Pierce Gagnon (born July 25, 2005) is an American child actor, known for his roles in One Tree Hill, Looper, Wish I Was Here and Extant.

Personal life[edit]

Gagnon was born in Atlanta, Georgia.[2] He has three younger siblings, including his brother Steele. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California. He was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Career[edit]

After his film debut The Crazies, Gagnon played Logan Evans, the son of Clay Evans (Robert Buckley), in season 9 of the CW drama series One Tree Hill.

In January 2011, he was cast in the action thriller film Looper as Cid Harrington, a child with unusual telekinetic abilities, who becomes a warlord called the "Rainmaker". Rian Johnson said, "Looking back I'm kind of terrified that I hinged the success of the backend of the movie on finding someone like Pierce. It's really rare to find a kid who can do what he does. He would do three-page dialogue scenes with Emily [Blunt] and Joe [Gordon-Levitt] and hold his own against them all the way through."[3]

After voicing Tiago in Rio 2, the sequel to the 2011 film Rio,[4] Gagnon played Tucker Bloom, the son of Aidan (Zach Braff) and Sarah (Kate Hudson), in the comedy-drama film Wish I Was Here.[5] He then starred as Ethan Woods, the android son of Molly Woods (Halle Berry), in the CBS science fiction drama series Extant.[6] Gagnon was named one of the best actors under twenty years of age.[7]
