Birth Name: Nicholas John Frost
Birthday: March 28, 1972
Birthplace: Romford, Essex, England
Originally from Essex, Nick is one of the new wave of British comic actors up and coming in both television and movies alike.
Nick left school at age 16 and joined the world of the working class. Falling in with what some would call the wrong crowd, he frequented many clubs and raves. A friend told him he needed to get away from this life before he ended up dead.
Heeding his friend's advice, Nick decided to leave his home and country and headed to Isreal to work in the Kibbutz. He quickly adapted to the strict work regimen and flourished. It was here that he discovered his love for painting. One of the jobs he had in the Kibbutz was at an art gallery, and the owner would let him use his supplies to paint. Nick enjoyed his time there very much.
Nick returned to England with a lady friend, and they worked at a mexican retaurant called Chiquito's in Cricklewood, North London. He was a world class waiter, entertaining guests as well as serving them. He held the restaurant record for his ability to spin an amazing 13 trays at one time. It was here, in 1993, that he met long time colleague and best mate, Simon Pegg.
Nick and Simon shared a flat off and on for over 8 years. Simon was an aspiring comic at the time, and in 1995 Nick decided to try stand-up comedy. He has said that he did about a dozen gigs in his short stand-up career, and about half of them were great, the other half, the worst experiences of his life.
Nick created the persona of roly-poly gun-mad Mike Watt to amuse Simon, who loved the character. Frustrated to see Nick's obvious talents as an actor going to waste, Simon incorporated the character of Mike into the world of Spaced, as Tim's ever faithful childhood friend. He then threatened Nick with a carving knife and said, "If you don't appear in our show, I'll cut your nuts up." How could Nick refuse?
Since filming both series of Spaced, Nick has become one of the UK's most sought after comedy actors. He has appeared in the Channel 4 sitcom Black Books with Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey, a television/internet collaboration called Free London and appeared in a commercial for Pizza Hut, directed by Spaced and Shaun of the Dead's Edgar Wright. He also co-starred in the feature films Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, as well as hosted two series of his own show for Channel 5: Danger! 50,000 Volts! and Danger! Incoming Attack!. He has also appeared briefly in Big Train as a builder, and alongside Matt Lucas, David Walliams and Reece Shearsmith in The Crazy Johnathans. As you can see, his career has been nothing but fried gold throughout.
- Aside from painting, Nick also enjoys cooking, and is an excellent chef.
