Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicholas Dolan.
Nicholas, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I moved to Los Angeles over a year ago to become an actor and break into the entertainment business. Yes, I know you have heard this story before. However, I am going to change the entertainment industry.
The industry is lacking in real and genuine people. I will change that. Growing up, I was the kid who when my parents had people over, I would gather all the kids up and organize a skit or commercial to perform in front of all the adults. I played sports growing up, and I was always commentating trying to make everyone laugh as we played.
I want to be the reason a family gets together on a Sunday evening and laughs/cries together while watching me in a movie/TV show. If I can bring them closer, if I can inspire, if I can just bring a smile to your face after a long day, I will have done my job,
And I will.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Life is never a completely smooth road. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be life! If everything was smooth and perfect and no mistakes, then could we really appreciate true happiness? No, we would not be able too.
Especially as an actor, I have faced and continue to face countless rejections. You have to be strong mentally as an actor. When I first moved to LA, I was hopping from job to job. From Postmates to catering, to working at a gym, I have done it all. I currently work for Quest Diagnostics which is a stable, solid job. I have to keep the lights on at my apartment while also hustling on the weekends for auditions.
I am also currently looking for an agent/manager, so if an agent or manager is reading this, I’m available!
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
For me as an actor, I know I am very natural on camera. But what really sets me apart is that I am real. If I shake your hand, I mean it. I am not looking to brown nose or use you to get somewhere ahead.
I love acting. I absolutely love it. And that is why when you see me on screen, you will see my true passion shine through.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My plans for the future is to become a full-time actor, have my own business, and have my own show. I am also going to learn and love more about myself as I grow as a human. And I will stop worrying so much about the future and enjoy this present life which is oh so lovely.
