Voiceover • Auditioning for Film/TV
Brief info

Nick Shakoour's inspiration to perform was ignited in the 4th grade when his physical education teacher discovered his ability to morph in and out of the personas of faculty members through his comedic impressions. What started out as a some class fun ended with a school assembly, where within a few hours, Nick would find himself on stage in front of thousands ready to share publicly for the first time, his now, not so hidden talent.

From starring in the Oscar qualifying film, Madaran (Mothers), to recurring on NBC’s State of Affairs, and voicing the hit animated series, Care Bears: Unlock The Magic, as the voices of Grumpy Bear & Tenderheart Bear - Nick has weaved in and out of a plethora of roles.

He has appeared on Hawaii 5-O, Sicario 2: Day of The Soldado, and CBS’ S.W.A.T. Nick can be heard voicing Auntie Uncle & Artichoke, on the 2 time Emmy and Annie Award nominated Netflix series, Buddy Thunderstruck. He can also be seen as Zebedee, in the two time Movie Guide Award nominated series, The Chosen.

Some interactive games he has voiced include, Kingdom Hearts 3, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Skylanders Trap Team, as the voice of Fling Kong.
