Up and coming actor Derrick de Villiers set to appear in the Disney+ series Turner & Hooch and feature film Snake Eyes in summer 2021
It is set to be an exciting summer for rising talent Derrick de Villiers who is appearing in both a new TV series and feature film production.
First up, Derrick plays the role of a rough around the edges prisoner in the Disney+ series Turner & Hooch, starring Josh Peck. In the series, U.S. Marshall Scott Turner (Peck) inherits an unruly dog named Hooch, who may become the partner he needs. Together, the duo, alongside the rest of the Turner family, discovers that his father’s death may not have been accidental. The new show, which is a revival of the 1989 film of the same name, will premiere on July 16, 2021.
Also in July, Derrick can be seen in the role of Ringmaster, the epitome of a hustler, in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. The feature film follows a lone fighter who is welcomed in and trained by an ancient Japanese ninja clan called the Arashikage, but finds his loyalties being tested when secrets from his past are revealed and he eventually goes on the path to become the hero known as “Snake Eyes”. The action spin-off from the G.I. Joe franchise, which stars Henry Goulding, premieres on July 23, 2021.
Derrick was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on such high-profile productions with talented and well-respected directors, casts and crews. He was able to not only gain valuable experience on-set, but also more knowledge of the craft from the seasoned professionals he worked alongside.
While Derrick knew from a young age that he wanted to be a performer, it wasn’t until he was diagnosed with a chronic illness that he altered his life path and was inspired to follow his passion and true purpose by pursuing his dreams.
From there, he attended Deb Podowski Acting Studio and trained under Kaaren de Zilva continuously for the last eight years.
Derrick grew up in the Lower Mainland. He currently resides in New Westminster.
