From his early roles to his naughty proposition, here are 11 things you probably don't know about "Game of Thrones" star Michiel Huisman.
Michiel Huisman was born July 18, 1981 in Amstelveen, Netherlands.
The actor made his small-screen debut in the Dutch TV series "Voor hete vuren" in 1995 and worked steadily in Dutch TV and film.
In addition to acting, music is a passion for Huisman. His band Fontane provided music for the "Costa!" soundtrack and for "Full Moon Party" (2002) -- two films in which Huisman starred.
Huisman was the lead singer of Fontane and also plays guitar. After a few years together, Fontane broke up, but Huisman returned with a solo career and a debut album "Luchtige Verhalen" in 2005.
Huisman began getting attention in the U.S. with his regular role on "Treme" (2010 - 2013).
But he didn't explode stateside until he was cast as Daario Naharis on "Game of Thrones."
Huisman stepped in for Ed Skrein, who played Naharis before departing for "The Transporter Refueled" (2015).
His role on the hit HBO show has garnered so much attention that he was recently asked to pose for Playgirl! In response, Huisman said he was "very flattered" by the offer but there was no way he was going to do the spread.
As for his personal life, Huisman has been married to Dutch actress Tara Elders since 2008.
The couple met on the set of "Phileine Says Sorry" and has a daughter together, Hazel Judith Huisman.
This April (2015), he stars opposite Blake Lively in "The Age of Adaline."
