Nicholas was born on the May 16th 1989. He lives in a small village just outside Dover. He lives with his younger brother Elliot who is 6 years old and his older sister Jessica who is 17 years old. His parents are Simon and Claire Roud. He attended the village primary school, Lydden primary. It was here that he discovered he enjoyed performing. He loved doing all the school productions. The music and drama teacher that discovered his talent and enthusiasm for performing, encouraged him to join an after school drama group. At the age of 8, he joined Imagination Theatre Group. Here he put on many productions and had the opportunity to audition in London for West End productions. At the age of 9, an audition finally paid off and he landed himself his first professional acting job in London's West End, playing poor baby in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Whistle down the Wind. He played the part for 6 months in the Aldwich Theatre. The following year he was offered another part in the West End in The Beautiful Game in the Cambridge Theatre. At the age of 11, he decided he wanted to do television and film as well as theater and he consequently joined the Doreen English 95 Agency. With this he went to television and film auditions and got his first television part playing 'Sydney' in the BBC's Ghost Hunter. He played an Elizabethan ghost going on adventures through time machines and escaping from the ghost hunter.
More recently, he has played 'Ronald' in Island at War for ITV and has done three radio plays for BBC Radio 4. He has just started playing the part of 'Terrance' in a new CBBC program, The Playground. He is hoping to continue his career in acting.
