Career

Gould's acting career began when he was one year old. He had small roles in the late 1990s and early 2000s on many television shows that were popular at the time. At age seven, he won the eponymous role in Finding Nemo. He then played David Collins in the remake of the soap opera Dark Shadows, but the pilot episode was rejected by The WB.
