Daniel Benedict "Danny" Miller (born 2 January 1991) is a British actor. He is best-known for portraying the role of Aaron Livesy on the ITV soap opera Emmerdale.

Career[edit]

Still relatively new to television, Miller won his first major role in 2007, when he played Kyle Brown in the long-running BBC children's show Grange Hill. He followed this in 2008 with his most prominent role, being the second actor to portray Aaron Livesy on the ITV soap opera Emmerdale. Miller announced in 2011 that he is quitting Emmerdale and will depart on screen in spring 2012.[1] On 22 October 2011, alongside his family, Miller appeared on the ITV game show All Star Family Fortunes. In February 2012, Miller left Emmerdale. From 7 December 2012 to 6 January 2013, Miller starred as Prince Charming in the Pantomime Cinderella at the Grand Theatre in Blackpool.[2] In early 2013, Miller appeared in the ITV drama, Lightfields. In April 2014, Miller played William in the BBC production of Jamaica Inn.

Miller joined the cast of Scott & Bailey, in late 2013, as series regular Rob Waddington. [3]

In April 2014, Miller agreed to return to Emmerdale as Aaron Livesy, and will return later in the year. [4]
