Nicholas Braun Biography (Age)

Nicholas Joseph Braun was born to Elizabeth Lyle and Craig Braun on the 1st of May 1988 in Long Island, New York. He has a brother named Christopher Deyo Braun. Christopher is also a creative fellow as he is a musician. His parents divorced when he was just five and following their subsequent remarriages, he has two half-brothers; Guillaume Rumiel and Timothy Braun. Both are equally involved in the movie industry.

Braun had his education at St Mark’s School, Southborough, Massachusetts and finished in 2006. He fell in love with acting at the age of five due to his father’s influence. His father was a budding actor whilst working in corporate America. The older Braun took acting classes and regularly shared what he learned with his son. The young Braun also helped his father rehearse his lines and all this made him fall in love with acting and he decided to pursue it as a career.

Nicholas joined the drama group in his school. He also scoured acting magazines for open calls and would regularly attend the auditions. All this hard work paid off in the 2000s when Braun landed minor roles in some TV films and series. He was still in high school at that time and featured in projects such as Walter and Henry (TV film- 2001), Law & Order: SVU (2002), and Carry Me Home (TV film- 2004).

Nicholas Braun rose to the spotlight in 2005. This was thanks to the superhero comedy film, Sky High. In it, he played the role of a teenager who has the ability to glow in the dark. From Sky High, Braun went on to appear in various Disney movies such as Minuteman (2008), Princess Protection Program (2009), and Prom (2011). He also appeared in two ABC TV series, 10 Things I Hate About You and The Secret Life of an American Teenager.

Nicholas Braun has been romantically linked with some of his colleagues in the past. He was rumoured to have dated former video-vixen/model turned actress, Cody Kennedy.

He stated that he loves her as a person and loves working with her.
