Nicholas Tucci was born and raised in Middletown, CT. He graduated from Middletown High School before attending Yale University, where he received a BA in Theater and was a member of the sketch comedy group Suite 13. He has acted in numerous theatrical productions across the country, including multiple original works and many by William Shakespeare. He has also written several screenplays, both adapted and original, and all mainly rooted in the horror genre. A rabid, lifelong Stephen King fan, he owns a well-mannered Maine Coon cat named Church (after his favorite novel). Church is alive and well and lives in Middletown, albeit by a busy road.
