Bio

Nick Frost is an English actor and comedian best known for his work with Simon Pegg.

Born in Essex, Frost worked as a waiter and appeared in corporate promotional videos such Chris Carter and The Coverplan Challenge, a Dixons group sales video, before gaining fame as Tim's Army-obsessed best friend Mike in the British comedy Spaced, which was written by Pegg and Jessica Stevenson and aired on Channel 4 for two seasons.

Although Frost wasn't an actor before this (though he had appeared in Pegg's first major comedy series, Big Train, as an extra on several occasions), he created the character of Mike to amuse Pegg, his flatmate at the time. Pegg liked it so much that he wrote the character into Spaced.

In 2001 Frost played a small role in an one-off episode of Victoria Wood's Acorn Antiques. This was a specially written episode shown during the series, The Sketch Show Story that Victoria narrated, in which Nick played an armed robber who 'shot dead' Acorn Antiques' most lovable character, Mrs Overall (Julie Walters).

In 2002, Frost wrote and presented a TV show called Danger! 50,000 Volts!, a spoof of the outdoors survival genre in which SAS experts or the like demonstrated how to improvise solutions to dangerous problems. In 2002, Frost also co-wrote and starred in The Sofa of Time with Matt King.

In 2004, Frost appeared in Shaun Of The Dead, a 'rom-zom-com' (romantic comedy, with zombies), written once again by Pegg along with Spaced director Edgar Wright.

The film follows the life of Shaun, a disaffected store clerk who tries to win back his girlfriend in the midst of a zombie outbreak. Frost played Ed, the lovable oaf and best friend of Shaun.

Also in 2006 Nick acted in a second feature film, Kinky Boots.

In late 2005 he starred in the comedy sketch show Man Stroke Woman, which aired on BBC3. A second season of Man Stroke Woman was aired on BBC3 during February/March 2007.

In early 2006 Frost played the lead character, Commander Henderson, in the BBC Two sci-fi sitcom, Hyperdrive. He has recently completed a second series of Hyperdrive, which will air from April 12th on BBC2 in 2007.

Frost and Pegg appeared in a second Pegg-Wright feature, Hot Fuzz, an action and cop genre homage, set in rural Gloucestershire, England. Frost plays bumbling Constable Danny Butterman, who partners up with Pegg's dynamic Nicholas Angel after the latter is transferred from metropolitan London.

Frost narrates the reality show Supernanny, a surprise hit show in the US/Canada, and has made fleeting appearances the Channel 4 TV surreal medical comedy series Green Wing, as "Just a Man" in pub scenes.
