Alongside Evie Douglas, Luke Curran is one of the two friends of the sex maniac Dylan Witter who lives with him. Luke Curran’s name in real life is Daniel Ings.

Well, there are more and more interesting facts you can know about this dashing actor. So, if you wish to know more about the real person behind the character of Luke Curran, come on board. We are here to give a concise description of his life, including facts about his family, love life, wealth, and what have you.

A Quick Look at Daniel Ings Background

Daniel Ings was born to Shayne Ings and a mother whose name has not been disclosed yet. We also do not have records about his brothers or sisters – that’s if he has any sibling. As for his birth, it happened on November 28, 1985, in Wiltshire County, Southwest England.

The highly-rated movie star is an English man by nationality and of Caucasian ethnicity. He grew up on the streets of Wiltshire, United Kingdom. There is, however, no much information about his childhood other than the one given.

The then little Daniel Ings attended Dauntsey’s School, a well-established co-educational independent day and boarding school in the village of West Lavington in Wiltshire, England. After his high school academic activities, he was given admission to the prestigious Lancaster University, where he studied Theatre Arts. He graduated in 2008 and quickly launched into higher grounds.

In the quest to improve in his acting prowess and knowledge, the smoking graduate proceeded to Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and National Art Theatre for more studies. Little wonder he has been impressive in the industry. Since then, there has never been a dull moment in his career.

He Has Appeared in More than 35 Movies and TV Shows

Everyone hopes to find success in their chosen career. Unfortunately, especially in a fickle industry like acting, not many people who have this dream get to live it. Having dedicated his life to training as an actor, Daniel Ings is, fortunately, one of a string of exceptions.

Since he starred in his first onscreen role in 2010 as an unnamed doctor in the TV series, Peep Show, he has gone on to record credits in more than 35 films and TV shows. His first feature-length film was in 2011, in Frankenstein. He played an unnamed character, a servant in the Frankenstein household. His first significant role was in Psychoville, where he played the recurring character, Kelvin, across seven episodes.

As the years went by, and Daniel Ings grew in age, so did his filmography. He added roles in The Café, Pete Versus Life, Uncle, Endeavour, Agatha Raisin to his filmography, among others. Ings’s international profile also grew with his role as Mike Parker in The Crown, and as Luke in Lovesick. His role in the former earned him his first and only award nomination so far – Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series by the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In the Channel 4/Netflix’s Lovesick, Daniel plays Luke Curran in the sitcom, an irresponsible and shallow character who is an app developer. He has appeared in more than 22 episodes across three seasons. He is expected to appear in the subsequent seasons of the show.

Beyond his work on TV and film, Daniel Ings also has a significant stage presence. His stage career began when he was training at the National Art Theatre, and he has gone on to appear in at least seven plays. Ings’s first recorded play was The Master and Margarita, in 2004. Others include White Boy, Tory Boyz, and I See Myself As a Bit of an Indiana Jones Figure. Most recently, he was part of the cast of One Man, Two Guvnors, the 2012 play at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Acting has Earned Him a Modest Net Worth

There are conflicting reports about Daniel Ing’s net worth. While some have it that his net worth is not known, others have it that it is over $1 million. But no one seems to have the exact figures regarding this. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that he has acquired quite a fortune from his career.

He has starred in so many movies, and a good number of them performed well. The fortune of the works can be logically related to the actors’ wallet. Some of the blockbusters which have Daniel’s impressive displays include Eddie and the Eagle, where he played the role of ‘Zach.’ The movie was released in 2016.

There are also Pirates of the Caribbean and Pete Versus Life (where he played ‘Jake’). Others are Lovesick, The Crown, Mount Pleasant, On Strange Tide, and a host of others.

Daniel Ings is a Married Man

Daniel is a married man with a great family. He married Georgia Gibbs, who was his longtime girlfriend. The marriage has been blessed with two sons whose names are not yet publicly known. Quite uniquely, Daniel Ings once recounted how he paid for a hotel and had his wife enjoy the facilities while he took care of the boys back at home. According to him, he did that on Valentine’s day of 2018.

We are yet to trace any information about Ings’ previous relationships. For many, this suggests that he is a very responsible man.

He Shares a Name with a Soccer Player

Daniel Ings

When you google the name, Daniel Ings, you are likely to see results featuring the name, Danny Ings. While they are not the same, Danny is a derivative of Daniel, but more importantly, the actor shares a name with a professional soccer player.

Danny Ings, like Daniel, is also a British personality. He is a soccer player who has played for teams like AFC Bournemouth, Burnley, Liverpool, and currently plays for Southampton. Even more fascinating is although they do not share any familial relationship, they look alike.
