THE WORLD'S END
NICK FROST (Andy Knightley) first came to prominence in the award-winning Channel 4 sitcom Spaced, playing Mike Watt -- a character he had originally created to amuse his real-life best friend Simon Pegg. In addition to teaming the two friends, the show also marked Mr. Frost's first collaboration with director Edgar Wright, and the trio went on to make the hit movies Shaun of the Dead -- for which Mr. Frost was a British Independent Film Award nominee and a Fangoria Chainsaw Award winner -- and Hot Fuzz.
Ever since, Mr. Frost has become one of the U.K.'s most sought-after actors. He has hosted series of his own for Channel 5, Danger! 50,000 Volts! and Danger! Incoming Attack!; appeared in the Channel 4 sitcom Black Books; starred in the BBC sketch-comedy series Man Stroke Woman; and played the lead in the BBC2 sci-fi comedy series Hyperdrive.
His other movie credits include Rupert Sanders' blockbuster Snow White and the Huntsman; Richard Curtis' Pirate Radio, a.k.a. The Boat That Rocked, also for Working Title and Focus Features; Julian Jarrold's Kinky Boots; Mark Palansky's Penelope; Nick Moore's Wild Child'; and Joe Cornish's award-winning Attack the Block. He will soon be seen starring and dancing opposite Rashida Jones in James Griffiths' Cuban Fury, on which he also served as executive producer and for which he conceived the original story idea.
With Simon Pegg, Mr. Frost wrote the original screenplay Paul, which they starred in for Working Title under the direction of Greg Mottola, and for which he received a National Movie Award nomination in the U.K. Mr. Frost and Mr. Pegg subsequently portrayed Herge's beloved detectives Thomson & Thompson, respectively, for Steven Spielberg's epic motion-capture feature The Adventures of Tintin; and are doing voice work for Focus Features and LAIKA's upcoming animated tale The Boxtrolls, directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable.
His lead performance in the BBC adaptation of Martin Amis' Money, directed by Jeremy Lovering, garnered acclaim from critics and the author alike. Mr. Frost next stars in the title role of the 1960s-set Sky Atlantic television series Mr. Sloane, from writer/director Robert B. Weide, alongside Olivia Colman and Ophelia Lovibond.
