Born Nicolas Mathu Allen, both of Nic’s parents have Down syndrome. Raised by his grandparents in Stockton CA, he began acting almost before he could talk, imitating every move he saw in every music video he watched. His first stage experience was in second grade, and he didn’t miss a year. School plays, choir, dance lessons, he loved it all. His passion for sports, including swimming, basketball, and football, came a close second to his love of acting. Perfecting his dance moves at lunch and pep rallies helped Nic succeed in high school, where he won the support of his entire high school. In 2015, Nic was voted Best Male Dancer by his senior class. Post high school, Nic has continued serious training in dance and drama at San Joaquin Delta Community College. In mid-2018, he took part in Joey Travolta’s Inclusion Film Workshop. He had previously voiced the role of the “Computer” in their 2016 production of JUDGE JOEY. Nic also notably played “Jackson” in the 2017 Amazon Prime pilot for LOVE YOUR MORE, directed by “Bobcat” Goldthwait. This fall Nic will attend the Wayfinders program at Fresno State University to further advance his performance skills.
