'Game of Thrones' Promotes Michiel Huisman to Series Regular


Michiel Huisman in Treme


2015 is coming...and it's never looked better. Though HBO has yet to announce a premiere date for the 'Game of Thrones' fourth season (the slackers), producers of the popular hit series have already begun securing key players for the show's fifth installment.

Like who, you may ask? TVLine reports that the oh-so-dreamy 'Nashville' and 'Treme' actor Michiel Huisman — who is scheduled to appear in a multiple episode Season 4 guest arc as Daenerys’ love interest Daario Naharis — has just inked a deal to return as a full-fledged series regular in a possible (and highly probable) Season 5. This guy sure knows how to work fast!

The role of Daario was first introduced to the series in Season 3 and was played by Ed Skrein. However, Huisman has since been brought on as a replacement due to reasons unknown (at least, as of now), and it already seems to be working out in his favor.

The actor seems to be in very high demand these days. Aside from the other roles I've mentioned, he's also set to join the cast of 'Orphan Black' in a recurring role during the show's second season. Let's just hope he's able to keep up with this jam-packed schedule...or King Joffrey may just have his head.

'Game of Thrones' will kick off its fourth season sometime this spring.

Lucky b**tard, getting to smooch the lovely Daenerys! How I envy him... :P After Carice van Houten he's the second Dutchie to get a regular spot on this fantastic show. Great to see my fellow countrymen doing so well in Hollywood! Can hardly wait for GoT to start again. Read all the books, but with all the changes they made these past two seasons the stories have diverged so much that it sometimes seems completely new, so I'm wondering what the new season will bring.
