Dani is portrayed by Marla Sokoloff.


Dani is Mike's brief girlfriend, having met each other in a support group for alcoholics. She is very nice, supportive, and understanding when it comes to things. She supports Brandon and Callie's relationship, often giving him advice. In Adoption Day, she came to the apartment to help a drunk Brandon who was reeling from Callie leaving him. However, when putting him to bed, she instead ends up sleeping with him while he was drunk and underage.

She tries to convince Brandon not to say anything about their one night stand to Mike, saying that she loves him too much and it would hurt him. She even blames Brandon himself for it, and says it would throw Mike off of his sobriety and ruin him. After being eaten with guilt, however, he eventually told his mothers and Mike despite the risks. Consequently, she was arrested for statutory rape in The Longest Day.
