Daniel Curtis Lee – Top of the Class
Q) What are some of the current projects that you are working on?
A) Right now I am not doing much. I am just working on Ned’s and auditioning.
Q) On “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” you play the role of Cookie. Please tell us a bit about your character.
A) Cookie is this crazy, really nerdy guy. He has these glasses that reflect into the computer screen into his eyes so he can see and find anything he needs to know. He’s amazing on the Internet and whatever he needs to know and he can find it. He’s just a crazy computer whiz.
Q) You are one of the three leads on the show. How do you feel being on such a top rated Nickelodeon show?
A) It feels great! I never would have imagined it since I’m from a very small town in Mississippi…
Q) What made you want to be a part of the show “Ned’s Declassified?”
A) My brother and sister were actors back in Mississippi. We moved out to California, so my brother could start his acting career. I sort of tagged along one day to an open audition. They asked me to audition and I got it!
Q) You’ve done guest stints on “First Monday” and “The Shield.” What show would you really love to make an appearance on?
A) I’d love to make an appearance on the ABC show “Lost.” It’s my favorite show and I can’t wait for them to start showing new episodes.
Q) Who would you most like to work with in the future and why them?
A) I would probably like to work with Jamie Foxx. He won the Academy Award and he’s a great actor. I loved Ray.
Q) What was your transition like from Mississippi to LA?
A) It was pretty smooth except for when I found out I was actually moving. I really did not want to come out here. I wanted to stay in Mississippi because we lived in the country. You could run around and do whatever you wanted to and there was lot of trees and I was like, “Moving to the big city…I’m not sure I’ll be ready for that.” Other than that, once I made it out here, everything was fine.
Q) You have completed one Christian/Gospel album with your brother Nathaniel, Jr. as the group “BrotherLee.” Are there any plans for another album?
A) I don’t really know yet. We are still singing in different churches and singing together at home. You’ll have to wait and find out…(smile)
Q) What do you do in your spare time?
A) I love playing football with my friends and my brother. I just got a new laptop and I’ve been playing computer games. Other than that, I just like hanging out and playing guitar.
Q) What would you like to say to your fans and supporters?
A) Thank you for supporting me, continue to watch the show and be cool!
