Daviss Worked Other Jobs Before Outer Banks

At the young age of 17,  Jonathan Daviss moved from Texas to Los Angeles by himself to pursue acting as a career. He lived with a friend, sleeping on the couch while looking for his acting break.

He was booking minor roles in TV movies and shows, while working other jobs to pay the bills. Right before being cast for Outer Banks, Daviss was a sales associate at Saks Off 5th and also at a BIRD store, where he charged scooters.

The singer and actor landed his first major role in Outer Banks. He plays Pope, the smartest of the Pogues. His intelligence is cause for pressure on him to pick academics over his friends. But Daviss wins hearts when he chooses his friends over a scholarship, though nearly ruining his fragile relationship with his father.

The pressure Pope feels is what made Daviss relate to his character the most.

“You can see how it tears him; all his decisions had to be made based on getting out of the system. His whole tribe had to ‘work work work.’ I think he values his friends more,” the young actor said.
