Hi,

My name is Nicholas Anscombe. I am a professional British actor living in London. I also work as a puppeteer and creature performer. I have extensive experience working in film, television and theatre.

I played Merv Pumpkinhead (Body) in the No.1 Netflix series, The Sandman, from Neil Gaiman.

I am great at both serious scenes and character scenes and am very comfortable doing larger than life and out there characters. I am an excellent sight reader and am regularly cast from self-tapes and video auditions. I also offer great feedback, ideas and advice on self-taping and character (If asked!).

Whether you just want me to help run lines, self-tape or lend you my thoughts, I'm happy to help in whatever way I can. I am a very friendly, laid back and professional individual. Do message me with any enquiries.

If I'm not online you can drop me a message on Instagram @nickacts or to nicholasanscombe@hotmail.com and we can set something up.

Last year I was cast in lead/featured roles in 4 feature films, various shorts, commercials and corporate projects. I also played 'John' in a tour of Kevin Elyot's, 'My Night With Reg'.

You can see my work on Amazon Prime, Netflix, BBC, ITV, CBeebies and Channel 5.

You can also see my IMDb and profiles below.

All the best,
Nicholas.
