Little Guy Pearce:
Pearce was born in the English town of Ely, in the county of Cambridgeshire. His thick English and Australian accent lent his speech a distinct ring to it, keeping viewers in the loop whenever he’s on television. Stuart Pearce, his father, was a Royal New Zealand Air Force pilot and RAF test pilot, and Anne Cocking, his mother, was an English teacher. Pearce’s family moved to Geelong, Victoria, Australia, when he was three years old. While still at Geelong College, he made his first film appearance in Life and Study at University, a Victorian Vice Chancellors-funded film produced and directed by Peter Lane of Deakin University. Pearce, who was 17 at the time, portrayed a 21-year-old student.
Audio Visual Talents:
Not only is Guy Pearce dreamy on the screen, but he also has an angelic voice. Frank Howson, a director, producer, and writer, cast Pearce in his first three films, Heaven Tonight, Hunting, and Flynn, and paid for him to attend the premiere of Howson’s Hunting at the Cannes Film Festival in 1991. Pearce was brought to the attention of the international film industry through the accompanying Howson-funded publicity campaign. Music and songwriting have always been lifelong passions for him. Broken Bones, his debut album, was released in November 2014. In March 2015, Pearce starred in Neighbours 30th: The Stars Reunite, a documentary special celebrating the show’s 30th anniversary in Australia and the United Kingdom. In 2018, Pearce released The Nomad, his second studio album. Pearce appears in the music videos “Across the Night” by Australian band Silverchair and “Before I Fall to Pieces” by Razorlight. In addition, he appears in the video for Radiohead’s song “Follow Me Around.” His studio albums have both been regarded as timeless pieces of art in the Indie record list. The 6-minute long ballad ‘Say Goodbye’ is my personal favorite!
