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 He 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.
