In Game of Thrones Season 4, Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) bared all and showed off an incredibly ripped physique. Curious as to how Michiel was able to get the look of a deadly warrior? Yeah, we thought so.


In a recent interview with Glamour, Michiel was asked if he had to work out to prepare for his role as Daario.

“I had to bulk up!” Michiel reveals. “I worked out five days a week for an hour and a half.” Whatever it is he’s doing, we have to say it’s working! Michiel goes on to say, “There were certain things I’d do before a shirtless scene, but I can’t tell you about them—it’s embarrassing.” We wonder what “embarrassing things” Michiel is talking about. Did he have to show his costars old yearbook photos or something?

Michiel was also asked in the interview about what his wife thought of his nude scene, and the Dutch actor doesn’t mince words. “She said that I had a great ass. But she already knew that,” Michiel boasts.

We have to wonder if Michiel had to do any embarrassing things before pantsless scenes; we’re guessing those are just a tad more intense than his shirtless scenes!
