Skateboarder Daniel Flaherty hails from Glen Rock, New Jersey. He started acting at the age of 11, but has recently branched out to musical pursuits. He plays the guitar and sings in his band, known as MF Killer Starfish. Still, he's been trying to continue his career in the entertainment industry. He's appeared in several independent and college short films since he started out at the age of 13, when he got his break in the short film My First Kiss. Now, he's booked a part in MTV's Skins, the American adaptation of the hit British teen drama. There he plays the character Stanley, an under-confident foil to the cocky Tony (James Newman), his best friend.
