Starting off in the acting world isn’t easy, and everyone has their own story to tell as to how they started their career; Phoenix Nicholson has launched into the industry as a total rising star. His steps into the acting profession started as a joke or sheer luck.
At just three months old, the acting gates were opened. Yes, he really was that young. He was a baby when he was hired for laughing rather than crying, as expected by both his parents and the cameraman. His father is soap opera actor John Nicholson – and so it isn’t a surprise that Phoenix Nicholson was cast as Lucy in All My Children at such a young age, especially with his father being on set at the time,
At a young age, Phoenix Nicholson began acting, drawn to the thrill of assuming different identities through his roles. From starring in “All My Children”, he went on to print ads and national commercials including adverts for The Home Depot and Homegoods. He went on to have a starring role in the film “Once Upon a Lifetime”, playing the role of Thomas Conley, where he even won a Nova Star award for Best Actor in a feature film for ages 4-11.
