Pro-Model and Talent Management alum Jeff Daniels has had quite a bit of acting success in L.A. lately.
Daniels, 62-years-old and originally from Medina, OH, moved out to L.A. in September because of his success at this past summer's IMTA convention in New York City. At IMTA, Jeff received several awards and accepted an offer from a talent agency in L.A.
Since moving to L.A., Daniels has gone to eight auditions, received five call backs, and shot a national commercial. He also has landed three short film roles - two roles as a principal and one co-star role.
On top of auditioning, Daniels continues to take acting classes in L.A. to improve and perfect his skills. Daniels credits much of his success to Pro-Model and Talent for providing him with the skills and opportunities that he needed in order to reach his dream.
“A lot has happened in my first seven weeks here and the professional training and guidance I received from everyone involved with Pro-Model and Talent has made all the difference,” Daniels said. “Because of PMTM, I am more than ready!”
Daniels and his wife have lived in Medina, OH for the past 23 years. Daniels is a semi-retired investment broker, and as he was beginning to retire, he decided that he wanted to begin to focus on two things - acting and writing on a professional level.
In April of 2014, Daniels decided to join PMTM in order to begin the next chapter in his life, improve his acting skills, and focus on what he really wanted to do.
Daniels is also a self-published author. In September of 2015, Daniels had his book, “My Brother the Boxer: The Terry Daniels Story”, published on Amazon. The book is a true story about his brother, Terry Daniels, who in 1972, competed for the title of Heavyweight Champion against Joe Fraizer, who was the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world at the time.
Since publication, his book has received many positive reviews and feedback. To check out the book on Amazon, click here.
Daniels just recently entered the screenplay for his book in a contest for L.A. writers. The winners will be announced at the beginning of December and the top 25 screenplays will have their scripts referred to 20 different major studios.
Daniels has had a successful first few months as a working actor in L.A. and continues to aim for his goals everyday. Pro-Model and Talent Management is proud to have had him as a talent and is looking forward to see what the future has in store for him!
