Mini Bio (1)

Danny Dyer was born in the Custom House area of east London, England, on 24th July 1977. Danny was spotted at a Sunday Drama School for underprivileged kids, in Kentish Town, by the agent Charlotte Kelly who got him an audition for the part of Martin Fletcher in the Granada Television series Prime Suspect 3 (1993). At the age of 14 he was given the part and found himself working alongside Helen Mirren. Danny went through a quiet patch in terms of work coming in but after a few notable appearances in Thief Takers (1995) and Soldier Soldier (1991), the film, TV and theater work came flooding in making him one of the most sought-after London-based actors. As well as his film and TV work he has also appeared on stage in London and New York.

I'm receding a bit, but it only started after I dyed it. If the worst comes to the worst, I'll sue. It's down to Channel 4 I'm losing my hair.
