Daniel Logan, a New Zealand native, started acting when he was 10 years old. He got his break when local children’s rugby teams were being scouted for a TV commercial. After auditioning with hundreds of other young rugby players, Daniel got the part, his first acting roll. “I played a little boy who gets knocked into the mud by [Auckland rugby star] Michael Jones,” Logan recalls.
Daniel was proclaimed a natural by the director of the commercial. “I’ve always been a show-off,” he admits. Daniel was noticed by other casting agents and that break led to more commercials and TV appearances, including a recurring roll in episodes of the New Zealand medical series “Shortland Street“, guest appearance in the international hit Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Daniel also starred in the short film, “Falling Sparrows” and provided the lead & supporting voices in 2 animated series’ “Tamota” and “Takapu.” Daniel’s most recent project was starring in “The Legend of Johnny Lingo.”
At the top of this young actors growing resume sits “STAR WARS: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” with the coveted role of Boba Fett, winning the part, out of thousand who tried out, after just one audition! As Darth Vader himself would say, “Impressive, most impressive.” “It’s quite strange to me… because you wouldn’t think a film company in a big country like America would want to come to a small place like New Zealand to audition for people,” Daniel said, “…but I am glad they did!”
Daniel has also returned to the role of Boba Fett in the Star Wars the Clone Wars – animated series episode: Death Trap!
Daniel looks forward to seeing all his fans at both the Sydney and Perth shows and will be appearing each Saturday 10.30am to 5.30pm and each Sunday 11am to 5pm for autograph* and photo* sessions, with one general public access Q&A daily per expo.
