From American classics to fringe comedy, Nick Mauldin has made a name for himself by bringing vivid, dynamic characters to life. This year Mauldin appeared in and co-produced the highly anticipated London premiere of 'Hair of Dog' at the Tristan Bates Theatre. This painfully candid LGBTQ+ dramedy set inside a Fraternity’s Formal Evening follows the fraternity's president, Evan, as he explores the themes of masculinity, sexuality, and the loss of innocence. Mauldin shines at Brett Reynolds, an openly-gay man and outsider to the fraternity who encourages Evan to no longer deny his inhibitions. In his review for Broadway Baby, Christopher Kelsey said, "Mauldin was absolutely terrific as Brett. When we really got to know him, later in the play, he too was able to show a deep vulnerability which fully rounded the character."
Mauldin was also seen in the Off-West End showing of'The Dip' following its sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The stoner comedy follows Al who is just about to kiss his best mate, Nic, when the Baba Ganoush Gestapo burst in, kidnap and thrust him into the best-worst, mushroom-induced, psychedelic trip of homosexual awakening. Mauldin stands out as Officer Flatfish, a tyrannical, six-foot halibut who is on the run from his troubled past and received praise from audiences and critics.
In 2019, Mauldin will be seen in short films like'I Was There', 'For Better, For Worse', and 'Attentive'.
From a young age, Mauldin has been extremely passionate about entertaining people in and out of acting. A two time district champion in Humorous Monologue and performing in Cy Creek's Theatre Department, he took some time away from acting to pursue his passion for music. Gigging and recording music with his band Zzyzx, Mauldin is the original drummer of the hard rock group and spent a lot of time learning multiple instruments and songwriting while playing with them.
Upon his return to the stage, Mauldin found an abundance of work in Houston, Texas including Tennessee William's The Glass Menagerie and Tony Kushner's Angels in America. After his performance in Amadeus as Mozart, he was awarded Best Actor of 2016 by Broadway World Houston. In that same year, Mauldin trained tirelessly with director Matthew C. Logan to attend East 15 Acting School in London where he would perform a wide range of characters such as Lopakhin in The Cherry Orchard and Titania in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
When Mauldin is not terrorizing the streets of Edinburgh as Flatfish, he enjoys spending time with his friends and family, and watching American Football.
