Nick Dash born "Nicholas Michael Dash" on January 16, 1974 in Long Island, New York, is an American actor, and producer. While he prefers to identify himself as a non-celebrity, the public believes otherwise when he was voted one of the Hottest New Upcoming Actors of 2008. Nick is best known for his roles in films such as Anthony Swoffard's Gulf War memoir Jarhead (2005) starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Farmview/Circe's World Films upcoming film Pool Party (2008).

Following high school, Nick immediately enlisted and served Honorably in the United States Marine Corps for nearly 14 years when an injury prevented him from finishing his career. Nick's first film role was an uncredited but noteworthy appearance in the 2005 film Jarhead. He then produced, directed and starred in the 2005 short film Porthole, a short semi-autobiographical film which follows a Marine attempting to find himself after the Corps. His film was submitted to the 2006 Cannes Film Festival where it got a unfeigned reception. After moving to LA, Nick went on to work numerous films and television including a guest appearance on The Best Damn Sports Show Period and the MTV Movie Awards 2005 Pre-Show, but felt more comfortable behind the scenes training actors to be Marines and Soldiers.

In 2006 he found himself leaving Hollywood and settling down in Florida to be closer to his children. While in Florida, Nick was a guest star for an episode of Dr. G: Medical Examiner on Discovery. There he met and fell in love, the woman whom he would later tell sources, "I met my soul-mate when I least expected it, I love her more than she will ever know". They have since had a child together.

Nick's latest project is Mikael Saloman's made for television's, The Andromeda Strain (2008) (TV). Despite his recent stardom, Nick has since given up acting for the time being and now lives in Washington, D.C. doing what he love's the most, Serving Our Country.
