Daniel Curtis Lee
Daniel Curtis Lee is an accomplished actor, comedian, and director.

Daniel has been seen in Disney Channel productions like Zeke & Luther, as well as Nickelodeon’s Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.
 
Daniel left home for Los Angeles to pursue his dreams, but despite his amazing accomplishments, the young star has never forgotten his Mississipi roots.
Recently, he came to town to direct music videos for a musician, also from the Magnolia state, who has seen major success in Japan.
 
This Spring, Daniel will be given a plaque that will be displayed along a one-mile trail at the Quisenberry Library in Clinton, the city he is from. The plaques will feature noteworthy people from Clinton who have gone on to do great things.
 
We talked to Daniel about how it feels to be acknowledged in that way. “It feels great to first be accepted by your hometown but to do be honored. I find it to be a great honor for someone to put you in stone and say for the rest of these years, there will be a legacy there. I’m appreciative,” he said.
 
Daniel is hoping to use his life as an example and inspiration for other Missippians to go after their dreams. He believes Mississippi has plenty of resources and untapped potential that is waiting to be put to use.
