Nathan Fillion Online
Your first and ultimate online resource for talented actor, Nathan Fillion.

Nathan Fillion has a reputation. On screen, the actor has flawlessly embodied confident characters you love despite (or maybe because of) their brash confidence. Think “Firefly” leader Malcolm Reynolds, “Dr. Horrible” hero Captain Hammer, or his current incarnation as self-assured mystery writer Richard Castle on ABC’s hit “Castle” for examples of how Fillion expertly walks the fine line between obnoxious and charming.

But in real life, the easygoing Fillion is known as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. Perhaps it’s a Canadian thing; Fillion was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, the son of teachers who, as a child, he can remember adults approaching on the street to thank for changing their lives. Those parents, he says, helped instill in him a sense of gratitude and appreciation, which seems to go hand in hand with his self-deprecating humor.
