Actor, voice artist and writer, Pietie Beyers graduated with distinction in his acting and creative writing practicals. He completed his honours in Drama (B.Dram) at the University of Stellenbosch in 2011.
Pietie set out to be an actor. At school he played Zatopek van Heerden in kykNET’s Orion and at University he already worked in professional theatre like Marthinus Basson’s Antony and Cleopatra at Maynardville. Immediately after studying, Pietie was poached by the advertising world and borrowed for four years, working as a copywriter, presenter, director, producer and voice artist. For two years, Pietie was the permanent voice for Varsgedruk on kykNET and also did English voice work for Musica, Volkswagen, Sanlam and Channel 24. Pietie knows voice. His Afrikaans is smooth as silk.
In 2016, Pietie started auditioning and soon got the role of the hilariously endearing John in KykNET’s Die Boekklub. While working at the ad agency, he also made time to enjoy the following roles: Bam in Beskermhere (winner of best actor in a shortfilm at kykNET Silwerskermfees 2013), Christiaan in Lien se Lankstaanskoene feature film, Dandré in Sy Klink soos Lente (2017) feature film, Fred in Onder die tafel, Pietie in Balbesit feature film, Christiaan in Vloeksteen and Francois in Die Boland Moorde. Pietie played another John, this time the lead actor in Schweppes Israel’s hugely popular 2015 campaign “Here’s to being a grown-up”.
In 2016 he (finally!) decided to resign from writing ads and started acting full time. In the week after he resigned, he auditioned and landed a year contract on Binnelanders as the beloved Doctor Deon Visser. Pietie and his girlfriend (a real doctor) moved to Johannesburg. In April 2017, as the audience fell in love with Doctor Deon, Pietie signed with Viclectic.
Pietie is ready to fly.
