Brett Dier, a Canadian actor in L.A known for his role as Michael on Jane the Virgin takes fourteen-year-old Mohawk teen Lollay from Akwesasne on the adventure of a lifetime as they become aliens on this week’s episode of THAT’S AWSM! Oh – and we take a trip to Los Angeles, California!! These two goof balls share a lot of laughs as they both impersonate some of their favorite comedic actors with performances good enough for the Oscars. And they may even learn to do some surfing! If they can stop laughing that is…. Tune in to find out what’s so funny and to see if they get mistaken for little green men!
Fun factOnce did stand-up comedy!
You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone and Delmer & Marta, or you may have heard that he’s produced a few films and web series himself, but it’s time to get to know DARCY WAITE as host of That’s AWSM! Outgoing, sporty, goofy, warm, and entertaining, Darcy is down to try any and all of our AWSM activities… unfortunately he doesn’t often get to! He can recite every single line from every Will Ferrell movie ever made, and will only drink coffee from Tim Horton’s, but there is nothing he loves more than meeting teens from communities all over Canada and helping them live their best AWSM lives – which makes him the perfect guy for the job!
Lollay is a fourteen year old Mohawk from Akwesasne. His greatest dream in life is to become an actor and to be the first Indigenous person to win an Oscar for acting… based on what we’ve seen, we think we can do it! Lollay has the soul of an explorer and went on a six month driving trip with his family across the United States. While he was travelling he got to meet people from many different nations, including the Navajo people. He cites this as a real learning experience and is super happy his family was able to share the experience!
Fun factHe has over 10,000 Pokemon cards!
Brett Dier is a force to be reckoned with. He is the actor who portrayed Michael on Jane the Virgin and will be starring in the new ABC comedy called Schooled! If you’ve seen his social media accounts then you know that he also a great improviser and a very goofy dude! He also believes in the paranormal and won’t say no to a little ghost hunting or even alien hunting… But as someone who was born on Valentine’s Day he’s a natural born romantic with a penchant for meditating to keep stress at bay, especially when he’s on set!
