Muskoka Actor Nicholson in Country Music Video

Click Here to Read the Full Article from What’s Up Muskoka

Muskoka actor Adam Nicholson has become well known to country music fans from across the globe for his appearance in George Canyon’s latest video, Better Be Home Soon.

Nicholson grew up in Mortimer’s Point in Muskoka and plays the part of a father in turmoil in this heart wrenching video.

One of the shots required him to spend hours on his back on damp pavement in cooler temperatures wearing nothing but a long-sleeve shirt and t-shirt. However the actor said that the crew brought him a coat and hot drinks between takes.

Since Better Be Home Soon, Nicholson has completed a short film as part of the Toronto 48-Hour Film Project called My Best Friend Was an Alien.
