Aside from having a lovely career, not many fans know that the pretty-faced actor has musical ties. Huisman was a key member of the disjointed music group Fontane.  

The band sang and composed popular songs that were also featured as the soundtrack for various films. Fontane, which he formed with his old friends, enjoyed a successful spell before drawing the curtain on their collaboration.

Huisman's charming look earned him a place as Instyle's "April Man of Style" in 2015. Since then, fans have grown curious about the actor's personal life, with some wondering if Huisman has walked down the aisle.

Huisman loves to flaunt his romance with Elders on his Instagram. The actor gives fans a glimpse of how devoted he is as a husband and doting as a dad. The "Game of Thrones" star shares a daughter, Hazel, born in 2007, with Elders.

Judging from his Instagram posts, Huisman is a proud dad. The Dutch movie star shared an exciting post to celebrate Hazel's birthday. He wrote,

"Hazel turned 11 today... we can't believe it!!"

Fans who love to see Huisman will be disappointed when his character, Alex Sokolov, fails to pop up when the show returns later this month. Showrunners say it is unlikely Huisman will reprise his role since his character is dead.
