TriviaHe and his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, won Emmys for their portrayals of a married couple, Dr. and Mrs. Mark Craig, on the cult TV series "St. Elsewhere" (1982) in 1982. Nominated for a Tony as Supporting Actor in a Musical for his lead role of John Adams in the 1969 musical "1776." He could not be nominated for lead actor because he did not then have star billing (i.e., above the title). Adams is clearly the lead role in 1776 (1972), so Daniels declined the nomination. Elected president of Screen Actors Guild upsetting incumbent Richard Masur, as well as candidate Angel Tompkins who conjoined her two names to call herself "Angeltompkins" so she could be listed first on the ballot(!) The SAG president serves a 2-year term. [November 1999] One episode of "St. Elsewhere" (1982) called for Dr. and Mrs. Craig to visit Philadelphia. Inspired by returning to Independence Square, he sang a few lines of the song, "Sit Down, John" from 1776 (1972). The moment was included in the episode. Often plays members of the famous Adams family of Early American history. Has played John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams and their cousin Samuel Adams. Played George Feeny who was the principal and a teacher at John Adams High School on the TV show "Boy Meets World" (1993). This is yet another John Adams connection for Daniels, who has portrayed him many times. The characters that Daniels and his real-life wife, Bonnie Bartlett, played in "Boy Meets World" (1993) married each other in an episode of that series, just as they are in real life. Plays the husband of real-life wife Bonnie Bartlett on both "Boy Meets World" (1993) and "Touched by an Angel" (1994).
