People of Charlotte, please meet a talented and big-hearted Charlottean, Pierce Pope! Pierce has been acting, modeling, singing, and volunteering for as long as he can remember. While being cast in regional and national commercials for NASCAR, Volkswagen, Power Rangers, Shell, Napa, and more, Pierce has also had roles in film and walked numerous runways. And he is also a full-time kid!
Now, let's get to know his story!
You're one of the lucky ones, following your heart from a young age. Tell us more!
How else might the community know you?
Some people know me as a professional kid actor, some people may know me as an influencer (through Rookie USA or as an Autism Charlotte influencer), and some know me as just a good friend—I hope everyone agrees with me.
Where does your motivation to be all you can be come from?
The reason I am an actor and want to be a director is so I can tell powerful stories, but also so I can help change the world to make it a better place.
What have you been up to during quaratine?
I have been raising awareness during COVID by donating to Bags of Hope. The organization donates to kids and families without food in the Lake Norman area. If you have a charity or something cool for me to check out or help with, let me know!
Your Instagram is awesome. Would you like to share your account with the people of Charlotte?
We know you have a big heart, especially for community matters. Is there anything else that you would like to share?
I hope this year will bring better equality despite our challenges and tragedies this year. For as long as I can remember, I have been really trying to bring people together no matter the situation. Hopefully, this year I can learn more and spread ideas on how we can band together instead of pushing each other apart...while handling the actor and kid life in between.
