Daniel Anthony Padilla (born on September 16, 1987) is a co-founder of Smosh and an American online celebrity, actor, writer, filmmaker, producer, and editor. Smosh Productions is the brainchild of Ian Hecox’s closest buddy. On June 14, 2017, Anthony announced his departure from Smosh to pursue a career as an independent content maker.
Personality of Anthony
Anthony was frequently shown as wiser, more obedient, and more mature than Ian (even though their personalities are nearly identical), since he often understands far more about the world than Ian, as evidenced throughout Smosh: The Movie. He is, however, occasionally childish since he believes Toy Story is accurate (which makes Anthony a bit dim-witted and delusional). Ian and Anthony’s personalities are difficult to describe since they frequently role-play and change their attitudes.
Anthony was born in the city of Sacramento, California. When he was born, he declared that he was unplanned. According to “Anthony’s Long Lost Animation,” Anthony has two brothers, one of them is named Mathew. Anthony’s parents divorced when he was two years old.
As Anthony revealed in his second “Draw My Life” video, his mother suffers from severe agoraphobia, and as a child, he had to support his family due to his mother’s agoraphobia. His grandmother was his family’s first supporter, but she departed when he was 14 years old. Anthony and Ian both went to Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California. They both went to American River College in Sacramento, California after graduation, but left out after two years.
Anthony received his driver’s licence when he was a freshman, although he bought a vehicle and started driving earlier because he used to bring Ian home after school, as recounted in an episode of Lunchtime with Smosh and in his YouTube video “Draw My Life.”
His eyes are brown, his complexion is somewhat tanned, and he has wavy brown hair that he styles in a variety of short lengths. Fans adored Anthony’s hair and frequently linked him with it. In The End of Christmas (Part 1), he debuted his new hair for the first time.
Characterization of Anthony in YouTube videos
He knows what Donald Trump’s old skin and cement taste like, according to “Food Battle 2009.” In the videos, Anthony gets murdered several times, and he holds the record for the most times he has died (while playing as himself). Anthony has had a lot of girlfriends in the previous, but they all ended up breaking up with him. He’s been seen doing yoga with this unidentified “Hot Girl,” who was referenced in the episode “My Mom’s AMAZING Video!” Anthony has a thing for Lou Ferrigno, and he even composed a song about him.
In “The Future Sucks!” we find that Anthony will become homeless due to his Celebrehair company failing to owe to a fad in Hollywood where everyone had their hair permanently removed. He follows celebrities to their hair salons, scrapes through the garbage, and sells their hair online.
He adores his hair so much that he wrote a whole song about it when he believed he’d never have any more. Anthony has a peculiar affinity to Ian’s mother, as seen by his appearances in “Paranormal Easy Bake Oven,” He wishes to create a love for her, “Addicted to Selfies,” where he decides to marry her, and other Food Battles and Smosh 2nd Channel films.
He has to put on a mouthguard when Anthony sleeps because otherwise, he grinds his teeth together. Ian was the first to notice it since they shared an apartment with two beds when they went to Hawaii shortly after graduation. Anthony has many other dental concerns, such as chipping his teeth while prepping for a Food Battle when he was supposed to execute a ground act. In an episode of Smosh Is Bored’s “What’s in My Mouth” challenge, he chipped a tooth on a plastic statue of Jesus.
Anthony struggles from panic attacks, claiming in his debut “Draw My Life” that his mother suffered from them and feels they are inherited. When Anthony began eating more appropriately in 2014, he reported extra-treated them.
Padilla played Charlie in Ghostmates (2016) and Bobby in Hedgehogs: The English Version, among other parts.
Padilla is not just a talented YouTuber, but he has also dabbled with music. He made comedy music albums, including “Sexy album” (2010) and “If Music Were Real” through Smosh (2011).
Several times, the Sacramento-born online sensation began writing for Smosh. He did, however, write merely a portion of various programs, as well as whole films. ‘Smosh Babies’ (2013-2017), ‘Smosh’s If It Were Real’ (2013), ‘Super Smosh’ (2015), and ‘Best Interview Ever’ are just a few examples of his work.
Net worth of Anthony
