Canadian/Danish actor Thomas Nicholson is heading into a career highlight summer with recurring roles in The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem
Actor Thomas Nicholson has booked dream roles on two popular TV series airing in 2021. On season six of The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, he plays a younger version of a real-life legendary musician who helps the lead cast as they embark on a new quest in the upcoming season. His first episode airs on May 2nd, 2021.
Thomas also appears in a recurring role on Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem, when its new season airs this summer. While we can’t say much about his roles without spoilers, each of them is pivotal to the two TV series this season.
You may recognize Thomas from his work on multiple television shows, notably a recurring role on the hit Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor. In the series’ final twist, his character is revealed to be an older version of lead Miles Wingrave (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth’s character).
He has also had roles in Netflix’s Virgin River, in AMC’s The Terror, Fox’s The X-Files, Bobby Singer’s son on The CW’s Supernatural, The History Channel’s Project Blue Book, and The 100. Thomas has also played leading roles in feature films, including Jake in Project: Eugenics and Luke in Writing Kim.
Taking on the role as Remy Johnson on USA Network’s Damnation was a particular highpoint for Thomas. He is also very proud to be playing the male lead in an upcoming Harold Greenberg short film called The Day We Left, based on the true story of a young Muslim couple that managed to escape Bosnia in the early days of The Bosnian War.
An ardent supporter of independent film, Thomas co-produced and stars in the award-winning short films Fatal Rhapsody and Dog Bite written by his partner, Gemma Holdway. Fatal Rhapsody has won the Audience Choice Award at Harrogate Film Festival (UK) and Award of Commendation at Canada Shorts Film Festival. Dog Bite received the Award of Excellence at Canada Shorts Film Festival and Best Actress to Jennifer Spence at Yes! Let’s Make a Movie Film Festival as well as nominations for Best Drama at Harrogate Film Festival and Best Overall Sound at the Leo Awards. In the Crazy8s film competition, Thomas has a lead role in the film Itsy Bitsy Spider that will be screening at the Wicked Queer film festival in Boston and the Short Circuit Pacific Rim Film Festival in Victoria, BC this spring.
Thomas has kept busy since he made the decision to pursue acting professionally after completing the one-year intensive program at William B. Davis Centre at VanArts in Vancouver after he moved from Denmark. He was a journalist in Denmark but it was his mother’s horrible diagnosis with early-onset Alzheimer’s that gave Thomas the courage to throw caution to the wind and inspired him to pursue acting full time. In addition to his full-time acting course, Thomas continues to take part-time classes with many teachers across Vancouver. He is currently taking weekly scene study classes with Benjamin Ratner at Haven Studio and has a role in Ratner’s upcoming digital series Trigger Me.
Thomas grew up bilingual (Danish-English) in Randers, Denmark to a Danish mother and an English father. He speaks three other languages with a strong ear for accents that have helped him book Canadian, American, English, Danish, Norwegian and Bosnian characters in front of the camera. In Denmark, he won a prestigious journalism award, the Kravling, and played bass in a post-grunge rock band called Cave.
Thomas currently resides in Vancouver, BC.
