Not many of us are blessed with a career that also happens to be our hobby, but for Diana Danielle, this rare combination is the driving force that keeps her going. The pan-Asian beauty who has won several awards including Best Supporting Actress at the 29th Malaysia Film Festival 2017 and 21st Skrin Awards 2017 made her acting debut at the age of nine in TV drama, Idola, after which her popularity rose.
When she was 12, Diana didn’t have a choice but to continue working as an actress when her single mother was diagnosed with cancer and she had to take on the responsibility of paying her mother’s hospital bills.
Diana, whose last movie was Gol & Gincu 2 that was showcased last year, has decided to put her acting career on hold to focus on her beauty business. “I started my own eco skincare company, Organika Beauty. It’s my first attempt at running a business and I have my mum who’s an experienced accountant to assist me,” she shares.
Diana also has a passion for fast cars, which explains why she signed up for season three of the Vios Challenge Race by Toyota. But that wasn’t the only reason why she joined the race. “At season one of the challenge, I was the first female to make it to the podium and at the beginning of season two, I observed that only the guys were winning. So I challenged myself to work hard to get to that level. Imagine the surprise on my face when they announced my name as season two’s champion!” she exclaims.
The star who manages her vlog called Diana Danielle TV will be heading to Gold Coast, Australia, in December to create a new show called Surviving Australia with D! “There, I’ll also be pursuing my studies in film-making. I want to be a producer so that I can create content that I feel is important. I want to inspire people through stories, which I feel has the power to influence others,” she shares.
