Finishing on Neighbours in 2001, Daniel moved to London to work on his theatre craft, where he played to packed houses in the West End tour performing BOTH Jesus and Judas (on alternate nights) in hit musical Godspell. The accolades critics and media attention led to his regular television role on The Bill playing PC Cameron Tait, viewed by over 10 million Brits twice weekly, and seen in Australia on the ABC, Daniel again made an immediate impact.
After finishing on The Bill Daniel starred opposite legendary actor Edward Woodward in the 14th Century play The Mysteries in London’s Canterbury Cathedral, receiving rave reviews.
After seven years away – four in Melbourne, Australia working on Neighbours and three in London Daniel arrived back home in Sydney Australia, November 2004.
