Nick Erkelens guest stars in ABC’s Forever

By Leland Henry

Nick Erkelens recently booked his first TV acting job in filming an episode of ABC’s Forever. Erkelens played Jeffery Templeton, a photographer’s apprentice who gets involved in the story when the detectives come to meet his boss.

“I felt like the nervous new kid at school,” said Erkelens. “But everyone was super warm and welcoming.”

Filming wrapped the first week of March and the episode aired on March 31, 2015.

“I learned a lot about the process of shooting a TV show and couldn’t be more grateful for the experience,” said Erkelens. “It was a dream come true.”

Now, Erkelens said he is back to auditioning a couple times every week, bartending and working on writing a script.

“The trick is to remember the good times and think of every audition as an opportunity to act, not get a job,” said Erkelens. “It’s still a grind, but there’s nothing else in the world I’d rather be doing.”
