The 17-year-old actor opened up about how important snagging the role of Marius was to him. Nick shared, “Broadway was where I first started finding my voice as an artist and finding my feet as an actor, and the idea of returning to â€˜Les Mizâ€™ was about trying to develop more as an actor.”
He continued, on if he ever felt that boots-over-bonnet type of love Marius does, “I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™ve had love at first sight like Marius has â€” if you think of his experience as 100 percent, Iâ€™ve probably had 50 percent of that. The instant love, whole world stops thing, I donâ€™t know that Iâ€™ve ever really had that moment, so I try to imagine what it would be, and I think my youthfulness might help in that. I think Iâ€™m pretty wide-eyed up there.”
Nick has extended his run for an additional TWO WEEKS — meaning the Camp Rock 2 The Final Jam tour won’t start until August 7.
