Occupation Film, television actor

Aidan Gould (born February 26, 1997) is an American child actor. He is the brother of Nolan Gould.



His career began as early as 2001; at age four he was considered for We Were Soldiers, but instead made his debut in a television commercial.[1] In 2008, he starred in the 2008 movie Julia[2] opposite Tilda Swinton.[3][4] The movie was entered in the 2008 Berlinale; one German critic called Gould's performance "impressive" ("beeindruckend"),[5] and another said Gould's performance was "uncannily capable" ("unheimlich gekönnt").[6] Matthew Turner of View London called Aidan's performance a "remarkable job,"[7] and Amber Wilkinson of Eye for Film remarked, "Gould invests Tom with sufficient reticence."[8] After Julia, Gould played "Young Evan" in the 2009 Mark Poisella comedy Dynamite Swine.

Personal life

When 8 years old, Aidan was already an experienced mountaineer who had climbed the Cascades, the Alps and the Himalayas. In 2005 he accompanied his family on a four-month climbing and hiking vacation that culminated in his climbing the 20,300-foot Island Peak in the Himalayas in November. Previous to this, he and his father reached the peak of 10,400-foot Hausstock and 13,400-foot Monch in the Alps, and the 17,200-foot Awi Peak near Everest. When asked about the toughest part of his climbs, Aidan referred to a 45-degree face of rock and ice on Haustock, stating "It’s the worse 3,000 feet I’ve ever done".[9]
