From Actor to Host, Rugby Player to Bull Rider; from Military Soldier to Senior Management Consultant and High Tech Sales Executive; from Trained Dancer to Race Horse Owner and Developer, Daniel Fathers is Canada’s quintessential ‘Renaissance Man’.
Born in London, England to theatre parents, he received a scholarship to train and become a national athlete in both Rugby and Track.
Moving to Saskatchewan as a teenager and later to Toronto, Ontario and then Los Angeles, Daniel spent twelve years in the corporate world, before deciding entertainment was really where he belonged. Since making that life-changing decision, doors have opened for him in the entertainment industry.
He has starred in major Hollywood films: Disney’s ‘Camp Rock’ and ‘Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam’, as Uncle Brown, alongside the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato. CR 2 won the Production and 2010 People’s Choice Award. Viewed internationally by approximately 200 million viewers, he is recognized by teens and tweens everywhere. Daniel also played a lead role in the Tony Award winning, Broadway theatre production ‘Mamma Mia!’ in Toronto.
Although Los Angeles based, Daniel constantly splits his time between Los Angeles and Canada, depending on what project he’s working on.
He’s the proud father of daughter Ariana, a 3rd-year Communications major at Wilfred Laurier University, who joins him as a Production Assistant on ‘Canada’s Greatest Know It All’ and bosses him around on set. She takes her job VERY seriously!
