Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A wiry, WASPy actor with boyish clean-cut good looks, Taylor Nichols gained prominence in two features directed by Whit Stillman after honing his craft in theatrical productions. Raised in East Lansing, MI, the actor studied business at the University of Michigan before moving to NYC to embark on his career. Nichols acted in minor Off-Off-Broadway productions, while dancing in the chorus in stock company productions and the national tour of "Sugar Babies". At a cattle call audition, Nichols impressed Stillman enough to land the role of Charlie, the bespectacled neurotic, in "Metropolitan" (1990). He brought humor and humanity to the role of a stuttering, pontificating preppie who often has his beliefs challenged and destroyed. Hollywood soon beckoned and Nichols moved to L.A. to co-star with James Garner in the short-lived NBC political sitcom "Man of the People" (1991).

Notes

"It's funny, because the movie ['Barcelona'] is sort of about [director Whit Stillman's] life. My character in the movie parallels what Whit did. He fell in love with this Spanish woman and had to deal with the differences between American culture and Spanish culture." --Taylor Nichols to THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 21, 1994
