Eleni Nico

Eleni has loved the arts for as long as she can remember . She first started as a dancer and cello student. Both were highly influential in her life because they marked the beginning of her creative path. Through out her career she has continued to be adventurous in following her passions and lastly fell in love with acting.

Eleni’s early interest in film ranged from family fun comedies to the strange and abstract. For her it wasn’t just about the wow factor of Hollywood movies, but the inspiration she gained from watching the art of acting. She became so intrigued that she begged her parents to sign her up at Second City. She immediately fell in love and started towards her career as a performer. She had countless roles in plays and musicals and then graduated both from elementary and high school with drama awards. In university she would take a more “realistic” approach to a career in film and earned a degree at Ryerson University in Radio and Television. From there she interned around almost every TV station in Toronto gaining endless amounts of experience on and off camera.

After a series of momentous events Eleni decided to take life by the horns and start being authentic to what she truly wanted for herself…to act. She took headshots and applied to her first indie project, a feature film. It was her first booking and they simply haven’t stopped since. After endless training, she is now working on both short and feature length films, TV Series, and commercials.
