquered Westeros. And maybe he even wanted to ride a dragon with her someday.

 

Of course he did. There were moments where he thought, “Oh, she’s going to marry Hizdahr,” back in season five, and he worried he was going to be pushed out of the way. Or when Jorah exerted himself more, and it seemed Daario would be pushed out. I don’t think he sees it coming at this point. He’s really excited about Dany finally being ready to take her people, her army, across the Narrow Sea, and he thought he would be part of that. And a leader in that, actually.
