Daniel Newman was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in a small rural farm town outside the city. He briefly studied at Yale University before moving to Brooklyn, NY. In New York Daniel was a struggling musician for awhile, traveling and gigging with his band around the city and around the east coast, before being scouted by Legendary Photographer Bruce Weber. This chance encounter would launch a modeling career and eventually an acting career. Daniel has since appeared in shows like Heroes, Surface and a reoccurring role on The Walking Dead!
