Daniel Goddard was born on August 28, 1071 in Sydney, Australia. He was about to finish college with a degree in finance when he decided to drop out and transfer to the Ensemble Actors Studio. He then appeared in a number of theater productions before landing his first television role as Eric Phillips in the soap opera Home and Away. After concluding the show, he moved to Hollywood to further pursue his acting career. It was during this time that he modeled for Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana. He later landed the lead role of Dar on the BeastMaster, which took him back to Australia to film. In 2007, he was cast for The Young and the Restless, where he was to play Cane Ashby.
Cane Ashby is played by Daniel Goddard on CBS' The Young and the Restless. Cane was Amber Moore's blind date whom she used to make Adrian Korbel jealous. While doing so, she was also investigating on Cane's real identity, as she believed that he might be the real son of Jill Abbott. Katherine Chancellor and Jill were acting strange whenever he was around, thus he called them the "looney toons." He was tricked by Amber into a fake marriage because she wanted to use him for the wealth he didn't know he had. It was later revealed that Cane was indeed Phillip Chancellor III, the son of Jill who was switched at birth by Katherine, his grandmother. Jill then gave him a position in the Chancellor Industries Construction, which he accepted. He also got used to being married to Amber, thus he kept it that way.
