Born and raised in Los Angeles California, Danielle Bisutti’s decision to start a career in the
Entertainment Industry came genetically by the two halves that created her: her mother
Diana and father Richard. Diana Ferrare’s sister Christina Ferrare wanted to be an actress so
the northern Italian family called “The Ferrare’s”, who were living in Cleveland Ohio, decided
to pack up and move out to Hollywood. Only a decade or so before Richard’s Aunt, Helen
Greco, wanted to be a jazz singer and so the gigantic Southern Italian family known as “The
Greco’s”, living in Tacoma Washington, decided to pack up and moved out west to
Hollywood too. Long story short: her mom’s father, Tavio, was a butcher and her dad’s two
uncles, George & Tony, who owned the Carmel Market on Beverly Glen needed a new
butcher: 10 years later, enter Danielle Bisutti: 100% Italian with a passion for acting, music
and pasta with a nice glass of red wine, all in equal parts.
Musically, Danielle attributes her free spirit and irrepressible streak of wanderlust to the
sounds her parents exposed her to at an early age: Carole King; James Taylor; Simon &
Garfunkle; The Beatles; Joni Mitchell; Van Morrison; The Temptations; Marvin Gaye and
Aretha Franklin. And, growing up with a father who was a decorating-lead man in the
Entertainment Industry for 20 years, Danielle was no stranger to television and movie sets
from a very early age.
Danielle''s mother realized that her daughter had a gifted "musical ear," when at the tender age
of five, she was playing a Carole King melody on the piano. Danielle’s first composition was,
"Lost & Found," a song inspired from feeling completely lost in her fifth grade math class!
While attending a private Christian junior high school in Simi Valley, Danielle assembled her
best friends to form an all girl band called "The Boy Crazy''s". The idea of Christian girls
wearing "skirts that fell above the knee" was risky business, let alone writing songs about
boys. Public high school clearly offered more opportunities and at Royal High School, in Simi
Valley, she immersed herself in Theatre, Choir, Dance, Leadership, Speech & Debate,
Volleyball and Basketball. Danielle graduated with honors from California State University
at Fullerton with a BA in Acting and Musical Theatre. While attending CSUF she was
nominated several times for "best actress" in the Irene Ryan Competition and took runner up
at The Lincoln Center Theatre in NYC. Michael Butler (the original Broadway producer of
“Hair” 1968) fell in love with Danielle when he saw her performing the role of Sheila in a
California production of “Hair.” Butler took Danielle and the cast to Chicago to perform at
the Democratic National Convention, where they shared the stage with among others,
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Bonnie Rait and Jackson Browne. The "Hair" tribe had a
five-week run at the New Athenaeum Theatre in the heart of Chicago, where Danielle''s vocal
performance was compared "cool-alto styling of a young Rickie Lee Jones".
Some of Danielle’s other theatre credit’s include: Reno Sweeny in “Anything Goes”, Maggie
in “Boy’s Life”, Yelena in “Uncle Vanya”, Victoria/Jane in Noel Coward’s “Tonight at 8:30”,
Fastrada in “Pippin” and Ophelia in “Hamlet”.
Danielle’s feature film credit’s include her debut leading role in "Tropix", “Venice
Underground” (Eric Mabius), “The Neighbor” (Matthew Modine), a featured role in
Warner Brother’s upcoming comedy “Get Smart” (Steve Carell) and the leading female role
in Coram Deo Studio’s feature film debut, “No Greater Love”. She has recently snagged the
adult leading role in the Nickelodeon TV series “True Jackson, V.P.” AKA “Mad Fashion”,
where she plays the uptight yet lovable fashion diva, Amanda Cantwell. (Season premiere on
November 9th 2008)
