The Grey’s Anatomy and Manifest actor is of German, Irish, & African American descent. And in an interview he did for The New York Times, he mentioned it had helped him with his career. Hollywood has a history of racial prejudice and stereotyping.

And this made roles for mixed-race celebrities sparse. Daniel wasn’t the typical Caucasian man, so roles were hard to come by. However, his mixed race also benefitted him as he introduced a new definition of what a leading man should be.

Daniel also grew up in a mostly-white neighborhood, so he went through an identity crisis as a youth. Furthermore, his birth parents were a teenage runaway and an African-American man.
