Actor Nathan Baesel began his acting education by attending Fullerton College where he graduated with an AA. He completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Theater at U.C.L.A. where he became a founding member of Theater Mitu, the L.A. born and New York based Theater Company created by Ruben Polendo. At The Julliard School in New York he was awarded the Liz Smith prize for voice and speech and turned down the lead in a Broadway production to finish his final year of training.
Moving back to the LA area, Nathan became involved with the acclaimed theater South Coast Repertory, where he starred in several productions. After various guest-starring roles in television, he landed his first starring role last year playing Lewis Sirk, the one-armed deputy in ABC’s sci-fi drama INVASION (created by Shaun Cassidy). While this role won him many admirers for his textured, affecting performance, look for his visibility to soar next month when his first leading role in a feature film hits the big screen! Playing the title role in Anchor Bay’s release of BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON, the film has received some of the greatest acclaim of any genre film in decades, with raves for Mr. Baesel always the standout of any review.
