I think danny dyer is a great actor, i I loved him from human traffic and ever since then I watched all his films and I loved him in football factory and of the course the business. People often ask me who my favourite actor of today is and when I say danny dyer they look at me funny not knowing who he is, of course as soon as i mention football factory they agree, but I know the day will come when as soon as i mention your name they will know who im talking about you will be up there with Robert de Niro and some of the greatest actors of all time. I also think its great to know that even though your making it big time you are still grounded and with your girlfriend and daughter, its nice to see fame hasnt gone to your head like most famous people these days. Good Luck

Totally he agree, he is well fit! my husband is into all those violent films and I was always bored stupid, but now I can't get to the cinema or get a dvd quick enough if I know he is in it!! I love all of his films and will always watch everything he is in, even watching the real football factories, my husband thinks its great I like the same, if only he knew the reason why!!I too think its so bad that he only gets paid that much money for what he does, he is the best actor on screen NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!!!!
