Chilean-American actor/writer/producer, Nick Puga, was raised in Miami, FL where he began his career starring in commercials while studying at Florida International University. Nick’s first break came shortly after moving to Los Angeles, when after a nationwide search, he was cast to co-star with Christina Aguilera in a bilingual Coca-Cola campaign. He then turned heads with his dramatic portrayal of Tommy in the award-winning short Eating, which premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. His film credits include Steven Spielberg's The Terminal and Steven Soderburgh's Oceans 13, and he has appeared on hit television shows such as CBS's NCIS: Los Angeles, Fox's House, ABC's Apartment 23 and CW's Veronica Mars.
Nick's versatility has allowed him to be involved in a variety of projects: he garnered attention with his comedic music video PPL B TXT'N 2MUCH, which caught the eye of MTV execs and won several awards on the short film festival circuit, he lends his voice to the Adult Swim series Minoriteam, and has worked as a producer on several episodes of MTV's Emmy Award winning series True Life. Nick has also enjoyed success as a commercial actor; he has starred in over 100 national television commercials including several high profile Super Bowl ads and major national campaigns alongside the likes of Matthew Broderick, Dennis Haysbert, T-Pain, Glenn Dorsey, Nick Price, Bear Grylls and Jon Lovitz. Most recently, Nick is starring in the major theatrical & television campaign for General Electric "Time Upon A Once" directed by Andreas Nilsson and produced by Vincent Landay.
Being a full-time working actor since 2006, he recently began investing some of his free time on a project (http://teammegapowers.com) that would add value to others and support his mission: entertain, educate, and empower people to design their own lifestyle; because he believes it’s always best for people to do what they really want to do, instead of what they think they have to do.
After the Wedding’s Diego Diaz is Nick’s debut starring role in a feature film.
