Nick May is a graduate of the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City and performing has always been a part of his life. As a child he would memorize and recite commercials at family functions, much to his embarrassment a family favourite was when he would perform the O.B. tampon commercial at the tender age of 5. As he got older he experimented in other artistic endeavours, including an attempt at learning guitar until he realized that he was rhythmically changed. His first official public performance was a self-produced stage adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas which was performed at Blessed Trinity Catholic Elementary School at the age of 13. In High School Nick's true passion was further developed, performing in yearly one man shows and the school production of Grease (Despite being rhythmically challenged, he made it work). In his final year he also initiated the schools' involvement in the Sear's Ontario Drama Festival, he also reached out and performed in Community Theatre. As his experience in theatre grew, he decided to pursue conservatory acting programs in New York City.
Nick's final showcase performance at AMDA included scenes from Equus and Master Harold and the Boys. He went on to perform at shows in the New York Fringe Festival and the New York Fresh Fruit Festival as well as several shows with Phare Play Productions.
In 2007 Nick made his film debut in the LGBT film, The Houseboy. The film received rave reviews at film festivals around the world and is distributed on DVD through TLA Entertainment. The film has since been adapted for the stage in Italy and Florida.
After three great years in New York City, Nick moved back to Toronto, Canada and has performed in various shows including Out of Character which was featured as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival.
In 2011 Nick is looking to expand his creative repertoire by writing his first feature-length film.
