Although born in Augusta, Georgia, Danielle grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. Her parents are devoted Christians; her father is a deacon while her mother is a minister. She first came in touch with acting when she was six years old, appearing in a nativity play in her church. She went to South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities, which is a performing arts school. After matriculation, she enrolled at the Julliard School where she studied drama, graduating in 2011, and immediately embarking on an acting career.

Her debut came in 2012, in the role of Raimy in the made-for-television film “Modern Love”. She then got her breakthrough role of Tasha ‘Taystee’ Jefferson in the drama TV series “Orange Is the New Black”, which has since garnered six Golden Globe Award- nominations and Two Primetime Emmy Awards, with Danielle taking home a part SAG Award in the category Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. The role of Tasha certainly increased her net worth to a large degree, but also her popularity.

She stayed active looking for new roles despite her engagement in the series, and in 2014 she featured in the TV series “Girls”, and also appeared in the drama film “Time Out of Mind”, starring Richard Gere, Ben Vereen and Jena Malone. In 2016 she lent her voice to Olive Blue and Monica the Crossing Guard, characters from “The Angry Birds Movie”, and also had the lead role in the film “I Dream Too Much”. Most recently, she was cast in the role of Carla in the film “Sadie”, which will be released late in 2017.

Danielle also made her Broadway debut in “The Color Purple” (2015), for which she received a Tony Award nomination in the category Best Featured Actress in a Musical, which also helped add to her wealth.

Regarding her personal life, Danielle tends to keep her most intimate details away from public eyes, therefore, there is really no information about her off the stage.
