Daniel appeared in Emmerdale from 2005-6 as Ivan Jones the dustman.
...and worked with Helena Bonham-Carter in the TV Mini-Series Merlin.
He's also worked with Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightly, Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman.
Daniel says he grew up watching all the soaps and he says he's having a blast working on the Street. On playing a gay member of the clergy, Daniel says: "I an honestly say that I've not had one negative letter or tweet. I'm very pleased that the viewers have really taken to his relationship."
This coming week on Corrie will see Billy face some awkward moments with Emily who is accustomed to working with a vicar who is older and more traditional. "I have had some brilliant scenes working with Eileen Derbyshire, who plays Emily," Daniel says. "She is an absolute dream and the sweetest lady."
"I would love to stay for a while," Daniel says. "Billy's got some great stuff coming up and I look forward to getting my scripts. It's like Christmas morning when I walk in and find a new script waiting for me."
