Danny was born in Canning Town, East London on 24th July 1977. He had a fairly typical East End upbringing, and would probably never have entered acting if he hadn’t been spotted at his local Sunday School, by an agent who auditioned him for the part of Martin Fletcher in the acclaimed Granada Television series Prime Suspect. At the age of 14 he was given the part and found himself working along side Helen Mirren.
Danny subsequently appeared in a variety of television prductions including Cadfael, A Touch of Frost and Loved Up. After a bit of a quiet spell he emerged in two notable preformances. Firstly as Alec in Central Television’s Thief Takers, and then twice as Gary Fox in Carlton’s award winning series Soldier Soldier.
TV, film and theatre work flooded in as Danny became one of the best and most recognised London actors in the country. Recently he has been seen in the Channel 4 drama Second Generation, directed by John Sen; Mel Smith’s film ‘High Heels And Low Lifes’ and his latest offering, the highly acclaimed ‘The Football Factory’, directed by Nick Love.
Danny is also a seasoned theatre actor, treading the boards in both London and New York in a number of high-profile productions, including Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land and Peter Gill’s Certain Young Men.
Here’s an outtake from his 2005 movie ‘The Business’.
