She may be better known for her recent stint on Love Island and being the offspring of cockney wide-boy Danny Dyer, but Dani is also an actress and her next feature project comes in the form of psychological thriller Heckle.

Heckle tells the tale of a stand-up comedian’s encounter with an obsessed audience member that takes a spine-chilling turn.

Directed by Emmy-nominated Martyn Pick, the cast also includes music icon Toyah Wilcox, Hellraiser‘s Nicholas Vince, Facebook sensation Stuggy and Clark Gable III (grandson of the Gone With the Wind star).

Before going into the Love Island villa, Dyer said:

I had such fun filming Heckle! It was an amazing project to be a part of, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Speaking of Dani’s involvement, Pick said:

From the first rehearsal, Dani shone out with her effortless natural comic timing and heart. On the location shoots, she had great commitment and range in her performance. She gave us down-to-earth humour and banter along with genuine confusion and terror in the horror scenes. On top of that, she was a supreme team player. She knew her role inside out, precisely hit all the marks and was always generous and affable with the cast and crew.

Heckle is produced by UK-based Voodoo Productions. Filming is close to completion and expected to be released just in time for Halloween.

Dani has previously appeared in Doghouse (2009), We Still Kill the Old Way (2014) and Bonded by Blood 2 (2017).
