He embarked on his career in the entertainment industry at 4 years old when he began playing the violin and piano.

This is when his love for theatre, Shakespeare, and stage performing blossomed and he began to professionally hone his craft as an actor.

After a six month sojourn in Paris where he spent much time in a myriad of museums appreciating masterpieces of art and experiencing the diverse cultures Europe has to offer, he moved to Los Angeles and began his two year Meisner training at the Baron Brown Studio, followed by a summer of vocal, classical, and Shakespeare training with Patsy Rodenburg (formerly from the RSC). In addition, Nevin trained in stage combat, sword fighting, spears, knives, and firearms with several stunt trainers and groups including Brian Danner’s Sword Fights Inc., Bob Goodwin, and more. This skillset comes into play for many of the action heavy characters Nevin portrays.

NEVIN MILLAN has always been an avid reader ever since his days in high school, reading everything from Shakespeare, Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, Dante’s Inferno, to The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Stephen King, Dan Brown, and Michael Crichton novels. When he embarked into his career in songwriting, he began writing down poems, lyrics, and thoughts down in his journal, a practice he continues today. During college and grad school, the requirements for writing many papers on various subjects was a necessity, so he enrolled in a creative writing course as well as an additional expository writing course to further develop his skills. During this time he also began to delve deeper into the works of Machiavelli, Plato, Tolstoy, and Nietzsche. Soon thereafter he began writing opinionated and informational articles about a myriad of subjects for an online magazine in Miami, FL. He has also been a copywriter and content editor for several websites, online magazines, and blogs, such as LA based DailyISO.com. When his filmmaking career began in Los Angeles, he merged his love for film with his writing talents and began his foray into screenwriting.

Fueled by his passion for great films, he wrote and produced several short films. He continues to write in various capacities including feature screenplays, articles, blogs, books, poems and lyrics. He completed his first feature screenplay several years ago which he co-wrote with a writing partner. He is currently working on four feature screenplays, a novel, a children’s book, a self-help book, and a book of poetry.

Nevin’s writing is inspired by the great epic poems and novels of history as well as playwrights such as William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Williams, Sophocles and Euripides, he aims to delve into the deep human spirit and tap into those moments in life that spawn greatness, the crevices in life that spark inspiration and growth.
