British-born and educated, Nicholas studied classical singing, first at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester and then at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, Holland.
He moved to Melbourne in 2007 and started acting in Independent Theatre, most notably; Guy Burgess in An Englishman Abroad by Alan Bennett, which also earned him two best-actor awards, Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd for Altona Theatre, and a touring production of Porcelain by Chay Yew, directed by Beng Oh which was nominated for a Green Room award.
After moving to Sydney in 2014, Nick turned his attention to TV and film and has created numerous roles, from evil vampires and slimy blackmailers to eccentric Dukes and paranoid Dads.
Notable film roles include; Nazi Officer in Hiding Places by Darren Vukasinovic (Bronze Palm Award at the Mexico International Film Festival 2014), Narrator in Toby and the Runaway Kite by Dana Stockton (best animated film and best voice over at the Los Angeles New Wave International Film Festival 2013) and more recently the Duke in Magic by G.K. Chesterton and adapted by Elvis Joseph due for release later this year on Amazon and iTunes.
