Hailing from an Indian-Malaysian background, UK-born Daneev is an actor with experience in both stage and screen.
After gaining a law degree from the University of Leicester Daneev realised that a life behind a desk wasn’t for him; he gave up his job in the firm and decided to pursue his dream career as an actor. He began his training at the Manchester School of Acting, under the tutelage of Mark Hudson (acting coach at RADA, Central, LAMDA and Juilliard). After performing his self-written comedy ‘The Real Housewives of Wilmslow Road’ (which caught the eye of director Gurinder Chadha OBE) Daneev received numerous offers from theatrical agents eager to sign him. He went on to perform at the Birmingham Rep, Royal Northern College of Music and Oldham Coliseum Theatre amongst others. He has also appeared in viral internet videos amassing views in the millions.
In 2017 Daneev founded Improv Troupe ‘Mouthing Off!’ which gained critical acclaim for their quick thinking, daring shows with unplanned audience participation. Daneev has gone on to work in television as well as appearing as Zac in the short romantic comedy 10% Service Charge, for which he was the recipient of a Learning On Screen Award presented to him by Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE at the British Film Institute, London.
