DAVID COFFEY - 'DAN'
David Coffey (25) began his career in television as an editor for The Wrestling Channel. Perfectly content to edit professional wrestling for the rest of his life, David was devastated when the company let him go just a year into his contract.
Like many other Communications graduates before him, David then went on the dole claiming to be developing a number of 'film and television projects'. which really meant sleeping late and watching many, many hours of daytime television.
Despite his busy schedule of sleeping, eating and sitting, David somehow found time to make a pilot for a television show called DAN & BECS which was picked up by Accomplice Television and made into a ten-part series for RTÉ Two, broadcast in early 2007.
David hasn't been working much since the first series of Dan & Becs. He is delighted to be returning to television with Dan & Becs - Series 2.
HOLLY WHITE - 'BECS'
Hailing from Killiney, Co. Dublin, Holly White (24) spent a year at Trinity College studying business, economics and sociology and two years in design before moving to London where she is now a third year journalism student at the London College of Fashion. So far, in London, she has worked for Vogue and Tatler. In Ireland she regularly contributes to the fashion pages of the Irish Times.
Holly met Dave Coffey while spending the summer in Canada and, two years later, he asked her to play the part of 'Becs' in a pilot for Dan & Becs.
Holly spent the summer of 2007 attending the RADA Summer School in London and is delighted to be returning for a second series of Dan & Becs.
