Nicole Lee Durant originally hails from Asheville, NC. After believably faking sick one too many times in school, she knew she had a knack for acting. Since moving out to Los Angeles, she’s kept busy studying with The Groundlings, Scott Sedita, and Playhouse West. In addition, Nicole has been involved in several short films, commercials, and industrial videos. She co-wrote, co-directed, produced and acted in a New Media piece, “Comfortably Awkward,” that paved the way for her SAG Eligibility.
Nicole thrives on the idea of taking people and transporting them to a place other than their normal reality through her work. When not acting, she’s always keeping an eye out for new roads to explore and enhance her career while diving into adventures. She loves cooking, entertaining, people watching, laughing, and playing nerdy board games. However above all, Nicole can’t get enough of watching films and television.
Born in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and raised in Venezuela, Congo, Nigeria, England, and France, Tim had a truly unique upbringing. He began his acting career in London at four years old and never looked back. Attending Bates College in Lewiston, ME, Tim graduated with a BA and Honors degree in Theater. He was a three time Irene Ryan candidate in the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival from 2008-2010. He continued his training in New York and London, attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the British American Drama Academy. Tim now lives in Los Angeles, where he has kept busy as an actor, writer, and director. Tim’s favorite films include “Signs,” “Minority Report” and “Moon” and TV shows such as “Firefly” and the “X-Files.”
An avid baseball fan, Tim can often be found at a Red Sox game; and ask him if it’s possible to play baseball in Cairo, Egypt: it is- he has. Tim takes full advantage of the southern California weather, playing tennis and hiking Runyon Canyon. In his spare time, Tim sharpens his Portuguese hoping to one day return and reside in Rio de Janeiro. Tim was drawn to “Shadows on the Wall” because of its unique script which captures the strongest qualities of the sci-fi genre. Although the film explores gripping elements of the supernatural, there is a dramatic ‘human’ element that remains true to reality – conflict that manifests itself not in the discovery of the supernatural, but in the choices and consequences of a character’s decisions. Not to mention North Carolina was another opportunity for Tim to take on a new adventure with an excellent cast and Ben Carland in the great Smokey Mountains.
