Be­ing an ac­tor is such a chal­lenge be­cause you face the pos­si­bil­ity of con­stant re­jec­tion. How­ever, you must fo­cus on your goals and sur­round your­self with pos­i­tive and as­sur­ing peo­ple to make sure that the pres­sures do not get to you.”

Daphne Louise Blunt re­cently starred as Emma in the new Nick­elodeon show “The Thun­der­mans.” Blunt is the face of Fan­lala.com, where she reg­u­larly in­ter­views celebri­ties on the red car­pets of Hol­ly­wood, an­chors Fan­lala’s web TV news show The Feed, and stars in her own fash­ion and style show, Daphne’s Look of the Week. Blunt also does the lead voice-over for Fan­lala.com’s Josie and her Celebrity Friends, a com­edy fol­low­ing a teenage girl and her imag­i­nary celebrity friends.

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.

You may have also seen Daphne on tele­vi­sion se­ries and films in­clud­ing the Nick­elodeon game show, “BrainSurge,” Life­time movie, “Amish Grace,” Dis­ney.com we­bisode So­lu­tion Street and the 2009 tele­vi­sion pi­lot, “My Daddy is the Pres­i­dent.”

She says act­ing was just some­thing that she al­ways loved and as­pired to do. Her goal in the in­dus­try is to per­fect her “craft” and to keep try­ing to get bet­ter and bet­ter at what she does. As she keeps on host­ing she will be ready for what­ever else the in­dus­try brings to her. DT
