It goes without saying that it takes a certain kind of hustle to make it as an actor in Los Angeles. For NICK FINK, the formula sounds simple enough (while heeding substantial results): unquestionable passion, doing the work, and persistence. Moving to LA and chasing dreams are two things that are commonly synchronous— one usually seeks the former in the hopes of achieving the latter, and vice versa. Fink, who made his way to the city at 19 years of age, claimed it just seemed as if it was “where I had to be… just the place I had to come to.” But after six years of grinding and go-getting, he fondly deems the place home. “I don’t think I’m some typical Hollywood guy or anything but this place has definitely changed me. I think it really helped me to mature into the artist I am now. I think I’ve learned that if you put in the work and show the city respect, it kicks some back at ya,” he explained.

Fink can currently be seen in his role as Tyler Finn on the MTV series, Sweet/Vicious described as an “offbeat superhero story for the millennial generation”. The series circles around the stories of college students staunchly set on stopping abuse on their campus, a feat that, in Fink’s words, is timely and important. “Every character on this show has their own relationship with sexual assault, and each of them is an honest and vulnerable look at how this topic effects people,” he described. “Getting to take this on alone would be overwhelming, but I was surrounded by an incredibly giving cast and writing team, and we all took on the responsibility together.” The show’s message is powerful and highly resonant, and the response received from viewers only affirms that, according to Fink.
