‘Outer Banks’ Star Chase Stokes & ‘Hollywood’ Lead Jeremy Pope Are BFFs IRL So Freak Out Accordingly
We’re frothing these new Netflix shows that are dropping seemingly every day.
Tiger King? Old news. We’re now bingeing Outer Banks and Hollywood, and get this: their lead actors, who are having simultaneous big breaks, were mates back in high school.
How’s that for a major coincidence?
true or false? @hichasestokes & I have known each other since middle school. same graduating class in high school. & somehow managed to drop our @netflix shows 2 weeks apart which are both in the Top 10 worldwide 🤯 I am so grateful to be on this journey alongside my childhood friend. will proudly run any and all of his fan accounts. hit me up.let me know. _ flip upside down for correct answer : ǝnɹʇ
Jeremy Pope, who plays Archie on Hollywood, shared a little homage to his classmate Chase Stokes of Outer Banks, telling his followers he’s “grateful to be on this journey alongside [his] childhood friend”.
Both of their shows are trending worldwide in the Top 10 on Netflix this week and dropped just two weeks apart. W I L D.
Jeremy’s Insta post wasn’t the first time we heard about their simultaneous comeuppance.
Chase told Refinery29 earlier this year about his friend’s big break.
“I [was in a] weird place where, before Outer Banks happened, I was like broke on my last literal dollar," he said. "In that time I have made this crazy group of friends, and my best friend from high school Jeremy Pope is the lead of the new Ryan Murphy series Hollywood."
From attending middle school together, to graduating from Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Florida (you can read all the facts about Chase here), it’s a long way from home for these two and we’re glad they’ve got each other to share this experience with.
For Chase, his Netflix show isn’t his first TV stint – he’s also appeared in Stranger Things and Tell Me Your Secret. But for Jeremy, it’s his small screen debut having come from a Broadway theatre background, even being nominated for a Tony Award for his role in Ain’t Too Proud.
Props to these two for hitting the big time. Sounds like they deserve every piece of success they’re getting.
