Dan attended Theatregoers' Choice Awards

Daniel attended Whatsonstage.com's Theatregoers' Choice Awards at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue last night (just two theatres down from the Gielgud). 

- Equus won the Best Play Revival.
- Daniel won the Dewynters London Newcomer of the Year.
- Those amazing publicity photographs won the AKA Theatre Event of the Year
 "I'm truly delighted and thank everyone so much for voting for me. Equus is a tremendous and thought-provoking play and I'm so proud and honoured to have been a part of this incredible production."
According to The Mirror, Dan's publicist had this to say about the now famous/infamous kiss incident:
"It was a spontaneous gesture by James which was very funny. Daniel took it in the light-hearted spirit that was intended."

"I'm truly delighted to have won this prestigious award and thank you so much to everyone at Whatsonstage.com for voting for me. Equus is a tremendous and thought-provoking play and I'm so proud and honoured to have been a part of this incredible production. Thank you to Peter Shaffer, Thea Sharrock, Richard Griffiths, David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers and Barbara Houseman for having faith in me - playing the role of Alan Strang will remain one of the greatest experiences of my life.”
