Reviews and Media Coverage

“Taylor — a Liverpudlian, like Lennon — has the late Beatle’s look and mannerisms down pat, too. So much so that the hair stands up on the neck of many a patron who catches the show. The resemblance, physically and vocally, is that uncanny.”

Montreal Gazzette

“The incredible actor and musical theatre performer Daniel Taylor came to visit the JH Academy whilst on tour with “Blood Brothers”. His acting workshop was absolutely amazing. The students that were lucky enough to take part were mesmerised and inspired and it left them so fired up to want to further their skills. Daniel is a great friend of the Academy and we look forward to seeing him back soon.”

“I’ve been the head of drama at various schools and Daniel Taylor has always been my go-to practitioner whenever I want a workshop in Blood Brother’s advice on scripted work or monologues. He’s fun, he’s engaging and he’s knowledgeable.”

Matty Golledge
Head Of Drama, Rooks Heath College, Ruislip

“We had Danny do an online acting workshop with my year 10 Drama classes and they thoroughly enjoyed it! He was so professional and talked about how to create a character and then modelled this in a hot seating activity. I definitely recommend.”
