You might recognize a fresh-faced Justin Prentice as intern Brad from the fourth season of iCarly when he was a relative novice, or from Glee, where he played Darrell, or maybe you recognize him as the rich, narcissistic, and remorseless sociopath, Bryce Walker, from the Netflix teen drama 13 Reasons Why.
Regardless of where you might've heard of him, Justin has truly come into his own as a versatile actor. And he is just 25 years old!
Here are seven facts about the Tennessee-native fans of 13 Reasons Why love to hate: Justin Prentice.
Prentice plays the main antagonist, Bryce Walker, in the Netflix teen drama series, 13 Reasons Why. His se*ual assault of Katherine Langford's character, Hannah Baker, is the final catalyst that sets the events of the series in motion.
He appeared in 39 episodes of the show through three seasons and came into his own as the rich narcissistic villain.
Justin was in a relationship with the German model and actress, Annika Pampel. Their Instagram used to be littered with posts of the two lovebirds.
These days, however, they have not been seen together, prompting fans to speculate that their relationship has ended for good. No one knows the full extent of the truth but the involved parties.
It was 2011- Justin was a fresh-faced novice to the acting industry when he landed the role of Brad in the Nickelodeon teen sitcom, iCarly. Justin appeared in two episodes of the fourth season of the sitcom as Brad- the aspiring intern looking for a gig with iCarly. Through his outgoing personality and likable nature, he was able to land the internship gig.
Justin also appeared in two episodes of the musical comedy series, Glee, in 2015. He played Darrell in the sixth season of the show and played the boyfriend of Lauren Potter's character, Becky.
Despite playing the hated antagonist in 13 Reasons Why, Justin's popularity has not faltered in the slightest.
His Instagram account under the handle @justin.prentice has amassed an impressive following of 1.9 million.
Despite playing a teenager in 13 Reasons Why, Justin is much older. He was born Justin Wright Prentice on March 25, 1994. The Tennessee native was 23 when he landed the role of Bryce Walker.
But he looked older in the show, and while some of it can be attributed to his hulking figure, most of it had to do with his actual age being much older.
Justin has been a full-time actor since 2010, and what he lacks in experience, he makes up for in dedication.
He is estimated to be worth $3 million. The bulk of his wealth comes from his main role as the antagonist in 13 Reasons Why. It is reported that for his per-episode appearance in the third season of the popular Netflix teen drama, he was being paid $135k. Add to that the fact that the third season has thirteen episodes and his earnings from the previous seasons were not shabby either and Justin is a bona fide millionaire!
