At an early age Eddie moved to New York where she garnered many theatrical roles. From 1989 -1992 Daniels was a featured dancer on the hit show Club MTV with Downtown Julie Brown.


Daniels first garnered international attention from the Film Community in 1992 with her turn as Jersey Girl in Abel Ferarra's Bad Lieutenant (1992). Her scene with Harvey Keitel was a hit at the Cannes Film Festival and garnered great reviews.


Variety Cannes Fest Review May 4, 1992 - "Even more impressive is a lengthy scene that could become a staple for acting classes in years to come, akin to the Brando-Steiger backseat "Palookaville" conversation in "On the Waterfront." Keitel stops two young sisters (Eddie Daniels, Bianca Bakija) from Jersey driving in the rain and harrasses them while standing outside their car window. His tour de force, seemingly improvised method acting is matched against their unaffected, nervous naturalism. Sexual content of this scene is suggested rather than explicit but proves quite startling." - Lawrence Cohn


Film Comment Magazine New Faces "Eddie Daniels & Bianca Bakija their ensemble portrait of two Jersey girls in deep shit is definitive. Subjected to harrowing sexual degradation by Harvey Keitel, their reactions and responses are instinctive and totally spontaneous, all trace of performance or playing a part stripped away along with their dignity. Truly organic acting - in all senses of the phrase." - Gavin Smith


Over the next few years, she won further critical support and many all pro reviews for her role as Marty in Matthew Harrison's Rhythm Thief (1994), and as Dove in Central Standard Time (1997) for which she was nominated Best New Actress Slamdance 1997 by Film Threat
