Portait by Stuart Pearson Wright at exhibition

Dan posed for Stuart Pearson Wright and the portrait is featured in an exhibition called Most People Are Other People, Portraits of Actors from Britain and Ireland which makes Daniel the youngest non-royal to have his own individual portrait displayed at the National Portrait Gallery. Daniel revealed to the BBC that he had four sittings for the artist.

Daniel:
"I've never sat for a poirtrait and found the whole experience fascinating. And I love the finished result."

I love it. Until recently, I'd seen a peek of it in the catalogue, but not actually seen the real thing. "It was strange seeing myself as I was two years ago, not as I am now.

"If you look at each individual part of my face they look exactly like part of my face. Together it's surreal."

"It's a great honour to be in there among such amazing actors and actresses."
