We recently sat down for a one-on-one chat with actor Michiel Huisman while he was in Toronto to promote his new film The Age of Adaline.
The Dutch actor, who is probably best known for his work on the small screen (in shows like Treme, Nashville, Game of Thrones, and Orphan Black), has made the move to the big screen in recent years with small roles in Hollywood films like World War Z and Wild. Now, Huisman is co-starring opposite Blake Lively and Harrison Ford in The Age of Adaline, the story of a woman from the 1930s (Lively) who is rendered ageless after an accident. She lives a solitary life for decades until she meets a man (Huisman) who might just be worth losing her immortality for.
We spoke with Huisman about working with Lively and Harrison Ford, the downside of starring on two hit shows, the perils of social media, and what’s on his dork shelf!
