Danger Force launches tonight.

Christina Jeter

Danger Force is a spinoff of the hit show Henry Danger and follows four new superheroes-in-training as they learn to control their powers and stop crime in Swellview. 

In Danger Force, four kids–Chapa (Havan Flores), Miles (Terrence Little Gardenhigh), Mika (Dana Heath) and Bose (Luca Luhan)–are recruited to attend Swellview Academy for the Gifted (SW.A.G. for short), a school conceived by Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) and brought to life by Schwoz (Michael D. Cohen), after having been accidentally mutated in the fight to save Swellview. While there, the kids must learn to harness their frequently troublesome and sometimes uncontrollable superpowers as they begin to fight crime. Despite the dangerous circumstances of their new lives, the superheroes must keep their real identities a secret from both from their families and the villains who are out to destroy them.

Terrence Little Gardenhigh stars as Miles, a superhero-in-training and member of the Danger Force. Miles is cool and confident, and believes that he’s destined for greatness. He’s often philosophical in his thoughts and what he says.

Born in North Carolina and raised in Olympia, WA, Little Gardenhigh began his career at the age of eight doing commercials for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Since then he has gone on to act in episodes of Henry Danger (Nickelodeon), Just Roll with It (Disney Channel) and Speechless (ABC), and will star in the upcoming film Coffee & Kareem (Netflix). He was discovered at the International Modeling and Talent Association where he won the Male Pre-Teen Actor of the Year Award. When not acting, he enjoys spending time with his family and playing sports like basketball and football.

What made you want to become part of the cast?

I have been watching Henry Danger for years and I love the show. Just to know I would be a part of something so amazing was a dream come true. What kid could turn down seeing the man cave and pressing all the buttons?

Why do you feel fans will enjoy the spin-off? 

Because it still gives you the feel of Henry Danger.  There definitely more superheroes and some of the funniest characters will still be on the show like Captain Man and Schwoz. 

Who is your favorite superhero?

Black Panther because he is super-fast and the moves he makes when he lands and jumps are crazy. I would love to be in a movie like that and perform my own stunts. 

How can the audience relate to the characters in their everyday life?

The characters are real kids that are learning about life, going through ups and downs like everyone else, but they have each other to depend on. They still have to go to school, there is just a slight twist.

When do you think the show will get a full length featured movie?

That would be soooooo dope. Hopefully next year! We’ll see!

Dana Heath stars as Mika, a superhero-in-training and member of the Danger Force. Mika is a relentless optimist who’s highly competitive and always speaks what’s on her mind, even when her thoughts shouldn’t be said aloud.

Originally from Miami Beach, FL, Heath got her start in entertainment at four years old as a model, and soon after that started acting in theatre and discovered her love for the stage. Since then, she has acted in episodes of Henry Danger (Nickelodeon), PEN15 (Hulu) and Sydney to the Max (Disney Channel), as well as voiced characters in Fancy Nancy (Disney Junior) and WellieWishers (Amazon Prime). When not acting, Heath loves to paint, sing, play with her dog Bam-Bam and find sea shells to add to her already-impressive collection.

What made you want to become part of the cast?

I wanted to be a part of the cast because of the hilarious writing, and the fact that it’s a spinoff of an amazing show. I am very grateful to be a part of it!

Why do you feel fans will enjoy the spin off?

I think fans will enjoy the spinoff because of the perfect balance of action and comedy, but also because of the underlying message of teamwork within the show.

Who is your favorite superhero?

My favorite superhero is Batman because of his strength, Independence and his character development.

How can the audience relate to the characters in their everyday life?

The audience can relate to the characters because they are not perfect and they work on their weaknesses to better themselves.

When do you think the show will get a full length featured movie?

I hope we get a movie, I mean, how cool would that be!
Danger Force. Premiering Saturday, March 28, at 8pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
