Is Daniel Levy married? Is he a part of the LGBTQ+ community? What is he like off-screen? Does he have a partner?
Daniel Levy has been a big name in show business ever since the major success of his hit show Schitt’s Creek, but how much do you really know about him?
Born August 9, 1983, Daniel is a Canadian actor, writer, producer, and TV personality. He is also the son of Eugene Levy, the only actor to have appeared in all eight of the American Pie movies.
Daniel Levy is no stranger to the red carpet, but he’s stayed out of the tabloid spotlights and kept his persona pretty clean.
Is Daniel Levy Married? The Answer—and Other Surprising Facts
For answers to all of these questions and more, keep reading to learn about this rising comedy star.
1. Is Daniel Levy Married?
While Dan Levy might be living out a gay love story in Schitt’s Creek, his real-life romance is a little more guarded.
He tends to stay out of the eye of the media and doesn’t give much attention to magazines or talk-show hosts when it comes to his personal life and romantic endeavors.
That said, while there’s no clear answer to “is Daniel Levy married?” floating around on the internet, the likely answer is: no.
Dan seems to be enjoying his youth and keeping his dating life private, at least for now. Is a showstopper wedding in his future? Wait and see.
2. Is He a Part of the LGBTQ+ Community?
Many people who see Dan Levy’s character, David, on Schitt’s Creek love the pansexual representation. There’s a lack of pan representation in popular media, and a lot of people worry about pan erasure. But is he pansexual in real life?
While Dan Levy isn’t pan in real life, he is a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Daniel came out as a gay man when he was 18 years old. His parents were supportive, luckily, and he was able to thrive in his Hollywood community.
Dan wanted the pansexual representation in his show despite it not quite matching up with his “real life” sexuality. Even though the character doesn’t perfectly represent him, he loved the idea of not having to fit perfectly inside of a box and not being asked to.
3. What Else Has Daniel Levy Done?
If you haven’t been paying attention, Levy might have popped up out of nowhere directly onto the set of Schitt’s Creek. To people in the know with reality television, though, Daniel Levy isn’t a new name.
He’s hosted or guest-hosted several shows since he was 21 years old. He worked on MTV Canada!
He’s also hosting the Great Canadian Baking Show, a sister to the Great British Baking Show that so many people know and love.
Alongside his reality television work, he pops up as a guest in some acting roles as well. Have you spotted him recently?
4. Was He Born Famous?
If his name sounds familiar (or his signature eyebrows tipped you off), you might be on to something.
Daniel Levy is the son of Eugene Levy (major film star and his on-screen dad on Schitt’s Creek), but that didn’t necessarily give him a straight shot to stardom.
His parents kept him and his sister (also a Schitt’s Creek regular) out of the limelight to give them a more normal childhood. Dan Levy even worked at a video store before his rise to fame (does that sound familiar?).
So, in part, yes he was born famous. He wasn’t born with the way paved for him, though.
5. Can You Get His Style?
Well, kind of.
While you might not be able to steal his look (which doesn’t match David’s, bonus fact!) you can totally get his eyewear style for yourself.
Dan Levy has his own eyewear line that you can cop and wear to match his signature style.
He’s a man of many talents, and acting is only one of them. Fashion and design is another, and it’s a strong one!
6. What Did He Do for Schitt’s Creek?
Dan Levy isn’t only an actor in his hit show.
Schitt’s Creek is the brainchild of Dan and Eugene who worked together to pitch and create the program for a Canadian Network.
While they both obviously have starring roles, and the roles, in ways, reflect real life, they also worked behind the scenes.
The show is a family affair, with Dan, Eugene, and Sarah Levy all working together to bring it to life. Dan specifically wanted to create a world within his show where inclusivity thrived and homophobia didn’t exist.
This show wasn’t just acted out by Dan, he helped make it too.
7. Is Dan Levy Confident?
Whenever we see actors, we imagine them to be the epitome of confidence and grace. The reality, however, isn’t always so clear.
Daniel Levy is open about his experiences with shyness and anxiety, and how they impacted his career in and out of the Hollywood red carpet and limelight.
Working on-screen is hard, and it’s harder still when one is afraid of strangers or messing up. Do you think working alongside his family helped him out?
Anxiety and confidence don’t necessarily conflict, but it’s nice to see a celebrity as human sometimes.
Dan Levy, a Rising Star within the Queer Community
It’s normal to want to know everything about your favorite celebrity. “Is Daniel Levy married?”, “Is Dan Levy an LGBTQ+ actor?” and other questions are likely pop into your mind if you’re a fan of Schitt’s Creek. You’re not alone.
Representation is important and learning about celebrities who are openly LGBTQ+ is empowering.
In 2019, Levy was featured in OUT Magazine’s “Out 100” list of the year’s most impactful LGBTQ+ leaders. In March 2020, he was bestowed with the HRC Visibility Award. Personally, I can’t wait to see what Dan Levy does next in show business—or life.

Just finished watching this series on Netflix…this evening. Binge watched it in about a week and a half. This is now my favorite show of all time, which is saying a lot since I’m 71 years old. Ha! Every actor on this show is incredible, but I am in awe of Daniel Levy! Wow! Creative genius! Plus I love his smile! I’ve never rooted more for a group of characters/actors! I plan to watch it again…at a slower pace this next time!
RICCI CINQUINI says
MY FATHER WHO PASSED ON NOV. 4th 2020 LOOKED LIKE JOHNNY ROSE AND ACTED LIKE HIM. I HAVE WATCH THE CHRISTMAS SCENCE 20 TIMES BECAUSE MY DAD AND I WENT TO THE LOCAL NURSERY IN OUR SMALL TOWN OF OAKLEY CALIF. AND PICK OUT THE TREE. WHEN WE GOT BACK TO OUR HOME MY MOM HAD HOT CHOCOLATE WAITING FOR US AS WE DECORATED THE TREE AS A FAMILY. I CRY EVERY TIME I SEE THIS EPISODE BECAUSE IT REMINDS ME OF MY DAD. CHRISTMAS WAS IMPORTANT TO MY DAD AND HE MADE IT SPECIAL. HE PASSED FROM CANCER AND NOW I FEEL LIKE AN ORPANE.
Connie leverich says
My husband’s fraternity brothers told us about the show. We just finished all 6 seasons in 10 days watching every night after getting home from work. Best show ever!! We are obsessed and have started watching it all over. again. Kudos to them for completing the series at the top even though we were wanting more!!! Just loved the characters and we ended every day happy after watching it. Love, love, love this show. Now my all time favorite!
Best show with best cast!
Ronald W Warman says
Congrats to the entire cast, everyone feels like a personal friend. I binge watch constantly, the show really lights up my day.
Every actor on the show are wonderful, but being a gay 74 year old man who has been in a relationship with another man for 42 years (10 legally married), I love David and Patrick characters and their daily tribulations and endearing love they send to the audience,
However, they couldn’t exist without the wonderful co actors., who help them justify their existence.
Can’t wait to get my merchandise I ordered.
Ron & Gary
P.S. Daniel waiting for the movie because you have that great idea in you.
I started watching during Christmas break from work and I am addicted! I can hardly tear myself away to get to bed at night, because I just want to watch “one more episode.” I absolutely LOVE Dan Levy, and his character David! He would be such a hoot to hang out with. I would love it if we were friends!
The entire cast was selected for the best possible mix of laughs, tears and everything in between. I especially love the relationships that have developed along the way, with Stevie and Patrick and others, and David’s relationship with Alexis (the bickering and the caring). I can’t wait to see what Dan Levy does next!!!
Schists creek is the best! It has brought so much laughter to our family this past year. Thanks so much for creating such a wonderful story. Fantastic actors all of which deserve more awards!!! Wish you could bring it back for many more seasons or create another comedy series.
Love this show (hooked) Love David he is so cool watch it late at night on channel 20 ! When it’s on ! Hate it was canceled ! Great actors!
It wasnt cancelled. Dan and Eugene Levy decided to end it on a high note.
Somehow we never watched Schitt’s Creek before. It was on at a time when we didn’t happen upon it, and our lives have been too busy for much television. During the Pandemic, we binged some shows. I had seen a few isolated episodes and I suggested we try it. Our entire family was immediately hooked. The show brought us laughter during a very sad time and made us feel a part of their world. We have slowed down on our binging because we were halfway through before we came up for air. The thought of having no new Schitt’s Creek episodes has made us slow our consumption down and treasure each more.
Di Smith says
I’m a 60 year old grandma living in Australia and absolutely LOVE Schitt’s Creek. I came upon it rather late and by accident just scrolling Netflix one night. I’m now 5 seasonings in and am already dreading the end of the show. So many laughs and cringe moments! Thanks Canada for sharing this with the world
Nancy Georges says
I was addicted to the “news; until, I discovered “Schitts Creek.” Now I am sane, once again.
The show has so many laugh inducing moments, I cannot live without it. I will continue to watch it over and over. Thank you, actors for saving my life. You are the best ever….
Patricia Armstrong says
I agree wholeheartedly with you. I love this show. It saved me during this dreadful pandemic. It was a real gift.
Thank you to all for this gem.
Rose Grage says
I sit down as often as I can to watch 4 or 5 episodes at a time… I’m half way through Season 4, and don’t want it to end….. love this entire cast….
Cindy Shaw says
While traveling to Key West with my daughter I came upon her watching this series. She was hooked. That being said she told me “Mom you have to watch this.” Once returning home “Springfield, Ohio” I did. OMG. Love it.
We live in Marietta and we love this show too!
Jody Akins says
My daughter told me the same thing…”Mom, OMG, you have to watch Schitt’s Creek…you will love it!” She was right. I have watched it several times and noticed something new each time.
Dianna Polk says
I am on my fourth time watching all six seasons! I just cannot get enough of Schitt’s Creek and I watch as I lay in bed at the end of the day. It makes me happy to know that we can escape at the end of the day to a HAPPY PLACE! Thank all of you for making that possible, especially in the world we live in today.
Same here! I’m on my 8th time around and the show makes me happy anytime of day!! Dan levy is a genius and deserves the absolute best.
Irene Ankney says
I love Schmitt Creek! Just finished watching the series! I didn’t want it to end! My favorite character was David! The show was so good tat I hated it ended.
Rounda Bend says
Election (read: insanity), pandemic, power shut offs, fires, fires, and more fires, drought, no rain for seven straight months, dead, brown, dead, no exit. Happened upon this Schitt and I swear to God it’s keep me insane enough to stay sane. I love settling down with my nightly liter of wine and watching. Welcome relief and refuge, at least for one hour in the day. Thank you Levy’s.
Not yet Completely Insane in Northern California (But Close!)
Diana Dunaway says
I….LOVE….DANIEL. I WANT TO BE HIS FRIEND. HE IS HILARIOUS IN SCHITT’S CREEK!!!!!
Robbie Horwitz says
Schitt’s Creek has totally taught mr how to laugh again!
David Levy..you are my hero@!
Julie Malmberg says
I was despondent until an episode of this show popped up on an “odd” channel at 10p, then 1030p weeknights. I heard myself laugh out loud! They may be reruns (?), as I di not have cable but “Thank You”, Levy’s, Ms. O’Hara (!!!)-and I am reminded how I miss my long lost old SCTV favorites (Candy, Martin) from sooo long ago. Canadians are the best. Let me in the gate please?
I find it very interesting how this article claimed that Dan is enjoying his youth ( he’s 37 ) but I’d bet a million bucks that such a statement would never be said if this was about a women who was 37. It’s SO ANNOYING.
On the flip side Schitts Creek was such an awesome surprise. Like so many others I quickly became addicted to it! Hilarious show with important messages flawlessly thrown in. Still think it ended way to early but I respect their decision to do so. Go Canada!
Marilyn mcTighe says
Loved finally show but has left me wanting more!!!!!!!!!my idea: continue wit h aDavid having surrogate. Maybe Alexis but Ronnie would be best. Moira would do day care .
Louise Sweeting says
Perfect show for the Coronavirus era. Heard about the 9 Emmys and started watching.
Completely and utterly hooked! Although, to be fair, this has more to do with Daniel Levy
than anything else. His character of David Rose is sweet, vulnerable and CLASSY.
A prodigious talent. The scene where he sings You’re the Best to Patrick is sublime.
I shall cherish that scene for at least a year.
A Brit, I live in British Columbia.
Cheryl Shushan says
I binge watched this series over three days after newly accessing Netflix. I watched the first show and was hooked!
The show was fresh, funny, insightful, and heartwarming. I enjoyed seeing the characters’ personalities evolve over the six years.
I am so disappointed that the series ended!
susan spitz says
It’s not a Netflix product. It’s Canadian – POPtv.com that broadcasts the show, Netflix just streams it.
Actually it’s shown on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)
Andrew Mcmanners says
Well done Netflix for creating this brilliant show
I love this show! I will say though, this article states Dan Levy “helped make” this show, but truthfully the show was actually his brainchild, he wrote most of it, and served as a show runner for the entire run (solo for seasons 2-6, season 1 he was co show runner with his dad)
Just finished watching 1 thru 5. Absolutely love the show. Lots of my friends are watching now. So sorry to hear season 6 is the last season. Wish would keep going. Best comedy on TV in so so long! Thanks for the laughs in our troubled 🌎 world. We need them!!!!
Wendy Donnelly says
I love this show and it has lessons to learn, how family should be supportive about others sexuality, and that it should be ok for one to be who they are. I am not gay, but I still think if you find love at all, it is to be cherished.
Cynthia D Hines says
I adore Schitts Creek. I have seen 1-5 series twice. I look forward to season six in October, when it comes out on Netflix. It is the most clever dhow I have ever seen. I love all of the characters, outstanding casting! I especially love David. I am crushed that the show ended. Why!
Sammy Mikulski and Robert Mikulski says
Congratulations to you all. My husband and I watched the show , bought season 6 , then watched it again for the acting. I am a theatre director, and my husband was a Broadway Musical Director. We can’t thank you enough for the many lessons taught by your cast not only how to act and react, but how the world can be. We left the professional business because so many people were not very kind. It has been great reading and watching about how your group is when working together as an ensemble. We always hoped we could be a part of a group like that, but I guess it wasn’t meant for us. That being said, we are thrilled that there are actors like what we always hoped for, a real family unit! Keep up the wonderful work.
Cathy Katzenberger says
I love his character on Schitts Creek. I am currently watching the series for the 10th time. I was chomping at the bit to watch season 6 and was completely baffled when it was announced that they were not renewing the show! How could they possible cancel this show??? Everyone I know watched it. I’m so upset by this I can’t even express my deep disappointment in Netflix.
HI Cathy- The reason the show did not go on was not bc Netflix “canceled” it- it was actually the creators decision. Dan Levy has spoken about this decision in many many interviews. Just wanted to end on a high note. Sure you’ve come upon this info by now.
Julie Mire says
Not an LGBTQ + community member but I loved the way everything was presented in this show. Just becaise I am straight I don’t like being “stereotyped’ either. I am
In full support of
Anyone wanting to
They are and who has the right to say that’s wrong. I love
It and I love
Dan’s writing and his comedic infusion.
