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.”

SLASHFILM – If you’re the kind of person who already hates parties and social gatherings, Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation is going to press your buttons in a very specific and unsettling way. This small-scale, slow-burning, intense gem is a special kind of cinematic nightmare – the one-location thriller where escape simply isn’t an option.


Drafthouse Films has released a new trailer for The Invitation and it’s a good one, playing up the film’s mystery and tension while side-stepping its various twists and turns.


The Invitation has a very simple set-up. Logan Marshall-Green‘s Will (wearing his best Tom Hardy costume) reluctantly attends a dinner party thrown by his ex-wife and her husband. Most of the people in attendance haven’t seen each other in a long time and everyone is having a great time… except Will, who suspects that something is wrong. Very wrong. Whether that very wrong something is Will himself or something else altogether forms the molten core of pure dread that powers every frame of the film.



This trailer arrives hot on the heels of the new poster, which you can check out right here.

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.
