Meet 'Tiny Pretty Things' Star Josh Pyman With 10 Fun Facts - Exclusive!

Josh Pyman is one actor we definitely wanted to get to know more about!

The Australian actor currently stars as Dev Ranaweera in the Netflix ballet series Tiny Pretty Things.

Dev is a love interest to one of the lead dancers, Shane (Brennan Clost), and he’s also battling with his own sexuality and where his morals lie.

If you didn’t know, Tiny Pretty Things is based off the book of the same name by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton, and set in the world of an elite ballet academy and charts the rise and fall of young adults who live far from their homes, each standing on the verge of greatness or ruin.

“Dev is a complicated guy. He’s at an age where he’s achieving so much and hasn’t really had the time to figure out who he is yet,” Josh shared about his character with RUSSH magazine. “For myself as an actor, it’s always a gift to play roles that people identify with and can be inspired by. As the series progresses, you go on this slow journey of self-discovery with Dev. I really enjoyed going on that journey with him, and working him out in the process.
