British comic actor Nick Frost made a quick name for himself in a one-two-three punch series of British comedy efforts from director Edgar Wright and writer-actor Simon Pegg. Frost became a familiar face in the U.K. as a supporting player alongside Pegg on the acclaimed hit sitcom "Spaced" (Channel 4, 1999-2001), directed by Wright. He continued the rise to glory in the genre-busting feature comedies "Shaun of the Dead" (2004) and "Hot Fuzz" (2007), each another Pegg-Wright collaboration. By then a popular commodity on British television, Frost starred as Commander Henderson on the sci-fi sitcom "Hyperdrive" (BBC2, 2006-07) and appeared with an all-star cast in the raucous dramedy "Pirate Radio" (2009). Once again working with Pegg, he co-wrote and starred in the sci-fi comedy "Paul" (2011), as well as striking out on his own in projects as varied as the cult-favorite monster movie "Attack the Block" (2011) and the action-fantasy "Snow White and the Huntsman" (2012). Having instantly won the hearts of movie and pop-culture geeks on both sides of the Atlantic, Frost was quickly establishing himself as a talent in his own right, rather than merely a component of Team Pegg-Wright.
