Nick Frost Biography

Nicholas John 'Nick' Frost (born 28.4.1972)
Nick Frost is an English actor, screenwriter and comedian most notable for his highly acclaimed work with Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg on the television series Spaced, and the 'Cornetto trilogy', consisting of multi-award winning Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the World's End.

Nick Frost: Childhood
Frost was born in Dagenham, East London to office furniture designers where he attended Beal High School. Frost became a waiter, whilst occasionally doing small time acting positions in corporate training videos such as 'Chris Carter and the Coverplan Challenge' and a Dixon's group sales video, in order to fulfil his acting ambitions.

Nick Frost: Acting Career
Despite only doing occasional acting positions and working as an extra on the television series Big Train, Nick Frost was cast on Simon Pegg's and Edgar Wrights highly acclaimed and notable television series, Spaced. The series followed two friends Tim (played by Simon Pegg) and Daisy (played by Jessica Hynes) as they pretend to be married in order to stay in the only apartment they can afford. Despite the show finishing after 2 series (even though a third series was reportedly considered) the cast and crew remained in contact and developed a professional working relationship.
Frost later worked alongside Dylan Moran, Tamsin Greig and Bill Bailey to appear in two episodes of Black Books, a comedy focusing on a book shop owner who hates his customers. Frost and Pegg collaborated again in 2004 to write and star in Danger! 50,000 Zombies a short spoof film based on Nick Frosts TV Series Danger! 50000 Volts. The short film focused purely on the subject of the living dead which inspired the release and writing of Shaun of the Dead.
Shaun of the Dead reunited Edgar Wright with the Frost/Pegg duo and received positive critical response. The film was described as a 'romantic zombie comedy' shortened to 'rom-zom-com' and made reference to and added humour to previous Zombie films such as Dawn of the Dead. The film also reunited Tamsin Greig and Dylan Moran whom Frost had previously worked with on Black Books. Shaun of the Dead was the beginning of what would later be referred to as the 'Three flavours Cornetto trilogy'. A trio of comedies connected via the flavour of Cornetto ice-cream. It is a reference to Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colours film trilogy.
Nick Frost continued to act in television films and short videos made with Pegg and Wright, often including co-stars from Shaun of the Dead. These videos were short comedies including: Funky Pete and Who would be Sean.
In 2005 Nick Frost was cast in Kinky Boots, a new project unrelated to his previous work. The film was displayed on the opening night of Sundance Film Festival and followed a drag queen that made an attempt to save a man from losing his shoe shop.
Frost continued to play small television series roles such as: Look around You, Dirty Tricks and Green Wing, before being cast alongside Simon Pegg in Hot Fuzz, A comedy about the Police/Fuzz written by previous friend and colleague Edgar Wright. The film was a commercial and critical success receiving $80,573,774 at the world wide box office.
Between 2005 and 2007, Frost starred on the 12 episode series Man Stroke Woman, a series of sketches in which the cast played multiple roles. The show finished after 2 series and Frost was cast alongside previous co-star Bill Nigh (Hot Fuzz) on the Boat That Rocked. The film won Best Picture at the Golden Capital Awards as well as receiving four other nominations.
In 2011 Frost starred and wrote his debut feature film alongside previous friend and co-star Simon Pegg. 'Paul' followed the journey of two nerds (Pegg and Frost) who encounter an Alien (voiced by comedian and actor Seth Rogen) as they made an attempt to get the alien back home. The film also starred Jason Bateman and Sigourney Weaver.
Frost continued to have supporting roles in Attack the Block and Snow White and the Huntsman before teaming up with an all star cast (including Pegg and Wright) in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. The film was directed by world famous and critically acclaimed director Steven Spielberg and Produced by Peter Jackson who had a cameo appearance in Hot Fuzz. The film was nominated for one Academy Award and received another 33 nominations in different festivals and award ceremonies.
The final instalment of the Cornetto trilogy is due for release 19th July and will feature Frost, Pegg, Wright and previous stars from Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead.

Nick Frost: Personal Life
Frost currently resides with his half-Swedish wife, executive Producer Christina in London who gave birth to a boy on 22nd June 2011.
Frost is also a well known supporter of West Ham United.
