& Movement Artist
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Nicholas Anscombe trained at Rose Bruford College. He specialised in physical, devised and experimental theatre. This grounding in physical theatre has allowed Nicholas to explore many avenues of the industry. He now works as a straight actor, puppeteer and a movement/prosthetics performer. He regularly works with theatre companies to devise pieces and collaborate on projects. He has vast film and television experience; including playing otherworldly creatures with full facial and body prosthetics. His latest role is in the new Neil Gaiman series, airing on Netflix this year. Please view his CV, showreels and gallery for examples of his work.
First, let's get the important bit out of the way: Nick is a brilliant actor. If you need to know more than that, keep reading. I've worked with Nick several times now, first in a small role in which he impressed me so much that I then cast as the lead of my next short film. The films he's starred in which I directed have been in over 250 festivals worldwide, aired on TV across the world and helped me raise the finance for my debut feature. Nick was notable for his total absence of complaints on one of the most demanding and challenging shooting days I've ever subjected a cast to, and his eagerness to help in whatever way he could. I'll be working with Nick again, so check with me before you book him so our dates don't clash!
