How did He Start his Acting Career?

Royce Pierreson developed his passion for acting when he was 17. That was when he watched Marlon Brando‘s acting in the BBC One‘s Streetcar Named Desire and thought about doing what he does.

It’s all relative but I got into acting relatively late. When I was 17, I watched Streetcar Named Desire on BBC One. I watched what Marlon Brando did for 90 minutes and when the film finished I said to myself that’s who I want to be, not what I want to do but who I want to be. Then I realised I’m not Brando I’m my own person in this profession and set out on the path to discover, learn create and develop this love I had for acting.

Producer Credits

Besides his career as an actor, he is a producer as well. He has a production company called Another Method Productions. He has already produced a short movie named The Pie Shop.

I run a production company called Another Method Productions, and we have just signed a really exciting deal. I can’t talk about it much right now, but we have a plan to make a TV series that I think is going to be a real game changer. It explores issues of race. It is really exciting and we’re in the pre-production stages of that right now. And I am doing a lot of writing as well.

Wanted to be a Chef

Before developing his interest in acting, he thought of becoming a chef as he loves cooking very much.

I always wanted to do something where you are creating something from different components – I have always been drawn to things like that. I still enjoy cooking, but it’s usually very obscure stuff.

Tried Out for Dr. Who

Royce Pierreson, who portrayed Dr. Jamie Cole in Our Girl, once auditioned for Dr. Who but failed to get the role due to an awkward situation that occurred during the audition. While talking with The Italian Reve, he revealed that his trousers fell when he stood up to shake hands.

I was in the waiting room, my name gets called, I stand up to shake hands (back when it was allowed), my belt breaks, my trousers fall down, I manage to grab them with one hand as we make contact with the now awkward handshake. Did we say anything? Course not, we’re English. Did I get the job…have you ever seen me in “Dr. Who”?
