Shaun of the Dead, Into the Badlands, Paul, Hot Fuzz
We are excited to announce that Nick Frost will be joining us at EM-Con Nottingham.
British actor, writer, director and producer Nick Frost was recently seen in season 3 of INTO THE BADLANDS, one of AMC’s most popular shows. In his role as Bajie, Nick has received critical acclaim with his performance described as ‘a joy to behold’.
Last year Nick starred as Dr Ian Glennis in the Sky Atlantic series SICK NOTE, alongside Rupert Grint and Don Johnson. A second season of the comedy, about a young man whose lie about a medical misdiagnosis spirals out of control, will air later this year. Lindsey Lohan is set to join the cast.
Next year Nick will star in FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY, a biographical comedy about a former wrestler whose children dream of one day joining World Wrestling Entertainment. Written and directed by Stephen Merchant, Nick stars alongside Dwayne Johnson, Lena Heady and Vince Vaughn.
Nick is best known for 2004 cult zombie film SHAUN OF THE DEAD, starring opposite Simon Pegg. Nick and Simon teamed up again for the hugely successful hit comedy HOT FUZZ (2007) and rounded off ‘The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy’ in 2013 with THE WORLD’S END.
They teamed up again in 2011 for sci-fi comedy PAUL, which debuted at the top of the UK box office and became an international hit.
In 2011 Nick also appeared as Ron in Joe Cornish’s award-winning ATTACK THE BLOCK, before working as an executive producer on CUBAN FURY, based on an original idea from Nick about a shabby, down-on-his luck man who reignites his long-dormant passion for salsa dancing.
Nick came to prominence as the gun-mad character Mike Watt in the award-winning Channel 4 sitcom SPACED (1999). His further television credits include the BBC’s adaptation of Martin Amis’ best-seller MONEY (2010), Channel 4 sitcom BLACK BOOKS (2000) with Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey, and Channel 5 series DANGER! 50,000 VOLTS! (2002), which he hosted. In 2006, Nick led the cast of HYPERDRIVE, a sci-fi comedy series for BBC Two, as well as starring in two seasons of the BBC sketch-comedy series, MAN STROKE WOMAN (2005). In Spring 2014, Nick starred in Sky Atlantic HD’s six-episode comedy series, MR SLOANE, from writer/director Robert B. Weide. December 2014 saw Nick guest-star in BBC’s DR. WHO Christmas Special ‘LAST CHRISTMAS’, as ‘badass Santa’, drawing 6.4 million viewers.
Nick’s extensive film credits include 2018 action hit TOMB RAIDER, alongside Alicia Vikander and Dominic West; Julian Jarrold’s KINKY BOOTS (2005); Nick Moore’s WILD CHILD (2008); quirky fantasy-romance PENELOPE (2006); and Richard Curtis’s THE BOAT THAT ROCKED (2009); blockbusters SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (2012) and sequel THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’S WAR (2016). Nick has leant his voice talents to Peter Jackson’s epic motion-capture feature, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN (2011), the fourth instalment of the ICE AGE franchise, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT (2012) and the BAFTA-nominated THE BOXTROLLS.
