Behind the Makeup…
TW: What colour are your eyes?
Nick. – Green
TW: What do you do to take care of your skin?

TW: What do you do to take care of your health?
Nick. – Eat heaps of fruit and veg – no meat. Take in lots of protein i.e. fish and nuts. Take daily vitamin supplements.
TW: Are you concerned about your looks given the business you are in?
Nick. – To a certain extent, but I am generally more concerned with the credibility of my performance. There’s no point looking good if people are distracted by your performance.
TW:Would you consider putting on or losing a lot of weight for a part?
Nick. – If the role truly warranted it. I wouldn’t do it just on a whim.
TW: Do you think that weight and looks should be important in the film business or do you think that there’s too much pressure put on actors to look a certain way?
Nick. – Of course weight and looks are important in a visual medium like film. The obsession with these things tends to come from places outside the industry iteself i.e. magazines that trade on having the latest beauty secrets of Hollywood.
If you actually look at those that have truly made it in the business, you find that few of them have made it solely because they look good. Rather they have used their true talent to maximise what opportunities did come their way.
