Nicholas Biddle

Class of 2022


Nicholas Biddle was raised in a small suburb of Virginia and moved to New York before coming to Carnegie Mellon. His father was the executive director at the Ferguson Center of The Arts for many years, and as such, Nicholas has been acting, singing, dancing, and pretending since he was 3 years old. At CMU some of Nicholas’s favorite roles have been Eli in Power/Trip, a tentative character that can’t escape cycles of violence, and Anatole in Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812, a charismatic bachelor that deceives those around him seemingly for pleasure.

In addition to being an actor, Nicholas has developed a passion for writing and producing original music, he plays the guitar as well as the bass. He’s collaborated on several student works in both theatre and on camera, such as Milk and Honey, a political election farce, The Quoarin’ Twenties, a period piece about spiraling during quarantine, and The Space Inbetween, A short film that deals with breaking monotony and finding peace. When not performing he can be found frolicking through the woods playing his Ocarina. He is very grateful for the time he spent growing at CMU alongside such talented, like-minded artists, as well as for his parents for always supporting him and his eccentric passions.
