Nicky Katt's Main TV Roles
Main Movie Roles
Guest TV Roles[none found]
Nicky Katt has been acting since the age of 7, when he appeared on the TV series "CHiPs" (1977) in 1977. He continued to work steadily through the 1980s on shows like "Quincy M.E." (1976), "Father Murphy" (1981), and "V" (1984) but did not fall into the trap of many child actors who became identified with one famous role because his child roles were as guest spots or, as in the case of "Herbie, the Love Bug" (1982), were canceled early on, or can't get work as adults and allow their lives to fall to piece.
In a way, Katt has had two careers. The one as the child actor of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and as the character actor of the 1990s who so often played the bully or thug. Extremely talented and at ease in front of a camera in the medium of either television or feature film, Katt has had a very impressive body of work for someone of his age and looks to gain much in the way of future stardom as the series "Boston Public" (2000) clearly exhibits his leading-man potential.
- The actors 'William Katt' (qv) and his father, 'Bill Williams (I)' (qv) (birth name Hermann Katt), are his distant cousins.
