Nick Stevenson can be seen most recently in Netflix’s newest hit show, Orange is the New Black, as “Pete Harper” alongside Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Laura Prepon and Taylor Schilling. The series is written and produced by Jenji Kohan (Weeds) and is currently filming season two in NYC. He also recently guest starred opposite Jim Caviezel in the CBS drama, Person of Interest, and enjoyed filming a cameo role in season two of Cinemax’s Girls Guide to Depravity.
Making the festival rounds (winner at the Rainier International Film Festival, runner-up at the Tupelo Film Festival and best comedy at the Manhattan Film Festival to name a few nods), Stevenson has traveled the country this summer with the independent film, Isn't it Delicious, starring Kathleen Chalfant, Keir Dullea and Alice Ripley. And set for release later in 2013, he plays one of the title roles in the sci-fi thriller, Extinction Patient Zero, which also stars Rebecca Blumhagen and Corin Nemec.
Stevenson's voice can be heard at any time on many famous ad campaigns such as commercials for Gillette, Miller Light, Energizer Batteries, British Airways, The Sydney Morning Herald, Louis Vuitton, McDonald's and The Weinstein Company, among others.
In between gigs, he is working on putting together a documentary about his recent motorcycle trip down to the Tupelo Film Festival in Tupelo, MS. The central theme focuses on an actor’s personal journey and how important local film festivals are to independent filmmakers. Stevenson is also working on a screenplay much inspired by the trip called Tupelo Elvis with the same dream team from Isn’t it Delicious. He also has two other completed screenplays and teleplay that he is focusing on getting off the ground.
In 2006, Nick co-founded The Outhouse Theatre Company with fellow Aussie and long-time pal Jeremy Waters. The company is dedicated to the cultivation and development of both emerging and established Australian theater artists. The company had a good start with the premiere of The Boys by Gordon Graham directed by the wonderfully talented Craig Baldwin and since then, has enjoyed a successful run of Mercy Thieves and Ride by Jane Bodie at the 59 East 59th Street Theatre. Stevenson and Waters are always sourcing material for the company's next projects.
Stevenson graduated from The Atlantic Theater Company's Conservative Acting School in 2002. Since then, he has performed in many productions all around the country and upstate (in his Summer stock days). Some of his favorite theater credits include The Boys, Mercy Thieves, Balm in Gilead, Careless Love, He Died with a Falafel in His Hand, Bed and How The Other Half Loves by Alan Ayckbourn to name a few. In 2007, for his love of theater Stevenson traveled to Greece with the One Year Lease Troupe and performed in Widows and Reader by Ariel Dorfman. Reader was also performed at The New York Fringe Festival and received praises from critics.
Stevenson currently resides in New York and is expecting his first child with this wife this winter. He’s sometimes seen performing at The Comic Strip NYC, Broadway Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club and various clubs and has said that stand-up comedy helps him flex his brain and he enjoys the challenge.
