Having played Phillip Chancellor the third from 1986 – 1989, and also appearing briefly as his ghost in 2004, Thom Bierdz has since gone on to become a painter who puts his emotions onto paper and turns even the worst memory into something worth looking at! Not only have his paintings been displayed at many well-known galleries, Thom has on many occasions painted live for fans as a way to aid in numerous fundraising projects.
For those who’d like a deeper glimpse into all that the actor has conquered throughout his life and career, you’ll want to check out Thom’s book, Forgiving Troy, an Art-O-Biography that will make you grieve right along with Thom after hearing all he’s loved and lost.
