Nick Searcy plays the dedicated, but hotheaded Nate Ramsey in UPN's "Seven Days," adding another memorable role to his impressive portfolio of film and television performances.
Searcy was born and raised in Cullowhee, North Carolina, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of North Carolina. He began acting in the fifth grade when the local university needed a child actor for their one act play. He continued performing in high school and college productions before heading to New York to work in off-Broadway theater.
After making his film debut in the feature "Days of Thunder," Searcy appeared in "The Prince of Tides" before delivering one of his most haunting performances: as Mary-Louise Parker's abusive husband in "Fried Green Tomatoes." He was also featured as a kindly sheriff in "Nell," as well as appearing in "The Fugitive"; "The War"; "The Real McCoy"; "Losers in Love"; and "Love Field."
In 1997, Searcy made his directorial debut with "Paradise Falls," an independent film that has already won numerous awards on the festival circuit, including Best Dramatic Feature at Worldfest Houston and Worldfest Charleston. He is making plans to direct his second feature, based on the book "The Man Who Moved a Mountain," by Richard C. Davids.
On television, Searcy played astronaut Deke Slayton in the HBO series "From the Earth to the Moon," and Deputy Ben Healy in the cult series "American Gothic," as well as guest-starring on "Chicago Hope"; "Murder One"; "Nash Bridges"; and "Double Rush." His telefilms include "About Sarah"; "The Perfect Crime"; "Stolen Innocence"; "Roswell"; "In the Best of Families"; "Return to Lonesome Dove"; "A Mother's Right: The Elizabeth Morgan Story"; and "Naomi & Wynonna: Love Can Build A Bridge," in which he played the Judds' manager.
In his free time, Search enjoys movies and basketball. He lives in Los Angeles and North Carolina with his wife, Leslie, and their eight-year-old daughter, Chloe.
