Danny Mac captured the nation’s hearts and received overwhelming support during his incredible time on BBC1’s flagship entertainment show STRICTLY COME DANCING in 2016. The critics and bookies favourite, Danny broke Strictly records with his perfect Samba and made it all the way to the finish line with fellow contestants Ore Oduba and Louise Redknapp, in a thrilling final that saw Ore claim the trophy by a whisker.
Born in London, Danny moved to the South Coast and became involved in theatre at an early age, having played the important role of Gavroche in Cameron Mackintosh’s tour of LES MISERABLES in a ten week run in Southampton and reprising the role a year later in the West End. He went on to study acting at Chichester College before winning a place at the prestigious Arts Educational in Chiswick, London. Known for training some of the countries leading actors and West End stars, Danny left in 2009 with a BA Hons degree in Performing Arts.
After some time working in the West End in the Olivier and Tony award-winning musical WICKED and on tour in another hit show LEGALLY BLONDE based on the cult movie, Danny was cast in one of Channel 4’s longest running dramas HOLLYOAKS, playing the role of Mark ‘Dodger’ Savage from 2011-2015. During his time in the series, Danny clocked up an impressive number of television awards including ‘Best Newcomer’ at the highly regarded National Television Awards, which is voted for by the British public.
Since leaving Strictly, Danny’s next project takes him back to the theatre in an exciting new new production in London over the Summer announced very soon.
