While working on “Lovesick”, Daniel also had other projects, such as a guest appearance in the detective series “Endeavour” which is a prequel to “Inspector Morse”. He also had a role in the comedy series “W1A”, which follows the character Ian Fletcher as he tries to manage his new job at BBC. He then appeared in the crime drama series “Vera”, followed byan other Netflix project entitled “The Crown”, a biographical story about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
In 2016, he had a supporting role in the biographical film “Eddie the Eagle” starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman, which follows British skier Michael Edwards, who became the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping since 1928, but with no chance of success; the film proved very successful both critically and commercially, and was nominated for an Empire Award for Best British Film the following year. One of his latest projects is in a main role in the television series “Instinct” which is based on the book “Murder Games’ by James Patterson and tells the story of a former CIA paramilitary officer lured back to his old life after a serial killer starts to use his book as an inspiration for murders.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Ings is married, though for some reason details about his marriage has not been shared publicly, as he prefers to keep that aspect of his life private, but he has apparently been in that relationship for over 13 years and they have two sons.
One of the reasons why there is very little information about his current and past endeavors is due to the lack of any strong online presence. He does not have any accounts with any of the major social media websites but there is more coverage of someone who shares a similar name, Danny Ings who plays professional soccer. So there is no information available about any of his endeavors, or his private life outside of the professional realm.
