Discovery Channel’s, ‘Harley and the Davidsons’: Meet the Cast

Michiel Huisman as Walter Davidson

Walter was Harley-Davidson's intense and focused president. The Harley-Davidson company is one of only two American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. In 1901, William Harley drew up the first plans for a small motorcycle engine. With the help of his childhood friend, Arthur, and Arthur's brother, Walter, the two were able to found the American motorcycle company. Walter was born into a blue-collar family in 1876. According to Discovery's page, he was the "practical force behind Arthur and Bill's fledgling company." Michiel Huisman, who plays Davidson, is best known for playing Daario, leader of the band of mercenaries, on Game of Thrones. (Getty)
