He's young, good-looking and in just a few years has shown himself to be one of the best actors around.
Danny Dyer is the UK's hottest star. He began his career at just 14 at his local Sunday school when an agent spotted him.
Soon he was auditioning for a role he won in the hit TV series Prime Suspect.
It wasn't long before he moved into film with high profile movies The All Together, Severance, Straightheads and Outlaw. A passionate football player and lifelong fan, Danny has never been afraid of shirking away from the game's darker side.
He presented the hit documentary series exposing the hardest fans in football with The Real Football Factories and The Real Football Factories International.
Danny fearlessly travelled throughout the world in search of those supporters whose exploits are often more terrifying than the most brutal movie. But even with all his amazing success, Danny has never forgotten his roots.
He still lives in London's East End with his family and friends who ensure that he remains a grounded lad. And in 2007 he leapt at the chance of becoming the chairman of Kent League's Greenwich Borough football team in south-east London. Martin Howden's The Real Deal is an insightful, in-depth and honest account of one of Britain's most gifted and most uncompromising talents.
