The former Celebrity Love Island contestant started his own drama club in Hertford after struggling to find acting work, according to The Sun.
A flyer for the 34-year-old's business notes his appearance as Sol Patrick on the Channel 4 soap and claims he "went on to play some great roles in various TV shows and films".
Danan has spent the past three years studying method acting in Los Angeles.
In his classes, he plans to "[give] back the techniques, wisdom and experience that was taught to him along the way".
Danan was charged with two drugs offences back in 2010.
