Does Nick want to be James Bond?

With his dashing looks, Nick has said he wouldn’t mind playing James Bond.

“Very rarely can you name specific roles because you don’t know the films that are yet to be made,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.

“But of those that will, I’ve always said I’d like a stab at being James Bond – but then who hasn’t?!”

Will Nick leave the show?

Although Nick has no plans to leave the show, he does acknowledge that balancing other work is a problem.

He told Radio Times in 2020: “I definitely have lots of other, different aspirations, so staying and doing one job for a very long time is not usually part of the plan.

“But it’s a very hard job to turn down, so as ever each year we’ll just see what happens.

“So it is a challenge, and that’s often the reason why people decide to move on from some shows, because they just go, ‘Well, I’d love to keep doing this but I need to balance with other things’…

“It can be a challenge, so you’re always as an actor trying to find balance in your career, you know.

“And I definitely, obviously I have aspirations to do lots of different things as well.”
