At A Glance
Canadian-born Nathan Fillion won over audiences of all ages for his charming and romantic portrayal of Joey Buchanan. Joey found love with off-beat Kelly Cramer, despite the longstanding feud between their two families. Their relationship was on shaky ground, however, when Joey found himself drawn to Olivia, a beautiful, mysterious woman with a hidden agenda.

In 1996, Nathan was nominated for both a Soap Opera Award for Outstanding Younger Lead Actor and a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor.

The youngest son of two high-school English teachers, Nathan was one semester shy of graduating from the University of Alberta when he won the role of Joey and packed his bags for New York City. Though he is a newcomer to daytime television, he appeared in Die Nasty, an improvised comedy spoof of a soap opera performed at a local Edmonton theater. Nathan is also no stranger to ABC: In December, 1992, he appeared in Ordeal in the Arctic, a television movie starring Richard Chamberlain and Melanie Mayron.

Among Nathan's variety of Canadian credits is the television movie, Strange and Rich, and theatrical performances in the Orlando and Edmonton Fringe Festivals. He also competed in Theatresports as a member of Rapidfire Theatre, an Edmonton theater company.

Since being transplanted to Manhattan, Nathan has taken to city streets for his latest interest, roller-blading. Among his other talents, Nathan boasts riding a unicycle, "washing cars, housework and mowing lawns."

Nathan was previously a regular in the ABC show Two Guys and a Girl and later played the lead role in the short run Fox series, Firefly.

In 2009, Nathan became the star of the ABC television series, "Castle", playing successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle who with permission from the Mayor of New York City tags along with a NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
