(Huisman released a solo album in 2005.)Huisman combined his acting and musical talents on the show Treme, where he played Sonny, a drug addicted musician. Then came Huisman's big break into one of the hottest shows on cable, Game of Thrones, where he took over the role of Daario Naharis. Huisman was given a lot of leeway to approach the character and re-interpret Daario his own way.
