Nicholas John "Nick" Frost is an English actor and comedian. He has appeared in many of director Edgar Wright's productions, having starred as Watt Mike Watt in Wright's 1999 television series Spaced. Frost has also been the star of the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy along with his best friend Simon Pegg, as both of them have played the lead roles in all three films. Frost portrays Ed in Shaun of the Dead, Danny Butterman in Hot Fuzz, and Andy Knightley in The World's End.
Prior to Spaced, Frost shared a flat with Simon Pegg, his best friend and fellow star of the show. He worked as a waiter and his acting experience consisted of minor roles in corporate training video clips, and minor roles in Casualty (1994) and Big Train (1998). The director of Spaced, Edgar Wright, was initially wary of hiring Frost for the role of Mike Watt, but was convinced to by Pegg as the role was based on a character of Frost's and the role was written for him.
