Danny Flaherty is an American actor, known for his role as Stanley Lucerne on the MTV television teen drama Skins. By the age of 17, Flaherty was already a veteran of the indie-arty short film scene, having acted in Spark, Vacant, The Parade, and Portnoy. He also makes music; Daniel writes songs, sings, and plays guitar in a local New Jersey band. Other hobbies include skateboarding and ultimate frisbee. His resume lists "fearless roller coaster rider" as one of his skills.
Daniel originally went to the New York open call but didn’t get a callback. His agent arranged a private audition and it seems like the individual attention was just what he needed to snag the role of Stanley. Daniel's favorite part of working on Skins is getting to contribute to the development of his character. Daniel started studying acting at age 11. When he turned 13, he booked his first short film, My First Kiss. In 2010, Flaherty was cast as Stanley Lucerne in the MTV adaptation of the British teen drama Skins. His character is based on the character Sid Jenkins from the original Skins UK show. Flaherty is from Glen Rock, New Jersey. He spends his free time skateboarding, playing guitar and singing in his band, MF Killer Starfish.
He's been in many independent and college short films over the years, as well as commercials and voiceovers. His brother Chris Flaherty is part of the band, Idlehurst.
