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.”

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.”

MICHIEL HUISMAN: “I JUST PLAY ONE AMERICAN – AND NOBODY SEEMS TO QUESTION THAT ‘

Michiel Huisman – as he himself occasionally suddenly realized – ‘just really to succeed “because in America. In the new ELLE (from today in the shop!) You can read an interview with the Game of Thrones -acteur who shines alongside Blake Lively in June in the movieThe Age of Adaline . But because we had so much to ask Michael, we already start here at ELLE.nl.

By Iris Vandemoortele

 

 

You’re starting June 18 in The Age of Adaline with Blake Lively. What kind of movie is it?

 

“It’s a very beautiful romantic drama. It has a kind of magic, and it looks beautiful. It is also very fashionable or so. Blake looks incredibly beautiful, as you would expect from her. She plays a woman born at the beginning of the twentieth century and in a bizarre manner at any given time is not older than 29. So we see her in all these different periods, in the twenties, thirties, so and the clothing styles and the way it was filmed, are wonderful. “

 

 

Another opponent is Harrison Ford [he plays opposite Harrison Ford]. What was it like working with him?

 

“Harrison Ford plays my father. The moment he came on the set, it was just very exciting. Then you think: how will it be? What will he think of me? I noticed immediately that he has an incredible passion for acting. I thought: if I over thirty years still with so much passion in a set can be, that would be really cool. I can imagine it. I’m sure now. And if you with nice, talented people can keep working – why stop?

Mention Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman to a female friend, and the reaction is usually something about dreamboats, perhaps with some slightly labored breathing, and then a question: “Where did he come from, and how is he suddenly everywhere?” The 33-year-old Dutch actor is a rare hybrid species: appealing to fans of beefcake, medieval history, and television of the highest quality. On Thrones, he plays Daario Naharis, the dashing soldier who slayed for and seduced Daenerys Targaryen this past season, resulting in a nude scene that was the male version of #BreaktheInternet and a re-upped contract that made Huisman a series regular.

 

Huisman got started as a child actor in his native Holland, where he worked his way up to a top box-office draw. His first project in the U.S. was only five years ago, a role on HBO’s New Orleans drama Treme, after which the floodgates opened: In the past two years, along with Thrones, he’s appeared as a wizardly record producer on ABC’s Nashville; a tech genius and the main character’s baby daddy on Orphan Black; and Reese Witherspoon’s fling in Wild. Last fall, he also starred in a short film for Chanel No. 5 with Gisele Bündchen.

 

Next and notably, he aims for Hugh Grant territory in the upcoming cosmic romance The Age of Adaline. Blake Lively co-stars in the story of a woman who has an accident in 1935 that causes her to stay 29 years old forever. She goes on the run, leaving generations of heartbroken men in her wake, until she meets Huisman’s character, a wealthy philanthropist who tempts her to stay put. Huisman more than holds his own with both Lively and Harrison Ford, who plays his father.

 

Huisman—who lives in New Orleans with his wife and young daughter—called from Australia, where he’s shooting a movie, one of five to come out in the next two years. I talked with him about those projects, what’s next for Thrones, the prospect of posing for Playgirl, and aiming to be Cary Grant.

 

MICHAEL MARTIN: What drew you to The Age of Adaline?

MICHIEL HUISMAN: When I read the script, I was a little bit swept away, captivated by the sense of this young woman traveling through time. Right away, I could kind of see how beautiful that would be: to see this person through all these different decades. On top of that, one of the things that I was looking forward to was that he is this perfect single guy, right? He’s in San Francisco. He’s made a fortune. He’s now just a philanthropist. He’s a little bit too good to be true. So I thought it would be fun to try to undercut that.

 

MARTIN: He’s very persistent and seductive. What would you say is the key to on-screen seduction?

HUISMAN: [laughs] Um, I wouldn’t know. I guess look at the girl and breathe. It’s made very easy by such an amazing actress as Blake. So maybe that’s the secret to on-screen seduction: Blake Lively, in this case.
