Game of Thrones hottie doesn't mind getting naked

Los Angeles - Michiel Huisman doesn't mind getting naked on TV.

The 33-year-old hunk, who stars as Daario Naharis on the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, has admitted he has no qualms with being seen as a sex symbol.

Reflecting on his on-screen relationship with Emilia Clarke - who plays Daenerys Targaryen - Michiel told the New York Post newspaper: "I ­always liked that because the roles were reversed.

"Here's a woman ... taking full control over her pleasure, y'know? Telling a man to take off his clothes, where it's often the other way around. I was happy to be a victim of that."

Michiel's remarks come shortly after Emilia claimed her career ruined her love life for years.

The 28-year-old actress - who's been linked to Australian actor Jai Courtney - shared: "I kept thinking that for clarity of mind, I had to be in one place. And then I just realised that's not how this life is going to work. It makes (romantic relationships) absolutely impossible.

"I'm soppy and I do like to believe that when the right person comes along, it will work, because you want to make it work. Everyone else seems to manage it."

And here are 5 (non-naked) but still hot pics we found on his Instagram account:
