Played: Fox/Daniel Robinson
Tim Phillipps was born in Adelaide on February 16 1989. In 2006, he became a finalist in the “Search for a Star” competition in Australia's teen magazine, Dolly.
The competition offered two readers a chance to win a three-month contract with Neighbours. Tim auditioned, along with his best friend, Sam Clark, who eventually won the role of Ringo Brown. During the competition he caught the
attention of Neighbours' casting director Jan Russ and she later cast Tim in the guest role of Fox, a figment of Paul Robinson's imagination during his brain tumour, in 2007.
Tim continued his steady climb up the Australian entertainment ladder with a guest role in Nine Network's gangland drama Underbelly, and was then cast in ABC 's drama Bed of Roses. Tim went on to a supporting role opposite Oscar
nominated actress, Jacki Weaver, in the critically acclaimed Animal Kingdom, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010.
Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Tim landed his first lead role in the independent feature Liars All, playing footballer Billy. Tim also got the lead in Devil May Cry, a motion capture video game feature. In late 2011,
Tim received his first U.S. recurring television role on the ABC series Once Upon a Time, playing Prince Thomas which then led to a recurring role on The CW's The Secret Circle playing the role of Grant. Tim’s career moved to film
when he took lead roles in horror film Chasing the Devil and Australian movie Lemon Tree Passage.
In April 2014, it was confirmed that Tim had re-joined the cast of Neighbours in the regular role of Daniel Robinson, son of iconic couple Scott and Charlene. The identity of Daniel's portrayer had been kept secret until a
few weeks before his on-screen debut. Tim then made his first appearance as Daniel on Australian screens on April 29th 2014.
