Emmerdale star Danny Miller is swapping the Dales for Blackpool Grand Theatre to star as Prince Charming in this year’s pantomime – Cinderella.
Stockport born Danny Miller has played Emmerdale’s troubled mechanic Aaron Livesy since 2008. His four years in the show have seen him play a key role in some of Emmerdale’s most controversial storylines.
Danny began his acting career with a long running role in Grange Hill, playing Kyle Brown. A year later he took over the part of troubled teenager, Aaron Livesy in Emmerdale – winning huge acclaim for his role in the hit soap.
With leading roles in several controversial storylines Danny fast became a soap favourite. In 2009 Danny won Best Soap Actor at the TV Quick and TV Choice Awards. He also won the 2010 and 2011 Best Actor Awards at the Inside Soap Awards along with the awards for Best Dramatic Performance and the TV Times Awards for Best Newcomer 2010 and Favourite Soap Star 2011. He has been nominated for the 2012 Inside Soap Award for Best Actor and the 2012 British Soap Awards for Sexiest Male and Best Actor.
Throughout his time in Emmerdale Danny starred alongside Pauline Quirke, who will be appearing at The Grand in Birds of a Feather from April 24 to 28.
Danny’s last scenes as Aaron Livesey will be screened in a special double episode of Emmerdale tonight.
Joining Danny in Cinderella will be Grand favourite Steve Royle, who returns to the theatre for his 10th consecutive year in panto due to overwhelming popular demand.
As well as being a veteran of Grand Theatre panto Steve is an actor, comedian, writer, juggler and a regular presenter on BBC Radio Lancashire – and was seen as part of the Comedy Carpet Festival last week as member of comedy group Slaughterhouse Live.
Cinderella runs from Friday December 7 to Sunday January 6.
