Stop us if you’ve heard this before: A strapping young man begins his career as a model for a renowned modeling agency, booking jobs in some of the biggest cities in the world, all while trying to figure out a way to make it in Hollywood. He finally gets his big break when he’s cast in a much-beloved TV show, and that’s when his dream of becoming an actor finally comes true.
Daniel Di Tomasso is that strapping young man. In his case, “a renowned modeling agency” is Ford Models, and “a much-beloved TV show” is “Witches of East End,” where he played Killian Gardiner, one of the male leads.
In 2014, “Witches” ended its run after only two seasons. While it’s undoubtedly a major disappointment for the fans of the show, the cancelation also brings new opportunities for Daniel. Where he’s heading now, only Daniel knows; anywhere is fair game for the travel buff.
DA MAN: Hi, Daniel! What are you up to these days?
Daniel Di Tomasso: I’ve been traveling quite a bit with work. Finally had a chance to catch my breath over the weekend in Joshua Tree with a couple friends for some camping. Almost froze to death, but it was just what the doctor ordered. [Laughs]
DA MAN: Since “Witches of East End” was canceled, there’s been talk of a possible renewal and even a movie. Anything you can tell us about this?
Daniel Di Tomasso: There has been a strong online movement to get the show back on air. Fans of the show are some of the most passionate around. I wish I had information about a renewal, but your guess is as good as mine. One thing is for sure, the cast still get together on the regular basis.
DA MAN: The characters in “Witches” have the ability to be reincarnated. If you were to die and come back, what would you prefer to become?
Daniel Di Tomasso: I think I’d like to come back as a bird of prey. I just think it would be the most amazing sensation of freedom. Either that, or one of Oprah’s dogs. I feel like her dogs have a pretty good life.
