Celebrating Llanview, Nic Robuck Loves Out Loud

The youngest of four siblings, Nic Robuck grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. He attended Scecina Memorial Catholic High School where he did many shows and plays. “I really enjoyed it, but I wanted to be a Disney animator when I was younger. I was into art. Then I saw the movie Titanic.” He then decided to be an actor said to myself “and make movies just like that … I wanted to affect people that way as well.” He played "A wide-range of characters. I was in Fiddler on the Roof, and I played Motel, the tailor. That was my first singing solo and that was just gut-wrenching. I was also in the play version of Pillow Talk where I played the assistant to one of the leading ladies; [he] had a French accent. I took French at the time, so I was really proud of the work I did with that." He graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California, where he did Cabaret and a couple of original plays. Before joining One Life to Live as James Ford in June of 2010 Nic appeared on television shows in guest roles on The Young and the Restless, CSI: Miami, and iCarly.

"I was just brought on to be new love interest in Starr's life. It wasn't intentional for me to be Ford's brother. When they noticed how much we really did resemble each other, they said, 'Let's make him Ford's younger brother.' The resemblance is astonishing. Even my dad has confused us. He was looking through a magazine of another interview I had done, and he said, 'Oh, here you are.' I said, 'That's not me. That's the guy who plays my brother.'" Nic views his time on One Life to Live as a new beginning. Let’s hope that it is just the beginning for this young man. His presence at Celebrate Llanview at Sidetracks on January 13, 2012 to benefit Season of Concern will help bring many of his devoted fans to the cause. Get your tickets here. Go! Meet Nic.
