He hasn’t named his father, but was born to the Danish actress and writer Mickey Faerch, who is known for her appearances in the TV series “American Horror Story,” the 2011 film “Grand Theft Auto V,” and the 2019 documentary film “Memory: The Origins of Alien.” He is of Danish and Canadian roots, and was raised in Canada and the US. His mother often encouraged him to pursue a career in the entertainment industry; he wrote a 15-page pirate/vampire script entitled “Duel” when he was a child.

Faerch has appeared in several theatrical productions of plays such as “The Grapes of Wrath” in which he portrayed Winfield. He also played young Herlald in the play “Marat/Sade” (“The Persecution and assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade”), and also played the messenger in “Waiting for Godot.” Faerch has appeared in various Shakespeare productions, such as “Hamlet,” “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” and “Coriolanus.” Moreover, he performed in the French theatrical production of “L’Impromptu de Théophile.”
Film and TV Appearances
Faerch made his film debut playing a minor role in the film “Seafood Heaven”, which was followed by other minor roles in “A Bullet Beyond Redemption” and “Coming to Town” in 2005 and 2006 respectively. He rose to prominence at the age of 10, when he was cast as the murderous young Michael Myers in the 2007 slasher movie “Halloween,” which was the ninth installment of the same named franchise, and a remake of the eponymous 1978 film. In this film, the soft, sweet, and feminine-looking Myers delivers a chilling performance with his ruthless actions. Initially, the actor was set to reprise his role in the film’s sequel in 2009, but it was given to Chase Wright Vanek because he’d grown taller.
In 2008, Faerch portrayed Michel in the Peter Berg-directed superhero comedy movie “Hancock”; The hit film stars Jason Bateman, Charlize Theron, and Will Smith who plays Hancock, a shabby superhero who protects Los Angeles citizens, but leaves behind unbearable collateral damage whenever he answers a distress call. He later appeared alongside his mother in the thriller “Sebastian” in 2010.
In 2016, he voiced a French bully in the action-thriller movie “The Accountant,” which starred Ben Affleck, J.K. Simmons and Anna Kendrick, and 2017 saw him appear in the episode “Premature Theories” of the Netflix mockumentary series “American Vandal.”
Daeg’s next appearances were in an episode of the Starz comedy series “Now Apocalypse” in 2019, and the Peacock crime-drama “The Bay” in 2020. His most recent appearances were in the tenth season of “American Horror Story” in 2021, and in the episode “Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door” of Sam Levinson’s teen drama TV series “Euphoria” in 2022, sharing the screen with Zendaya, Angus Cloud and Maude Apatow in the HBO teen drama series.
In 2017, GreatDaeg appeared in the official video for the song “Fun” in the studio album “Pollinator” by the American rock band “Blondie.” GreatDaeg released his first album “Stunt from the 6” on 16 July 2018, made up of several songs including “Finger Sticky” and “Stunt.” In 2019, he released another album “Albino Animals”, and in 2020 several other albums and EPs, such as “The Wicked Wicked West Album,” “Quarantine,” and “Dirty Deeds.” He also released several other albums in 2022, including “DAGR,” which is made up of the singles “Frig (Guider),” “Plating Seeds (Healing),” and several more.
