Nigel spent ten years working professionally in Dublin the 80’s and 90’s. He has run his own business, The Limerick School of Acting since 1992. On request, he has worked on some film, TV, and commercials. His passion is for acting, especially for camera. He considers himself a nice guy and can’t understand why he is constantly being cast as a gangster or villain! Whatever the role, Nigel just loves the challenge of it all.
