Danielle Petty was born in Bellevue Washington. Her grandmother introduced her to the world of acting in her tavern, singing and dancing with her sister and cousins. When Ron Howard and Mickey Rourke came to shoot a movie on her grandparents house in Issaquah, Washington, she was given her first film role. This experience brought the light to what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. Danielle came to Los Angeles and was having a hard time even getting an audition. As time passed her by, she decided that the Indy movie market might be the way to help open doors.
