Biography

Daniel Andrew Sharman is an English actor from Hackney, London known for his roles as Isaac Lahey in the MTV supernatural drama series Teen Wolf and as Kol Mikaelson/Kaleb Westphall on The CW series The Originals.

Career

As a child actor on stage

Sharman started acting as a child at the age of nine. He auditioned for the Royal Shakespeare Company and was selected out of hundreds of other children. "I just adored it," he said of his venture into the dramatic arts. "Between Macbeth and Henry VI with all of the armour and the blood and everything, it was just fantastic as a kid. It was the best thing ever." Sharman stayed with the Royal Shakespeare Company for two plays: The Park in 1995 (age 9) and Macbeth in 1996 (age 10). He also acted in the touring play The Winslow Boy in 2002 at age 16.

Education

Sharman attended Mill Hill School and also the Arts Educational School, both in London. During his school years, he acted in the play "Kvetch" that made it to the famous Edinburgh Fringe festival.

For three years, from 2004 to 2007, Sharman studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in acting and graduating with honors.

From stage to the big screen

Sharman's first feature film role was in the independent film The Last Days of Edgar Harding, in which he played a musician. In 2010, he was cast as Ares, the Greek god of war, in the fantasy film Immortals with Mickey Rourke, Kellan Lutz and Henry Cavill among others; the film was released in 2011. "I found acting on film really difficult," he admits of his first screen performances. "I found it really kind of odd and unnatural. Then I became obsessed with trying to get it right. I'm hugely competitive." Sharman appeared in the horror film The Collection with his fellow Teen Wolf cast member Eaddy Mays, released in November 2012.

Television roles

Charlie Carver, Max Carver and Daniel Sharman, 2013.

Sharman's television credits include a recurring role in two episodes of The Nine Lives of Chloe King as Zane (in which he appeared alongside fellow Teen Wolf cast member Colton Haynes), and roles in Inspector Lewis, Robin Pilcher's television film Starting Over and one episode of Judge John Deed. He also starred in Funny or Die's The Sexy Dark Ages with Shawn Pyfrom and Robert Englund.

Daniel Sharman had a recurring role as Beta werewolf Isaac Lahey in season 2 of MTV's supernatural drama series, Teen Wolf. He reprised his role in the third season of the show and became a major recurring character. After the Season 3 finale of Teen Wolf, it was announced that Sharman would be leaving the series to explore other opportunities.

Daniel also played the role of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer, Edward Montclair in the Hallmark Channel TV film When Calls the Heart, based on Janette Oke's romance novel of the same name.

He has also played a role in The Originals as the recurring character Kaleb Westphall, a New Orleans witch possessed by the recently resurrected Original vampire Kol Mikaelson, whose mother, Esther, had given him and his eldest brother Finn a second chance at a life free of vampirism.

Other work

Sharman lent his speaking voice to audiobook version of Cassandra Clare's young adult novel Clockwork Princess, the third and final installment of her The Infernal Devices trilogy in the larger The Shadowhunter Chronicles young adult supernatural/fantasy series.

In 2015 he joined the Williamstown Theatre Festival for the play Off the Main Road with Kyra Sedgwick, among others.

Upcoming projects

In March 2015, it was confirmed that Sharman had landed the lead role in the CBS medical drama pilot LFE. However, the pilot was ultimately not picked up by the network.

In April 2015, Daniel, through his Twitter and Instagram accounts, crowdfunded $20,000 on Kickstarter for the short film Soon You Will Be Gone, in which Sharman will star.
