About Me!..James Gill Nash
(you know, the guy that this website is dedicated to, I feel like you should know that by now)
I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago where I was a three sport athlete before I quit basketball to audition for the musical theater show (high school musical anyone?). After that show I knew I wanted to make acting my career.
Why did I want to do that? Well, it made me happier than anything else I had ever done and I wanted a career/life where I could do what I love and frankly I was good at it.
So...Win. Win. Win.
After graduating from Trinity College with a degree in Theater and Business, I moved to New York City and began my career as an actor. In NYC I regularly work with Bob Krakower and his associate Josh Mendelow. I have taken classes at Stella Adler, Acting Studio Chicago, Manhattan Film Institute and Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC.
I have been cast in NYU and SUNY Purchase student films, done a reading for a new musical, and have started creating my own work with my other unemployed creative friends. I am also excited to have launched a voiceover business with the help of my coach Jamie Muffett.
Although people who know me would say I am a hard working, nice guy, I have been told I look like the guy who was an @$%# in high school, stole your girlfriend and went on to an Ivy League school on an “Athletic Scholarship”...do with that information what you will.
