loyal, and we’re often too moral for our own good. We both also have a really hard time letting go of injustices.” This is apparent in that Nick is an avid supporter of the AIDS Walk Los Angeles and New York which he first participated in with a friend. “While there, I heard people’s personal stories about having struggled with the disease at a time when there was a huge stigma to have it. You hear the numbers, and it’s a far-off thing, but then you talk to people who have heartbreaking stories. That’s what made me want to come back and support the cause year after year.” Nick advises that, “We should listen to people, contribute what we can, and just be a part of the awareness.” Listening and trying to help people is why Nick revealed that there was a time when he was really interested in being a therapist.
Right now though if he was not acting or residing in L.A. he perhaps would be interested in writing or living in England. His fondness of England came from dating “this really lovely girl, who used to live in Bristol. I traveled there a lot to see her.” England to him, “just felt more handmade than where I grew up and most parts of America that I’ve been to, and I loved that. I could really feel its history-I could feel the smallness of so many of the buildings and the narrowness of the streets. It wasn’t like a grid, and I just thought it was beautiful.” England is indeed a gorgeous place, but hopefully neither Nick nor his counterpart Jack will be leaving us anytime soon, and we can continue to enjoy and cheer for him on-screen for quite some time.
