History of Danielle Manning:
Tea takes Dani to Llanview where they plan to bury Ross but he shows up alive! Ross says goodbye to Dani telling her to give Todd a chance and accept him as her father. After reading online about the many awful things about Todd, Dani reveals the truth to Matthew and he introduces her to Starr - who she realizes is her half sister. Starr helps Dani see the good things in their father, but she refuses and continues to avoid him. Feeling a strong connection with Matthew, Danielle kisses him just as Tea walks in on them! Danielle had the displeasure of meeting Destiny, (who also likes Matthew), and the two fight to compete for his attention. They are auditioning for the lead in a school play about the life of Danielle’s half sister, Starr.
Dani won the lead part of “Starr” and fell for her costar, Nate, who’s playing ‘Cole'.Dani begins to reach out to Todd until she witnesses Cole beat him up for pushing his mother, Marty down the stairs. She is horrified to learn Marty was pregnant and distances herself from Todd even more. While talking to Nate on a park bench about her problems, she kisses him. Matthew asks Dani to the prom and she accepts but only after seeing Nate has asked someone else.
Dani broke up Matthew and began dating Nate. Dani and Nate got in trouble with convict, ‘Bull’, after finding his stash of money. Nate was released from a hostage situation after Dani and Todd rescued him. Overcome with grief as Tea’s brain tumor worsened, Dani bonded with Todd, Nate and Destiny after her death. Ross returned to Llanview and gains custody of Dani and later tells Todd she loves him! Dani discovered Ross’ lifeless body at the docks and blamed Todd; later she finds Tea alive in a secluded warehouse after being kidnapped by Eli. Todd banned her from Nate after catching them undressed and Dani decided to teach him a lesson by hiding out.
