As a child she was inspired by her three older sisters. With them being 9,10 and 11 years older, she looked up to them, all who are creative in their own way.
Daphne started acting at the age of 3. She did local plays and musicals at her school until she was 12, she later moved to Los Angeles. While she inspires teens, she is also living her dream. Blunt is best known for starring as Kayla in the Radio Disney series “My Dream,” which is described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a contemporary story on a format reminiscent of the 1940s, before TV was pervasive.” The character Kayla is a 14-year-old teenage girl from the Midwest who wants to be rockstar. Listeners follow her in each episode as she pursues her dream while dealing with the usual struggles, responsibilities and emotional ups and downs of an everyday teen. At the age of 10, Blunt made her first television appearance on the CBS daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless.” She starred in the movie, “The Things You Lose in the Ocean,” which premiered in May 2010 as part of the Dodge College Graduate Thesis Program at Chapman University in Orange, California.
