Daniel Bass is an all-but-typical Hollywood soul. Daniel made his first big splash in Hollywood with his 2014 filmmaking debut co producing the dramatic Middle Eastern biopic Desert Dancer (Relativity Media), in which he also played the supporting role of Bijan. His next project, The Edge of Night, is currently in the works. The film, written by Craig Borten, Oscar nominated writer of Dallas Buyers Club, focuses on Johnny, an ambitious writer whose heroin addiction threatens to ruin a prolific Hollywood career. Film production is the driving force of Daniel’s life. In 2017, he noted, “The movie industry is my true passion because it is my way of projecting a certain life experience. A film can exude deep meaning and bring pleasure to an audience. A timeless film can become a legend. It can last forever.” All film legends begin somewhere. Born in North Hollywood, California, Daniel Bass started acting at age six, when his mother enrolled him in a community drama school. He thrived at an early age, taking a strong interest in both the performance and production aspects of the shows. It was at this time when he also grew keen on music, learning how to sing and play several instruments, both of which he would go on to master. Daniel’s family soon relocated to New York City, where he began to regularly take part in acting and musical theater projects at school, and continued until college.
