Daniel Bostic, a model an actor best known for his leading role in the Lamplight Productions film, From Darkness Into Light, in addition to his burgeoning model career, is no stranger to hard work. His first taste as a working actor came when he was suddenly hired as a last minute extra on the popular Lifetime series, Army Wives. He played alongside the Emmy Award Winning actress, Catherine Bell, and learned much about what it is really like living as a professional, working actor. Daniel had this to say about his experience:
“I showed up and was on set for 16 hours … I was completely exhausted at the end of the day but loved the experience of the cast working together on set, plus I got to meet some amazing people! Observing professional actors in their environment really inspired me and that’s when I knew this was something I wanted to do.”
This exhausting but rewarding experience was what turned Daniel’s tables: from then on, he pursued a career as a working actor. Since his time as a last minute extra on Army Wives, Daniel has appeared in several different productions, including: A background extra in David Anspaugh’s Little Red Wagon; a supporting role in LampLight Pro’s From Darkness Into Light; a lead role in Kenneth Knowles’ True Love; a leading role in Junto Ink Films’ Gone For the Day; another lead role in Backwards Man Productions’ Crash, and a supporting role in Every New Day Pictures’ Secrets in the Fall. He has also starred in at least two commercials, including the aforementioned book trailer and a leading role in a commercial against texting and driving.
In addition to Daniel’s acting work, he also has a rising career in the modeling world. His most recent work in the modeling industry was done for American Eagle’s “Live Your Life” Times Square Billboard Campaign, which was also used in American Eagle stores. In addition to his work with American Eagle, Daniel has worked for several private magazine shoots, including work for Hannah Lane Photography and Penny Hoey Photography.
Although Daniel is currently on a hiatus while he attends Appalachian Bible College, he will be starring in an upcoming book trailer for the Harper Collins young adult novel Mila 2.0. As he continues his schooling, he also hopes to continue the modeling and acting career that has truly marked him as a star on the rise.
