Pietie Beyers is a South African actor and filmmaker best known for his starring role as Dr Deon Visser in the kykNET soapie Binnelanders.

He is the son of actress Susanne Beyers.

He matriculated from Hoërskool Jan van Riebeeck in Cape Town in 2006 and later attended The University of Stellenbosch, graduating in 2012 with an Honours degree in Drama.

Pietie landed his first television acting role in his final year of high school, when he was cast as the young version of Zatopek van Heerden (the older version was played by Neil Sandilands) in the kykNET drama series Orion.

The series, which premiered on 11 July, 2006, is based on Deon Meyer's book of the same name and tells the story of an explosive love triangle set against the backdrop of a serial killer investigation.

His next television role was a guest turn in an episode of the kykNET drama series Vloeksteen (Unpolished Diamond), appearing in Season 1, Episode 3 (which aired on 1 May, 2012).

The following year he had another guest starring role, this time in the kykNET crime anthology murder mystery series Die Boland Moorde (The Boland Murders).
