Although he is now relatively unknown, WAAPA graduate Harrison Pierce is told to become famous in business.
The 23-year-old up-and-coming actor was selected as one of only 10 actors in the world and was the first Australian to be accepted by the coveted Warner Bros. Television actor in the 2022 training program.
The program is open to graduation classes from well-known drama schools such as NIDA, The Juilliard School, RADA, and Guild Hall School, and Harrison was one of 6,800 applicants.
“The number of people who have contacted me, like the producer of the casting director, is incredible,” Harrison told AAA.
Harrison from the Central Coast, New South Wales, said he moved to Perth three years ago to learn acting and was encouraged to see his efforts, including countless audition tapes, pay off.
The amount of hard work behind the scenes, it’s not like one audition you send out, it’s three years of training. .. .. It’s really great to see my efforts pay off, “he said.
“I made about 70 or 80 practice tapes throughout the year.”
As part of the program, Harrison will have the opportunity to contact the top Warner Bros. producers. This is the production company for the most watched shows today, including the Emmy Award-winning series Ted Lasso.
“The Warner Bros. Casting team was great at providing us with contact information and saying,’Ask me anytime.'”
Harrison said several projects are already underway, including the story of the coming-of-age ceremony in Australia.
“I and my friends are writing feature films now that we want to get funding,” he said.
He hopes to combine acting with his other passions of surfing in the future.
