An attractive player with a screen presence that conveys both youthful sweetness and mischievousness, Canadian born Nathan Bexton made his film debut with a featured role as a sensitive and somewhat sexually ambiguous character in "Nowhere" (1997), the third installment in Gregg Araki's "teen apocalypse" trilogy. The young actor went blonde to play Montgomery, a mysterious boy whose angelic glow appeals to main character Dark (played by James Duval, also featured in 1993's "Totally F***ed Up" and 1995's "The Doom Generation", the first two films in Araki's trilogy) and appears to be his salvation, at least until Montgomery's unfortunate abduction by aliens. The story of young and beautiful Los Angeles drifters, by far the brightest and most accessible of Araki's films up to that point, "Nowhere" won Bexton attention and admirers. Returning to his naturally brown hair, he had a featured role in Doug Liman's fast-paced "Go" (1999). Set on Christmas Eve in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, "Go" proved a most entertaining ride, with its cast of young stars giving strong performances in unexpected roles. Bexton played Mannie, a likable supermarket employee who gets mixed up in a drug deal gone wrong with co-workers Ronna (Sarah Polley) and the reluctant Claire (Katie Holmes). Before long Mannie himself samples too much of the merchandise, his resulting hallucinations adding a most entertaining comic element to the film. He next appeared in a small role in Araki's "Splendor", a 1999 romantic comedy starring "Nowhere" veteran Kathleen Robertson. Again proving his willingness to take gay roles, Bexton was featured opposite Jason Hall and Diva Zappa in "Play Dead" (1999), as a closeted teen whose female best friend unknowingly murders the object of his affection.
