    We Found The Body Double For Daario Naharis And He Did Not Disappoint

    Tame your dragons.

    Meet Ignacio Jimenez Blanco. He is the body double for Michiel Huisman AKA Daario Naharis from HBO's Game of Thrones.

    He's a Spanish model/actor and all around babe. We wanted to get to know him better.

    So we got in touch with him to ask some very important questions about his work and, of course, his time on Game of Thrones.

    1. How did you become a stunt double for Daario?

    2. What kind of training do you have to do to prepare as a stunt double?

    3. Was it actually YOUR butt we saw in Season 4, Episode 7?

    4. Did you know about Game of Thrones (books or show) prior to being cast as a stunt double?

    5. What is a typical day on set like?

    6. Who is your favorite character on the show?

    7. Do you ever get mistaken for Daario (Michiel Huisman) IRL?

    “Without my wig, I normally go unnoticed," Ignacio admitted. “But surprisingly enough, around the set I often hear people say: 'Hey that’s Daario's double.' Now, I promise, I have no idea how they realize.”

    8. Do you hope that Daenerys and Daario stay together?

    Best part? He and Daenerys's body double are BFFs in real life.

    Sign us up for next season.
