At the age of 18, Nicholas Galitzine’s career received a jump-start when his first film audition landed him the lead role in the feature film, The Beat Beneath My Feet (directed by John Williams). The film was nominated in the Raindance category at the 2014 British Independent Film Awards and played in competition at the International Berlin Film Festival 2015.
Galiztine was then cast in the lead role of the rebellious, hip-hop violinist Johnny Blackwell in High Strung. Subsequently, he was cast as one of the lead roles in John Butler’s new feature, Handsome Devil with Andrew Scott. Most recently, Galitzine was announced as one of Screen International’s “Stars of Tomorrow” for 2015.
Galitzine is also an accomplished singer and musician and writes and performs his own music.
