L’Uomo VogueAfter the success in the hit series Game of Thrones new commitments are waiting for him on the big screen


For fans of the cult series Game of Thrones is the legendary mercenary warrior Daario Naharis, known for brutality and dexterity with the sword as well as a lover of beautiful Daenerys Targaryen – aka Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons. For all, Michiel Huisman is one of the new emerging actors from the anime scene, and international film, earned a reputation thanks to the talent and dedication, also demonstrated by the appreciation of his costars , as Brad Pitt ( World War Z ) Reese Witherspoon ( “Wild” ), Harrison Ford and Blake Lively (Age of Adaline) Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere (in the TV series Nashville ). After a successful career in the Netherlands, with the cult movie Phileine zegt sorry and Black book by Paul Verhoeven, he decides to groped their luck in the United States. “We moved here five years ago. In Holland I worked a lot but I was afraid that I would end up always interpret the same roles. I wanted to grow as an actor, I pray that presented challenges in films. I knew that if I had not left it would have been difficult to change their lives. I mentioned it to my wife Tara (Dutch actress, ed), and we decided to risk it. We were given two years time. New York initially it seemed like the obvious choice, but when we were ready to move I was offered a part in “Treme”, “HBO television series created by David Simon and Eric Overmyer – writers and ingenious producers of dozens of shows including” Homicide – Life on the street ” and the wire – set in New Orleans post-Katrina. “I auditioned, and when HBO decided to enter the series in the schedule offered me a role. Although he has never had a great success with the public, it is a very popular series and appreciated by those who are “behind the scenes.” For me it was a fundamental experience, has helped me to build my image right into the television. ”


So much so that by return has arrived, again from HBO, the call for “the” role it Game of Thrones , whose sixth season is expected worldwide in April. “I can guarantee that this year there will be surprises incredible,” says Michiel, while not revealing anything about the fate of Jon Snow (fans know well what I’m talking about …). “Daario is a character physically challenging to interpret, is very strong, athletic, smart, and wear it with dignity despite their leather armor passes still a long time naked with Khaleesi. Only for those scenes I had to work extra: 5 days a week in the gym, two hours a day. And then follow a diet and forget for a while ‘the delights of Louisiana: no little’ boy, the classic sandwich Creole with meat or fried fish, no jambalaya (a kind of paella, ed), no cream puffs with cream. Only healthy food, salads, meat, fish and white quinoa. New Orleans is home for me, wonderful place to listen to music and live a normal life, away from the spotlight.


Who knows, as a good Dutch, maybe I have a special affinity for the places below sea level. ”


Huisman was born in Amstelveen, south of Amsterdam. “As a child, like many of my classmates, I dreamed of becoming a football player. I started to advertise when I was 8, and I liked acting because all I paid attention, I jumped school, and I had fun. At 10 years I played in my first short and up to 15 on TV. At 17, I made ​​a film, Uitgesloten , in which I played a Jehovah’s Witness: then I decided that I would be an actor for the rest of my life.” Among the cinematic experience to remember, the six weeks spent on the set alongside Brad Pitt: “Brad is one of the most respected actors in Hollywood because it makes the creative and social generosity their own model of life. For me this is very important; as an actor I need to give the best of myself and to have a creative response “. In 2016, two upcoming movies: ” 2:22 directed by Paul Currie, director-producer in Australia, and Mountains and stones with Hera Hilmar and Josh Hartnett, directed by Joseph Ruben, a director who I admire very much.”


Although he has been chosen by Baz Luhrmann as the new Chanel male icon (along with Gisele Bündchen), Michiel does not pay too much attention to the look. “It was not long before the mirror. I like to dress well, but I prefer the convenience. When I have doubts, I ask my wife, and if I do not have twenty worldly prefer to wear simple and practical clothing. In the rare free moments to work commitments back in the Netherlands, where we have an old farm outside Amsterdam that is always in need of maintenance, so I often wear work clothes, boots and sweaters with holes or indirectly feltriti. I like manual labor, I relax by the handyman. ”


Öl- three at a passion for music (it is also a singer / guitarist of the Dutch band Fontane, ed), Michiel loves motorcycles, and especially the Vespa. “As a child, my parents always took me on holiday in Italy and then I fell in love with Vespa. I bought the first when I was 16, a 50cc Special, 1978. Then I had a 150 Sprint Veloce of 1971 that came from Ravenna. Now I have a low Lighthouse ’54, the same model of Roman Holiday , completely restored, no paint, just pure metal with a hand of protection against rust. I love it”.
