On screen, she next features as Alice in Masters of the Air, produced by Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks for Apple TV+.

Danielle’s debut play, Children of the Night, has been longlisted for Paines Plough’s 2023 Women’s Prize for Playwriting. Danielle spent the pandemic writing the play, which celebrates the notorious clubland scene of her Doncaster hometown in the 90s. Children of the Night evolved into a large-scale community project and stage play which opened to sell-out audiences at CAST, Doncaster.

As a theatremaker Danielle has created theatre with organisations including the RSC, Royal Court, Traverse Festival, Camden People’s Theatre, Hull Truck & Theatre503. She was a member of social activist theatre company LUNG, with whom she developed E15 and The 56, winning Spotlight’s Most Promising Actor award in 2015.
