TV and film actor Thomas Middleditch tells the Toronto Star that he grew up “weird and shy” in Nelson in a profile published this month.

Middleditch, 33, who plays a programmer on the HBO series Silicon Valley, told writer Ashley Jude Collie that he was bullied as a kid.

“I don’t hate anyone or want to rub their faces in it,” he said. ‘OK, maybe it would be a little fun: ‘How do you like me now?’ Nelson is a bit of an artsy town yet, as small as it is, it has a theatre community. I got into performing fairly young and went from, like, a shy kid to a total weirdo.”

Middleditch lived, studied, and worked in Toronto, Chicago, and New York. He now lives in Los Angeles.
