You might not know him yet, but watch out for actor Pierson Fode who hails from the great state of Washington. As you’ll see in our interview, he may be young, but he’s wise beyond his years. In October, he has a role in a new HBO series from Stephen Merchant called “Hello Ladies,” and will also be starring in “Indigenous,” a horror movie from the producers of “Sin City.” Right now, though, Pierson is making headlines for his upcoming romantic comedy “Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List” with Victoria Justice, who starred in the Nickelodeon series “Victorious.” Watch out for one good movie. It’s being made by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, who did “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist.”
Check out our interview with Pierson below:
Pierson defines a good guy as being “a guy that’s honorable, considerate, loves well, is responsible for his actions, and takes care of those people around him that he cares about and even those people he doesn’t care about.” If you want to be a good guy, it all revolves around being close to good people you aspire to be like. Pierson goes on to say, when you find people who build you up, “latch onto them and create a community for yourself that feeds you, while at the same time you can pour back into it.”
Pierson also defines a good guy as “being a man of your word.” When you make a commitment, follow through, even if something better might pop up. Even in a big town like Hollywood, your reputation will follow you.
Pierson wants to make a difference in the world, and he believes acting is the gift he was given to use for that purpose. While you may see him playing the occasional bad guy role, behind the acting is a man of strong character.
