Brant Daugherty may not be as well known as most of the cast in Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars, but he definitely brings along a passionate fan base to the show.
Daugherty is best known as Noel in ABC Family’s hit television show Pretty Little Liars, which has a very vocal fan base that will no doubt turn out to support one of the show’s actors. However, he doesn’t play a central character nor a particularly charismatic one, so that might put a damper on his chances.
He was previously seen on the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives, and will next be seen in the Hallmark television movie The Michaels.
Daugherty is a college graduate [unlike most of Hollywood and probably most Dancing with the Stars alumni], having gone to Columbia College Chicago for film production. He will make his feature film debut in The Starving Games, which will be a spoof of The Hunger Games.
Daugherty’s partner on the show will be Peta Murgatroyd, another Dancing with the Stars regular. She debuted on Season 13 of the show, and although she was eliminated quickly during that season, she went on to win the Mirror Ball trophy in Season 14.
