Daniel MacPherson's decamping to LA

DANIEL MacPherson is joining the exodus of Australian actors trying their luck in Hollywood. The Channel Seven golden boy will move to Los Angeles in September, when his contract expires with the TV network.

MacPherson, 28, will quit police drama City Homicide, but he will still co-host this year's season of Dancing with the Stars.

The Melbourne-based actor said he wants to continue working on the popular dance contest by flying back and forth from LA.

"I also have a wonderful relationship with Seven, beyond September I'd like to think there's more work between us," he told The Sunday Telegraph.

MacPherson said his move would be made easier because many of his mates, including Australian actors Chris Egan, Chris Hemsworth and Jesse Spencer, live in LA.

"One of my long-term goals has been to head to the States and my mantra has always been that I wouldn't head over there until I'm 100 per cent ready," MacPherson said.

MacPherson has been visiting LA with manager Mark Morrissey. Last year, he secured representation by agency ICM, who represent Hollywood heavyweights, including Val Kilmer, Diane Kruger and Danny Glover.
