Nick Frost Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Mar 28, 1972
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Best friend of frequent co-star Simon Pegg, Essex-born Nick Frost got his start as a comedy writer before gaining prominence on the BAFTA-nominated sitcom Spaced. After the show bowed in 2001, Frost joined his cast mates and director Edgar Wright in the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead. Featuring Frost as the slovenly sidekick to the aforementioned Pegg's leading man, Shaun was released in 2004 and went on to become an international cult hit, turning its modest budget into 30 million dollars in worldwide box-office grosses. For his performance, Frost earned a nomination for the Most Promising Newcomer prize at the British Independent Film Awards. In the wake of the success of Shaun of the Dead, Frost starred in the U.K. sci-fi comedy series Hyperdrive before re-teaming with Pegg and Wright yet again, this time for the 2007 big-screen cop comedy Hot Fuzz. That same year, Frost and Pegg could also be seen on La Triviata, a BBC sitcom they co-wrote and directed about pub trivia contests. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
