Daniel J. Perryman is an actor based in southern Alberta. Born in Birmingham, England, Daniel moved to Canada with his family when he was 14, and attended high school in Calgary, Alberta. This is where he discovered his love for theatre thanks to his incredible teacher and mentor, Robin McIntyre. Daniel decided to pursue a career in acting and moved to Lethbridge, Alberta to attend the University of Lethbridge. After graduating in 2019 with a B.F.A in Dramatic Arts, Daniel debuted in his first professional show with Theatre Outré’s production of A Streetcar: Named Desire by Tennessee Williams. Daniel has since been auditioning and responding to casting calls for film and live theatre and applying for grants. He even turned a room in his home into a studio for filming self-tapes and recording short films! Recently, Daniel has been branching out into producing and directing short films and his own visual podcast called Thy Bard: Shakesonnet which will premiere in Fall 2023 for free on TELUS OptikTM TV On-Demand and is made possible with the support of TELUS STORYHIVE Voices 2.0. Daniel is always excited for a new challenge and is grateful for each opportunity that comes along.
Which ’hood’ are you in?
I currently reside in Lethbridge with my incredible partner, Shelby. However, my folks are based in the southeast of Calgary and I feel very blessed to have their ongoing support and encouragement in all that I do, both in work and life too.
What do you do?
I’m a storyteller, plain and simple. This being said, storytelling takes many forms. I’ve only dabbled in a few of these forms so far, namely: acting, stage managing, writing, dancing, producing, directing, and editing… Learning, however, is the one thing I believe all forms of storytelling have in common. So, I’m a learner and a storyteller. A ‘learning storyteller’, if you will.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently producing a visual podcast called Thy Bard: Shakesonnet which will premiere in the Fall of 2023 for free on TELUS OptikTM TV On-Demand and is made possible with the support of TELUS STORYHIVE Voices 2.0.
Where can we find your work?
I am currently in the process of deciding how best to distill and disseminate my work. So, just keep your eyes peeled I guess!
