Daniel Jon Arrias was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He was a stand out athlete in high school, playing football, running track and pole vaulting. He set records only to beat them himself each year. Daniel began Taekwondo training immediately upon high school graduation. It was a natural fit, given his discipline and athleticism. This new hobby became a passion that grew into a way of life for Daniel. He became a full time instructor, dedicating his life to the art of Taekwondo. While teaching, Daniel made the decision to become a fire fighter. Within two years, he received his degree in Fire Science and began his career as a Reserve Fire Fighter for the Culver City Fire Department. Simultaneously, Daniel was performing live action shows as a Power Ranger. His success in Taekwondo had steered him toward an exceptional way to showcase his talent. These high-energy, action packed, acrobatic shows had introduced Daniel to the world of stunts. After a year at the fire department, he made the decision to change his career and pursue life as a stuntman. After doing non-union gigs to hone his skills for two years, Daniel officially joined the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) in 2001. He now has upwards of 100 credits to his name, including work on some of the biggest blockbuster movies and television shows to date. In addition to working on so many mega hits, Daniel was a part of the SAG award winning stunt ensemble for Star Trek, as well as holding nominations for Iron Man and Transformers. Daniel has worked with many of the top billed actors in the business including Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, Kristen Stewart, and Jesse Eisenberg. He has had the opportunity to work with stars such as these, one on one, helping to train and develop their own unique physical character movement. Daniel prefers to train each actor in detail so that he or she can tackle as many of his or her own stunts as possible. Daniel has worked hand in hand with top stunt coordinators to develop skilled fight scenes, exciting car chases, dynamic high wire work, and other various stunt sequences in big budget films such as Tommorrowland, Star Trek, Oblivion, and Jack Reacher. Daniel continues his success as a professional stuntman, while simultaneously producing some killer fight choreography of his own. More recently, Daniel has had the pleasure of moving into the role of Stunt Coordinator. He continues to be highly respected in the industry as a loyal, hardworking and talented stunt performer. Daniel is gratuitous for his fruitful career as a stunt performer, and looks forward to more stunt coordinating opportunities in the near future. Show less «
