British actor Theo Graham rose to prominence as Hunter McQueen in the E4 soap opera Hollyoaks, for which he received both an award and a nomination at the British Soap Awards.

He has had an interest in movies and TV shows since he was a child. Even in primary school, he would attend every practical event, such as a travel workshop. He would also prefer drama class over theory classes. However, at the time, he did not take acting seriously.

Later, when Graham participated in the Royal Shakespeare School Festival as Romeo, he realized that he was more passionate about acting. His mother also saw him perform for the first time and encouraged him to pursue drama in college.

At the end of high school,  he began to dabble in acting by attending a few open days oncologist and learning about the course. He figured out what he could do outside the college to improve his acting skills. That’s when he discovered DNA.

Additionally, he met Tyrant for the first time and began attending Saturday classes. In an interview with The Acting Brunch, he stated that Darren Gordon is someone he looks up to and that he would not be where he is today without him or the support of DNA. 

Theo Graham began his acting career at a young age 

Graham has created a tremendous on-screen persona over the years at such a young age when kids do not even know what to become. He made his television debut in 2014 with the show All at Sea.

He appeared as Wade Benton in a 2015 BBC One soap opera Doctors episode. In 2016, he returned to the show for a five-episode arc as Barney Turner. From 2016 to 2018, Graham played Hunter McQueen in the E4 soap opera Hollyoaks.

For his performance in Hollyoaks, he won a British Soap Award for Best On-Screen Partnership, which he shared with his co-star Malique Thompson-Dwyer. Additionally, he got nominated for Best Actor at the same award show.

Likewise, the actor appeared in the 2016 ITV miniseries Brief Encounters and the 2019 5Star series Clink in recurring and supporting roles, respectively. But even after becoming an actor, he took dancing lessons to improve his skills and participates in sports to stay fit.

As for his movies and TV shows since 2019, he has appeared in two series Flatmates and Fate: The Winx Saga, and one short film Beast of Burden. Fun fact: Graham is yet to make his big-screen debut.

Theo Graham’s role in ‘Fate: The Winx Saga’

Graham portrayed Dane in the Netflix series Fate: The Winx Saga. The show is a live-action reimagining of the popular Winx television cartoon, first popular in Europe before gaining popularity in the United States. 

The actor’s character, Dane, wants to do what he believes is right, even if it means doing what others think is wrong. He is so desperate to be liked by Riven that he agrees to Riven making fun of Dane’s friend Terra.

In the series, Dane sits down to assist Terra in making Zanbaq, but he leaves without doing anything after Riven mocks him for it via text. Dane assists Terra in carrying Saul Silva into the Alfea greenhouse after his headmaster becomes infected with a Burned One.

That said, Graham’s performance as Dane has been outstanding and his followers have praised him for it. However, Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 will be the last time fans would see Dane and other fairies as Netflix canceled the show.
