Who's the Actor in the Chanel Ad? Why Yes, That Is Someone From 'Game of Thrones'
If the handsome gentleman canoodling with, macking on, and batting his beautiful eyes at Gisele Bündchen in the Baz Luhrmann-directed Chanel No. 5 advertisement looks familiar, there’s a good reason for it: it’s Daario Naharis (of Season 4, not Season 3). Yup, that’s Michiel Huisman in the "You're the One That I Want" ad campaign for the iconic Chanel fragrance. In addition to Game of Thrones, the Dutch actor’s recent credits include Wild, Treme, Orphan Black, and Nashville.
Back in October, Huisman told Vogue that working with Luhrmann on the ad was “fantastic." He said the following about the experience:
He just wanted to have Gisele and me in the room and talk us through the story that he had in mind, take us by the hand and lead us in this little Chanel journey. I think he’s one of the great directors of our time and after working with him for a couple of days, I completely understand his passion. It was contagious and fun to be in an actor in front of his lens. Any time he reconsiders a role, I hope he knows where to find me!
You heard the man, Baz. Put him in your next feature. The movie-going audience won't be mad, I promise.
