You might recognize Michiel Huisman's face without being able to place where you know it from... well, that won't be the case for long- Huisman is a rising star in Hollywood, and it's time you get familar with this Dutch actor!
Who is Michiel Huisman?
Michiel is a television and film actor from Amsterdam, Holland. He's been acting since 1995, but for a short period of time he also made music for Dutch films as part of the band Fontaine. Since then, the actor has built up quite an impressive resume!
Huisman first caught our eye when he played the role of Sonny, a wild street musician from Amsterdam, in David Simon's Treme. While finishing up Treme (which wrapped after four seasons), Michiel jumped from New Orleans to Nashville to star in... you guessed it... Nashville, with Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. He also appeared in World War Z with Brad Pitt.
If you still don't recognize Huisman from any of those shows, you might know him from the latest episode of Game of Thrones. He's replaced actor Ed Skrein in the role of Daario Naharis, Daenerys Targaryen's (Khaleesi) new love interest- a role we hear will be pretty important this season.
And there will definitely be more Michiel Huisman to come! The actor has joined the cast of Orphan Black (with Tatiana Maslany) to play a recurring role in Season 2, which will air on April 19. He's already finished filming Wild with Reese Witherspoon, and is currently in Vancouver filming Age of Adaline with L'Oreal Paris spokesperson Blake Lively.
Impressed? We are too!
