Shameless star Tina Malone’s daughter – Danielle Malone – joining cast of Hollyoaks!

The Sun today reports that Shameless star Tina Malone’s daughter Danielle is joining the cast of Hollyoaks.

29 year old Danielle will first appear in a few episodes, but will become a regular cast member later this year.

Tina, who of course plays drug dealer Mimi Maguire in Shameless, said of her daughter landing the role, “Two years of trying to get her a job and she just kept getting episodes, and now she’s gone full-time.”

Tina also remarked that there are several similarities between her own career and Danielle’s.

She explained that Danielle’s first film scene was with Boardwalk Empire actor Stephen Graham, as was her own.

She said, “It’s just so bizarre. The first scene I ever did in my life 23 years ago was with a 16-year-old Stevie Graham.”
