American actress and comedian Nasim Pedrad will be playing a 14- year old Persian boy who tries really hard to fit in and become popular in the newly aired TBS series Chad

39- Year- Old Actress Playing A Character of A 14- Year- Old Boy 

The TBS series Chad consists of a journey of a Persian 14-year-old boy who goes through awkward instances to become popular on his high school. Nasim's character Chad is willing to do anything from compromising his relationship with his family and friends to lie constantly in order to achieve his goal. 

During an interview, Pedrad expresses how she loves playing her character and feels that it is a really cool experiment to portray coming-of-age while being distant from that age. 

"I really just wanted to create a character that I could have a lot of fun playing... Once I cracked the character and felt like he was making me laugh... But beyond the character feeling fun to play, I just thought it would be a really cool experiment to tell a coming-of-age story where the teenager at the center of it is played by an adult who’s in on the joke and has some distance from that time in our lives..."

She also adds that the story will be more comedy-focused and less sad if the character is played by an adult rather than a teenage boy facing some funny and heartbreaking moments. 

"I thought you could push the comedy so much further potentially if you had an adult playing Chad because funny moments get to be funnier and less sad if you’re just sitting there watching an Iranian child suffering through some of these heartbreaking moments, but rather an adult who has some distance from it. When I felt like it could enrich the comedic performance and the comedic sensibility of the story, that was really exciting to me and felt like worth exploring." 

Apart from starring in the series as the main character- Chad, Pedrad also directed, created, and wrote the show. Further, the show aired its season 1's first episode on April 06, 2021, and the season's end episode on May 25, 2021.
