My D.O.B is October 18, 1990.
RADIO: I've done
three radio voice overs for Carex Soap, Disney's Dinosaur
and Disney's Little Vampire.
TV: Emma Bolton in
GRANGE HILL (BBC/Mersey TV 2003)
work has included Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat five times, Whistle Down the Wind, Peter Pan,
Wizard Of Oz (playing the part of Dorothy) and various
other productions. Also "Honk" at the Chester
Gateway in June 2004.
DANI ON EMMA: I enjoy
playing Emma, but I don't think I'm that much like Emma
in real life. I love the fact that throughout the series,
I've brought the character out from being someone that
everyone hates to, hopefully someone who is just misunderstood.
I certainly wouldn't have behaved the way that she
did over Annie in the first series. I have lots of friends
in and out of school unlike Emma who seemed to be desperate
for a true friend no matter what the cost. In Year 7,
if I could have changed one thing about Emma it would
have been her jealousy, although saying that it was
a fun part to play especially when the crew started
hissing me after some of my scenes!
ON FAME: Being involved
in Grange Hill has been an experience I will never forget.
By the end of filming my first series it felt as though we
were all like one big family and with myself being the youngest,
all the others used to look after me, they're like my big
brothers and sisters.
The most memorable day had to be my b'day. Everyone in the cast
and production team made it such a special day. I had presents
waiting for me in the Green Room and then they got me a HUGE
chocolate cake, I nearly cried when I saw it (what am I like)!!!!
Another time has to be when we went to Chester to film the school
trip. It was FAB! The three girls, Lauren (Annie), Kirsten (Tanya)
and I shared a room next door to Chris (Togger), Chris (Andy)
and Lucas (Abel). We had such a laugh!!
FAMILY: Mum and Dad have
been married for 16 years, Dad Brian is an actuary working
in Liverpool although he was previously a professional musician
and Mum's a classroom assistant working in my old primary
school. Josh my little bruv, is 13 years old and has joined
Stagecoach where I go and he loves it!! They have all supported
me 100% in everything I have done and will do and I can't
thank them enough, they're my three Best Friends!!
HOBBIES: My hobbies are
singing, mainly West End show songs, dancing, jazz/modern, playing
the saxophone and piano, reading and just hanging out with my
mates. I like all kind of music really, but my fave has to be
anything from the West End Musicals. I've always wanted to be
involved in drama, and I go to a stage school every Friday where
I have a brilliant time, doing what I love best.
I'm an EastEnders fan and have an unusual piece of Shane
Richie memorabilia - I met Shane when I watched him in Grease
and he gave me his Danny Zuko comb!
AND THE FUTURE? I would
love to carry on as I am because I am enjoying it soooo much.
I really enjoy TV work, everyday I learn more and more, not
just in front of the camera but behind it aswell! Later in life,
I would also love to star in a West End Show as Swallow in Whistle
Down The Wind or the Narrator in Joseph. But right now I'm very,
very happy in Grange Hill!! Bye for now!
