Daniel DiMaggio secured a notable spot for himself in the entertainment industry after he portrayed the fictional character Oliver Otto on the widely acclaimed American show, American Housewife. His character is a ballet dancer who decided to pursue ballet because he believes it would help him secure admission at Harvard. The only son of Greg and Katie, Otto comes from a middle-class family but loves identifying with people from the rich background.
Since Dimaggo started making appearances in American Housewives, his life and career have obviously changed for good. His resume has continued to grow with big projects, having being picked over thousands during auditions. Let’s get to meet the fast-rising Hollywood star.
Daniel DiMaggio – Bio, Age
The young screen star hails from Los Angeles, California, in the United States of America. His parents gave birth to him on the 30th of July 2004. He has two siblings, a sister – Jaclyn Damiggio and a brother – Michael Dimaggio who are doing well in their respective careers.
As for his education, Daniel attended Los Feliz Charter School For the Arts in Los Angeles, California. He started out as a baseball and basketball player before he adopted ballet to fit into his character in American Housewife. As a young boy, he took part in the Los Angeles Marathon and ran 26.2 miles.
Dimaggio’s first paid acting job was a Christmas commercial he did for Honda Accord, wherein he was featured as Pete. He was seen writing a letter to Honda and expressing his gratitude to them for getting his dad a new deal on his Honda Accord. Following his first impressive showbiz gig, the young star began scoring small roles in other television shows.
Although American Housewife is Daniel’s highest-profile role on the screen, he has also played roles in other projects such as Burn Notice (as a guest actor), Daddy’s Home 2 (2017), Vampirina, and Supergirl wherein he was starred as young Kal-El alongside Melissa Benoist, Jeremy Jordan, Chris Wood, and Katie McGrath.
Daniel DiMaggio inherited his acting bug from his parents. While growing up, he had no plan or interest in becoming an actor even though he snagged his first commercial gig at the age of eight. The youngster only developed an interest in the art after his manager, who is also a family friend, encouraged him to pursue acting.
The actor is the last child of entertainment heavyweights – Loretta Fox and Lou DiMaggio. Fox is an accomplished actress famed for starring in Janeane from Des Moines (2012), Blades of Glory (2007) and Going the Distance (2010). A native of Dayton, Ohio, Loretta graduated from Chaminade-Julienne High School, Dayton, Ohio in 1981 and later the University of Dayton, Ohio, in 1984.
The actor’s father, Lou DiMaggio, is a writer, an actor and stand-up comedian as well. He rose to prominence for his recurring role on the universally acclaimed comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Lou has also written for several popular game shows, including for Win Ben Stein’s Money which earned him an Emmy nomination. Daniel’s paternal grandfather was a U.S Army major. He gave birth to Lou during the time he was serving his fatherland in Germany, precisely in Heidelberg. Lou was, however, raised in New York.
Daniel DiMaggio is very much available on the market. He is too young to start his own family and he has many years ahead of him to learn the pros and cons of marriage. For now, he is focused on his fast-growing career and studies, as he has a lot to offer to his generation.
It is not clear if the youngster is in a relationship within or outside the entertainment world. Ever since he found fame, he has stayed away from relationship scandals that are common to celebrities in the industry.
In most professional sports, height is correlated to success to a very large extent. When it comes to acting and other related careers, on the other hand, this fact does not count in entertainment in most cases. While it is true that some actors easily land specific roles as a result of their stature, most times the needed factor for success in a particular project is mainly talent and not height.
Presently, the American Housewives star stands at a height of 5 feet 4 inches. Considering his young age, he has many years ahead of him to grow taller than he is now.
