We had the good fortune of connecting with Daniel Gottfried and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daniel, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
The end goal is to win as many awards & accomplishments as I can such as an Emmy, Oscar, tony & Grammy while continuing to make the world a better place & by providing the top notch of entertainment in all the roles I play. I want to have played over 250 roles with over 100 of them as a lead by the time I end my acting career. I also want to have at least 5 songs released when all is said & done. Finally to have more then 1000 celebrities buy a piece from my wholesale brand CELEBRITYDIAMONDS305 when I choose to retire!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
In the acting world I am in a movie called MobKing which will be released summer of 2022. I’m also on a TV show called Ultimate Invasion which just got released on Amazon Prime on February 22, 2022. I’ve also have done some short films that are released. I have two upcoming projects that are in the works as well as another short film too. My first single father you are my lifeline will be released in the upcoming months ahead along with a music video that will follow. I would say what sets me apart from anybody else is my kindness my big heart the fact that I’m very loyal and I’m always giving and I think differently than other people which allows me to play all the roles that I play differently too. I’m extremely proud that I am open to the world about my struggles being on the spectrum and while I am high functioning I’d rather be my honest self then to create a mischievous manipulative lying persona. When you are at your most honest self the world is yours and nobody can take that away from you. To get to where I am today I did a lot of self reflecting and had a lot of days where I had to work hard and I am making connections as well as take lots of classes to be able to prepare me for the roles that I am currently taking on. Nothing was easy but I enjoy the process of taking all these classes to learn more about this industry to prepare me for my acting career. I still take classes as you always want to be on top of your game! I feel like I’m always ready for what is next to come in my acting career because of all the preparation that I have done. The biggest lessons that I have learned is to make your own content don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do anything especially if you put your mind to it then you can do it! I also learned that you will have good days bad days in between days but just always stay prepared and always be ready for what’s to come because it just takes one person to see what you do for them to like you for than the world to like you and so your artistic endeavours will fly out of the park!!! I just want the world to follow my career because you’re all in for a special treat and I highly believe that we’re all in this ride together for the long haul. I just stay humble each day and blessed to do what I love Daily & appreciate each & every one my fans!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
So since I live in Miami I would say one day you have to check out South Beach and go to Lincoln Road to shop and then afterwards go to the beach and rent a JetSki or a boat so you can do some water activities. Then I would eat dinner at harbour Grill in Surfside.
The next day I will go to South Miami for the whole day visit zoological wildlife foundation so you can play with baby animals and learn how to conserve them & save them while reintroducing them to the wild safely. I would then eat dinner at Prime 112 the Steak House!
The next day I will go to Wynwood in Miami walk around and take pictures of all the art and then go to the Miami design District for some shopping and then I will go to work out at DBC fitness.
Then have dinner at 800 degrees in Aventura.
After that the next day I would go to the seabold building to buy jewelry and watches. Then in evening I would go to a Miami Heat Game buying floor seats as that’s an experience itself.
Then I will have dinner at prime Italian.
The next day I would do a hike at Big Cyprus National Park reserve. Do all the activities at Offer there for the whole day and then get back to your hotel and do dinner at your hotel or room service as you will be exhausted from such a fun day.
Then the next day after that I will go to the Everglades national park do a tour on a boat to see some alligators. After that I will go to the beach in sunny isles rent some chairs. After the beach I will go get dinner at Soho Asian Bar & Grill. And then to party my night away I will go to club Liv!!!!
Finally on my last day I will go to Aventura Mall to shop then
Go to ipic to watch a movie. After that I will go to enjoy the pool at my hotel pack and get ready to home after an amazing week!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to shoutout my mentor Ciro Dapaggio. He is the best thing that has happened to me in my entertainment career thus far. Ciro always puts everyone else before himself yet in the short amount of time that I have known him but he is a true father figure to me & i actually call him my pop since that’s how close we have gotten. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. Ciro always has my back and he always looks out for me. He is a true definition of a leader mentor and just have a pure good human being with an unbelievable soul!!! He has amazing projects coming out such as in MobKing the Movie Suit Casting Silent Partners and many more. So everybody give this man a heart welcoming thank you for everything he does for this world!!!
