We are delighted to announce the appointment of renowned actor Nicholas Pinnock as an Ambassador to Wellbeing in the Arts.
Nicholas has been working in theatre, television and film for over 30 years, and his extensive list of credits include lead roles in the ABC / SKY series ‘For Life’, ‘Criminal’, ‘Counterpart’, ‘Top Boy’ (Channel 4 / Netflix), ‘Marcella’ (Netflix) and ‘Guerilla’ (Sky Atlantic).
His theatre credits include critically acclaimed roles in long running productions at venues such as the Royal Court and Glasgow Citizen’s Theatre.
Nicholas is a passionate advocate for mental health support in the Arts and has often spoken openly about his own personal battles with his mental health. He is also an Ambassador for MIND, the mental health charity.
Nicholas said ‘Due to my own mental health issues, it became very clear to me that I was feeling the weight of my characters trauma vicariously, I’ve cried on set more times than I can remember, and whilst I was putting in place plans myself to provide the support I would like to see in the industry, I came across Wellbeing in the Arts, who had gone ahead and done everything that I think is needed. I could not be prouder to become one of their Ambassadors in a hope that I can add to the great work they have done already to give people in the Arts the help they truly need”.
