Daniel Gillies is a famous person in cinema, viewers know this handsome man very well from his work in TV shows and movies. His ascent looks more like a fictional story than a creative path. He had no connections, no one noticed him, he himself made his way to the top of fame with his own labor.
Daniel was born in a provincial town, his family had nothing to do with bohemia, mom and dad found themselves in the profession of a doctor. Naturally, the boy's future was predetermined, but he decided as a child that he would become an actor. At a young age, all attempts to captivate his son with medicine were in vain and his parents lagged behind Daniel.
He had been trying to show himself for a long time, traveling from one casting to another, it was there that the future actor finally realized what was really interesting to him. For the first time, albeit small, but he managed to catch the tail at the beginning of 2000, then he was entrusted with a small episodic role, he was in the frame for just a couple of minutes - there was no limit to the happiness of the novice artist, and then there was silence. Realizing that he needs to continue to fight, Daniel Gillis decides to move and moves to Sydney, then to Canada. In order to exist, he did not refuse any work, part of the money was necessarily sent to the piggy bank, the main goal was to raise funds and go to the cradle of cinema in Los Angeles. They had to wait a long time, but the future star nevertheless burst into this eternally boiling city.
And again endless auditions, again small cameo roles. But Daniel did not give up, from morning till night he auditioned and tried to attract attention. Money was sorely lacking, there were periods when he had to steal food. Such sacrifices could not fail to return, in 2004 he was noticed and invited to the famous cult picture "Spider-Man", the actor was not given the main role, but the brilliantly performed secondary was remembered by many. This year was generally significant for him, in addition to this role, Gillis receives an offer from the director of the film "The Devil Returns".
Creativity in cinema
And then he was invited to an interesting Indian project, a little later in 2007 he got one of the main roles in the unusual picture "Abduction". The actor gave it 100%, but unfortunately, she did not deserve high marks from critics. The cult film "The Vampire Diaries" brings him great popularity.
As for the personal life of a popular movie artist, there were rumors about her for a long time. Unkind tongues said Daniel was gay. But he dispelled them himself, showing the public his charming wife and beloved child. The actor's choice in 2004 was actress Rachel Leigh Cook, not so long ago she gave her husband an heir. Now the actor is at the peak of his popularity, there is no end to offers to act in films.
