Throughout her multi-decade career, Tony award-winner, Daisy Eagan, has dazzled audiences from the stage to television and film, and with her writing. Eagan can currently be seen on Freeform’s critically-acclaimed series, “Good Trouble” which premiered season two on June 18, 2019. The series, a spin-off from the smash hit show “The Fosters,” follows Callie (Maia Mitchell) and Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as they embark on the next phase of their young adult lives in Los Angeles. Eagan was introduced in season one as night-time AM radio talk show host, Joey Riverton, who is dating Callie’s and Mariana’s building manager, Alice Kwan (Sherry Cola). Season two opens up with Joey coming out as non-binary to Alice.
Additional television credits include HULU’s “The Path,” HBO’s “Girls,” CBS’ “The Mentalist,” “Without a Trace,” “Ghost Whisperer,” “The Unit” and “Numb3rs.”
Well-known for her stage work, Eagan recently performed at The 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which is the single largest celebration of arts and culture globally, and takes place annually in August for three weeks in the city of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital. Eagan appeared in “30 Minute Musicals: Roulette” which consisted of three different shows: “Top Gun,” “Die Hard,” and “Jurassic Park” and each night the audience voted on which musical they wanted to see. She also performed in the new play by Steve Yockey, “Sleeping Giant,” which explores what happens when an ancient beast is awoken in a small lake in a town. Eagan performed daily throughout the festival’s run from August 2nd – 26th.
At age eleven, Eagan became the youngest actress to win a Tony Award for Best Performance by A Featured Actress for playing Mary Lennox in “The Secret Garden.” In 2016, Eagan returned to “The Secret Garden” for the 25th anniversary concert production at Lincoln Center, taking on the role of Martha, Mary’s chambermaid and sympathetic caretaker. She then reprised the role in Washington, D.C. with the musical being co-produced by The Shakespeare Theatre Company. Eagan then went on to play Brigid Blake in the First National Tour of Stephen Karam’s Tony winning play, “The Humans.”
Additional theatre credits include appearing in “Les Miserables” and “James Joyce’s The Dead” both on Broadway, and starring and writing three one-woman shows: “Daisy Eagan: Fuck You. I Love You.,” “Still Daisy After All these Years” and “One For My Baby.” Each show explored deeply funny and sometimes tragic themes, as Eagan intertwines a wide spectrum of songs into her storytelling.
A published award-winning writer with a loyal and growing audience, Eagan is a fierce fighter and activist for women’s and LGBTQIA+ rights. She is a rousing voice in political arenas and continues to fight for change throughout her literary career. She has penned op-eds for publications including HuffPost and Playbill.com, and had a column for USA Today Network’s The Journal News.
