-George Bernard Shaw
``Leading man with ethnic versatility. Equally fitting as the action/adventure hero, intellectual surgeon, or bohemian musician. From the romantic lead to the brooding reluctant hero or charming villain, along with stunt/sword, music/singing, & accent/language skills to boot, Nevin Millan is the diverse era’s quintessential leading man.``

OCT ’20: Nevin filmed a major supporting role in the female led spaghetti western independent film, “Vengeance Turns”. He portrays a complex, multi-cultural character named “Ghost with Silent Knives Protects”. His role was quite physically demanding…not only the actual physicality of the character, but the physical skillset required to pull off certain action shots. Due to Covid, the usual training – in the gym and with stunt/fight trainers – was not really possible (except for the stunt choreography learned the day before the shoot). That meant home workouts (lots of pushups!) and a maxi-climber for cardio.
He also scoured youtube for tutorials on how to do a few key movements that he thought would look good on camera and also mesh with the character’s backstory. While it would’ve been preferable for 3 to 6 months to get into shape (after getting muffin-top chubby during quarantine, yikes!), and to hone fight skills a bit more, during the 5 weeks he did have he busted his but to get to this level by shoot day.One of the many things Nevin loves most about acting is getting deep into his characters by learning different skills, languages, accents, and telling stories about different cultures. Also for this character, with his complex, multi-cultural background and upbringing, Nevin created a unique accent that would reflect this. 🙏🏽⚔️🙌🏽🎭😎
“As an actor of color, mixed ethnicity, I’ve never played a mixed ethnicity character until this project. To portray a part South Asian character, so layered and complex, and help build out the extensive backstory was so important and super exciting. We had creative brainstorming sessions with the talented Kelsey Jaffer (our characters are siblings) to create stories about their history, and how their heritage integrated with the indigenous North American tribes – keep an eye out for some material coming out in the future related to this, it’s pretty damn epic. There’s something really great about these characters – they represent the melting pot that is the US, for better or worse, and how cultures were marginalized, colonized, and absorbed into one another. While the main storyline of the film isn’t specifically about this, thematically it is paramount, and it has opened a conversation to examine many of these issues that most films do not even address. Thank you Bobby for being so open, sensitive, and collaborative about everything. Excited for the prospects of where the Vengeance Turns universe can go from here”, Nevin says.
SEP ’20: During the height of the coronavirus quarantine in April/May, Nevin accepted a filmmaking challenge by prolific producer Roger Corman to film a 2 minute quarantine short film with only the resources in the home where you’re quarantined, which had to be shot on a mobile phone. Nevin wrote, directed, and starred in “The Mutation”, a short film about a virologist attempting to cure a dangerous mutating virus.Several months later, “The Mutation” was accepted into the Demonic Brilliance Horror Film Festival and will screen online from Sep 11-13, 2020.You can view the TRAILER HERE:

NEVIN PANJWANI MILLAN was born and raised in an international household, with immigrant parents of Croatian, Indian, and mixed heritage, in the heartland of America, St. Louis, Missouri. He embarked on his career in the entertainment industry at the age of 4 when he began playing the violin and piano. After making his stage debut as ‘Donald Duck’ in a grade school play, the seeds to his dreams and aspirations were planted. His passion for music grew at the John Burroughs High School (also the alma mater of “Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm, “The Office”‘s Ellie Kemper, Oscar nominee and “House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon, and “24”‘s Sarah Clarke) where he sang in the choir and learned to play the guitar and drums, starting a rock band shortly thereafter.

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).

This skillset comes into play for many of the action heavy characters Nevin portrays.

NEVIN PANJWANI MILLAN has parlayed his career in acting into a budding career as a filmmaker. Through his acting and writing, his passion for storytelling in the visual medium of film was a natural transition. He first foray as a filmmaker was the short film “Balance”, which he produced and also starred in. He saw the project through from development to distribution where it screened at the LA Short Film Festival. His next project was the short film, “In Another Time”, again he starred in and produced, as well as taking on various other hats. He has since produced several other projects, including a comedy pilot for Comedy Central called “Being Bin Laden”, written by members of The Family Guy writing team.

His next step is getting a feature film produced as well as a TV or Web Series on the air. He has several feature film projects in development as well as television format projects. Follow his projects in development at his film production company, ANTIQUITAS PICTURES.
NEVIN PANJWANI 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. In 2020, he won the prestigious Tennessee Williams Poetry Contest held annually by the Key West Historical Society for his poem “A Rose Without Thorns”, written specifically for the contest. 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.

MUSIC and performance have always been an integral part of Nevin’s life. Starting with the violin at the age of 3, he played in concerts at various local schools and auditoriums, impressing audiences with his violin solos at such a young age. Continuing his musical journey with the piano at age 5 and continuing through grade school, he mastered pieces by Beethoven and Schubert. In the 4th grade he took up choir, whilst continuing piano instruction until junior high, when he switched to guitar. He began by learning the basics on an acoustic guitar followed by more rock and roll focused lessons on the electric guitar shortly thereafter. He remained in the junior high and high school choirs, often chosen as a soloist, even qualifying for the Missouri State Choir by auditioning with an acapella song in Italian (“Fa Una Canzona”).At the age of 16, he took up the drums, which he was a natural at, and a few months after his first drum lesson was selected to play with his high school jazz band at John Burroughs High School. At the age of 17, Nevin teamed up with a few friends and started a rock band where he was the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, and co-writer of the music. Over thecourse of the next few years, they played several shows around the St. Louis area.
Although moving away for their respective collegiate experiences inevitably caused the band members to move on, Nevin continued to pursue his music in Miami by taking music theory courses and playing with several different bands at various capacities – drummer, guitarist, and singer.
Nevin has been actively recording a solo 6 song EP where he has written all the music and lyrics and plays all the instruments. He is currently recording at Sunburst Recording in Culver City. Nevin’s musical influences are Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Tool, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Incubus, and The Black Crowes, but he is passionate about all music genres, especially classical, Mozart being his favorite composer.
