Award-winning actor, director and singer-songwriter Daniel Taylor was born and lives in Liverpool. A graduate of the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, Daniel’s international career spans over 25 years, including roles in ‘Blood Brothers’, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘Lennon: Through a Glass Onion’ and ‘The Very Best of Tommy Cooper – Just Like That.’
Keen to share his skills with the next generation Daniel established Daniel Taylor Productions, working with actors, schools, youth theatres and special-needs organisations across the UK and around the world.
Daniel and his partner Shirley Ballas are proud champions of mental health. The pair played a key role in helping us raise £3 million for our brand-new Mental Health Hub, which includes Catkin Centre and Sunflower House.
At the 2022 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which featured our ‘Urban Foraging Station,’ Daniel and Shirley increased the profile of our 7in10 Mental Health Appeal and spoke passionately on the importance of children’s mental health.
