Nathan Fillion appears to be a typical neat and nice guy, evident in his acquisition of “good guy” roles. But this just means that he is persuasively good in acting. In fact, he is also highly capable of depicting bold and audacious character roles. Despite his years of acting experience, he remains to exude a humble impression, which makes him a very endearing celebrity to the press. Naturally appealing, he gives the viewers a taste of what he is all about on the series Drive.
Born on March 27,1971 in Alberta, Canada, Nathan Fillion was exposed in the field of theater, television and film. His earlier works included Theatersports, Die-Nasty and the soap opera One Life to Live, where he was nominated in 1996 for a Daytime Emmy Award in the “Outstanding Younger Actor” category. Upon moving to Los Angeles, he landed a spot on the sitcom Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place. Eventually, he acquired more TV and movie projects like Saving Private Ryan, Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and FireFly, where he won the “Cinescape Genre Face of the Future – Male” award by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, USA.
Fillion’s inclusion on Drive gives him the opportunity to lead the series. His convincingly good acting has made his character very interesting to watch. He depicts a 35-year old landscaper who has created a serene life for himself and his wife Kathryn. Unfortunately, his wife is now missing and he must ditch his tranquil way of life to adapt to a more daring lifestyle. His participation on the dangerous cross-country road race called “The Race” is motivated by his desperation and determination to find his wife.
