The actress and social media star Dana Heath was born on 10th April 2006, in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, USA; she began acting professionally when just 10 years old.
Her first role, that of Ashlyn in the kid’s animated show “WellieWishers”, was followed by guest-starring spots in “Scorpion”, “PEN15”, and “Abby Hatcher, Fuzzly Catcher”. She also had her first major recurring role from 2018 to 2022, playing Bree James in “Fancy Nancy”.
Although most actors spent months out of work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dana’s career went from strength to strength, as she guest-starred in “Sydney to the Max” and was cast as Mika Macklin in “Danger Force”, and in 2021, the African-American actress rehashed her role as Mika in the spin-off “Danger Goes Digital”.
2022 was a relatively slow year for Dana, as she picked up no new projects. However, in 2023 she joined the cast of “Princess Power”, voicing Kira and Ariana. She also began portraying MC Harmony in “Kiya & the Kimoja Heroes”. Despite her varied repertoire, Dana’s best-known project is undeniably the “Danger Force” series.
In early 2023, Dana revealed that she had become vegan a year after moving to Los Angeles. ‘I was having severe stomach issues and I was sick all the time,’ she confessed in a one-minute YouTube campaign for The Humane League. However, after seeing a doctor, the actress failed to receive a concrete diagnosis and was told that she was in relatively good health.
Taking matters into her own hands, Dana became vegetarian, but still experienced stomach issues. The next step was cutting dairy out of her diet, and according to the Nickelodeon alum, the incremental changes helped enormously, benefiting both her physical and mental health. According to Dana, her view of the world has changed since becoming vegan, as she is now more sensitive to people and animals alike.
‘From my experience, once you’ve gone long enough without eating those things, your palate changes,’ Dana advised viewers. The change in Dana’s physique is clearly visible, as she boasts a slim figure and weighs just 48kgs (106lbs), which is a healthy size for her 5ft 3ins (156cms) frame.
Although Dana was previously linked to her “Danger Force” co-star Luca Luhan, there is no evidence of them ever being in a relationship. Nevertheless, fans of the show still hope to see them together one day.
A TikTok video entitled “dana heath and her boyfriend jack kiss” has been seen over 600,000 times, but at time of writing, the actress is believed to be single and focusing on her career. As such, we are unable to share any details regarding Jack.
Regarding Dana’s net worth, she is possibly worth close to $500,000 thanks to her Nickelodeon paychecks.
The comedy series “Danger Force” was developed by Christopher J. Nowak and premiered on Nickelodeon in March 2020. The “Henry Danger” spin-off features a talented ensemble including Luca Luhan, Terrence Little Gardenhigh, Havan Flores, and others. Cooper Barnes and Michael D. Cohen also transitioned to the series after “Henry Danger”, reprising their original characters.
Cooper plays Captain Man, the indestructible resident superhero of the fictional town of Swellview who is in charge of training the Danger Force. In one episode, his full name was revealed to be Raymond Esther Manchester.

Michael plays Schwoz, an eccentric inventor who often helps Captain Man and the Danger Force. Meanwhile, Havan, Terrence, Dana, and Luca play the different members of the Danger Force, each with unique abilities: for example, Havan’s character, Chapa, gained the ability of electrokinesis, whereas Terrence portrays Mika’s brother Miles, a skilled teleporter. Meanwhile, Mika and Luca are gifted in sonic screaming and telekinesis respectively.
The series was renewed for a third season in August 2022, with new episodes premiering in April 2023. However, Nickelodeon has yet to confirm if there will be a fourth season in 2024.
Michael D. Cohen is the best-known cast member and has been acting since 2002. The Canadian actor is believed to have been born in 1975 and was raised in Winnipeg; sometime in the 1990s, he began transitioning from female to male, but only revealed the news in 2019. As Michael maintains a low profile when it comes to his personal life, there is little to no information regarding his life prior to transitioning.
In the 1980s, the Cohen family moved to Richmond, British Columbia. Michael, who won a Young Playwright’s Contest in his adolescent years, was inspired to become an actor and writer by Carol Burnett and other stars of “The Carol Burnett Show”.
After graduating from college, Michael moved to Toronto and studied acting. Shortly afterwards, he began doing voiceover acting for “Pippi Longstocking”, despite not having an agent. He then did commercial work and had roles in “Queer as Folk”, “Henry’s World”, and “Moville Mysteries”. In 2005, he won a national award for his short film “Jew Jube Lives”.
Michael has been playing Schwoz Schwartz since 2014, but has also found time to appear in “Modern Family”, “2 Broke Girls”, and “Austin & Ally”, to name a few. He was recently nominated for an ACTRA Award in the Outstanding Lead Performance category for his portrayal of Abner in “It Was You Charlie”.
The actor, who currently lives in Los Angeles, also offers private coaching and acting workshops for fellow thespians around the world. He was previously co-chair of the SAG-AFTRA Hollywood Conservatory and is a member of the National SAG-AFTRA Conservatory Committee.
Meanwhile, his on-screen sidekick Cooper Barnes was born in Sheffield, England, in April 1979 bur grew up in Michigan, USA. After completing his high school and college studies, he moved to Los Angeles to focus on his acting career, and began participating in musicals and indie films from 2003 onwards.
In October 2015, Cooper married fellow actress Liz Stewart after a three-year relationship. They currently reside in Los Angeles with their young daughter Ripley. Tennis and football are two of Cooper’s main hobbies; however, as he rarely gives interviews, little is known of his day-to-day life.
