Who is Danika Yarosh?
Born on 1 October 1998, in Bedminster, New Jersey, under the air sign of Libra, Danika Yarosh is a 20-year-old American actress, probably best known for her roles in “Shameless” on Showtime and “Heroes Reborn” by NBC. In 2016, she achieved global fame by assuming the role of Jack’s daughter in “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”, alongside Tom Cruise. A dancer from an early age, Danika had all the tools to surprise the world by taking on the role of Karen Davidson in “Billy Elliot: The Musical”, a Broadway show which eventually won a Tony Award. Using her numerous talents and an uncanny approach towards acting, Danika has managed to become one of the most sought-after young actresses in all of Hollywood.
Early Life: Destined for Stardom from the Get-Go
Danika was born into an American family in the town of Bedminster, to parents Linda and Victor Yarosh, of mixed Swedish, Russian, Ukrainian, German and Danish roots. Her dad was in the US Air Force, which resulted in him traveling a lot and not being at home for more than a few days at a time. Nevertheless, Linda took on the responsibility of raising Danika and her three siblings, Amanda, Erik and Peter. Peter is younger than Danika, while Erik and Amanda, who is also an actress, are both older than her. From an early age, Danika had a knack for the performing arts. At the tender age of five, she made her acting debut as an extra in the critically-acclaimed sci-fi horror film, “The Stepford Wives” – interestingly, the movie was shot in her hometown – and she had the opportunity to meet Nicole Kidman. ‘I still remember that day and my parents telling me how famous she was. I wanted to be just like her!’, she said of the occasion. While at such a young age, Danika already knew what she wanted to do in life.
Career Beginnings: Crush, A Breath Away and More
After her acting debut in 2004, Danika started focusing on ballet. She was an exceptional talent and managed to win several regional and national competitions even before she turned 10. In 2008, she put her dancing and acting skills to good use by being cast as Karen Davidson in the Tony Award-winning production of “Billy Elliot: The Musical”. The ten-year-old amazed everyone, and was a big reason why this musical received such rave reviews. Her next appearance was in “Crush”, a short movie centered around child romance, then she had a guest role in a 2010 episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” Afterwards, we could see her in “Celebrity Ghost Stories”, “A Breath Away”, and in the hit comedy show “30 Rock”, alongside Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey. For her roles in “A Christmas Wedding Tail” and “In Plain Sight”, she had to travel to the West Coast of the US, then in 2012 at the age of 13, Danika and her mother permanently moved to Los Angeles, California so that she could pursue more acting opportunities – eventually the relocation paid off, big time.
Continued Success: The Color of Time, See Dad Run and More
2012 saw Danika appear in “The Color of Time”. The movie depicts the story behind the life of CK Williams, a Pulitzer-Prize winner, poet and one of the most famous columnists of the 20th century, with James Franco and Mila Kunis starring. Based on 11 of his poems, the movie is recorded in a dream-like atmosphere, which didn’t go quite well with the critics. After “Retribution”, Danika made her big breakthrough, when she was cast as Olivia in “See Dad Run”, a comedy show about a father who decided to reverse roles with his wife, and stay at home while she’s pursud her career. In 2014, she continued where she left off the year before, by taking on the part of Holly Herkimer in “Shameless”, a comedy-drama that depicts the life and times of the Gallaghers, an Irish-Family which lives in Chicago, who get into crazy situations all the time, while young Holly is usually the voice of reason. 2015 saw her return to “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” for two more episodes.
Recent Works: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Chicago P.D. and Greenhouse Academy
The last few years have been pretty busy for Danika, as she succeeded in capitalizing on the hype surrounding her ever since she was a child. In 2016, critics praised her performance as Samantha in “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back”, and pointed out that she’d become a much more versatile actress than before; the movie tells the story of a former military officer who is accused of murder and espionage. After appearing as Ellie Olstern on “Chicago P.D.”, Danika scored the part of Brooke Osmond in “Greenhouse Academy”, a new hit show. While she currently doesn’t have any series or films in pre-productions, Danika is seemingly ready to take on more challenging tasks in 2020.

Given the fact that she has been an actress from an early age, her parents have continuously protected her from outside influences and rumors. Even if she had a boyfriend, we likely won’t find anything about any such relationship. Danika loves playing volleyball, and also plays the drums and the violin. As a child, she also participated in ice-skating competitions.
