Dan: (on his music ambitions) I'm definitely planning to get into music in some way, but I'm loving my job at the moment. Certainly down the track there will be music!
Dan: (The funniest scene he's filmed on "Neighbours") I've noticed there's a pattern with my character wearing ridiculous outfits, and there's one coming up that topped them all… It hasn't aired yet but you'll know it when you see it. The kissing scenes can also be hilarious. In one, I ended up kissing Dichen's nose instead of her mouth!
Dan: (on Natalie Bassingthwaight and Dichen Lachman leaving "Neighbours") We really miss Nat. She was the life of the party on set, but we all knew she had big things ahead. Dichen leaving was pretty sad as well. We became good friends, but she has a big future ahead, too.
Dan: (on who was the first to befriend him on the "Neighbours" set) From memory I think it was Blair McDonough and Ryan Molony. Ryan mistakenly thought he'd met me before, but it turned out he'd seen me on Australian Idol.
