Though he hasn’t appeared in the role of Thomas in over a year, actor Pierson Fodé remains a firm fan favorite and he has a special milestone to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Pierson Fode
That’s because he was born on November 6, 1991, in Moses Lake, Washington, which means that this talented performer is turning 28 years old today! Having long known he was destined for the stage and screen, Fodé founded his own production company — Pierced Productions — when he was just 13 years old through in which he produced, wrote, directed, and starred in 20 short films.
After obtaining his Associate of Arts degree, Fodé landed representation through Seattle Talent before signing with Wilhelmina Models. During his modeling days, Fodé received several awards, including Best Fashion Print Phots and Star of the Year.
Fodé’s first professional acting assignment was an episode of the Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly, which was quickly followed by the online serial Runaways (for which he received an award), the television film Wrath of God: Confrontation, and the HBO comedy series Hello Ladies.
Between 2013 and 2014 he starred in the online series Storytellers as Blazer. In 2014, he played the lead role in the horror film Indigenous and the following year, he acted opposite Victoria Justice in the critically acclaimed Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List. He also appeared in five episodes of the Disney sitcom Jessie as Brooks Wentworth III.

On July 27, 2015, Fodé debuted on the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful as legacy character Thomas Forrester. He would remain with the soap for a little over two years before exiting in September of 2017 — though he did indulge in a return engagement between March 9 and April 5, 2018.
During his time with the program, Fodé was nominated for two consecutive Daytime Emmy Awards in the category of Outstanding Younger Actor (2016 and 2017).
Since then, Fodé has appeared in episodes of Hit the Floor and Real Bros. of Simi Valley and three feature films — The Outcasts, MDMA, and It’s Time. In June of this year, he revealed on his official Instagram account that he has been undergoing treatment for severe brain trauma.
