Character Bio

Nucky Thompson photo
Nucky was born and raised in New Jersey, the eldest child of a poor Irish Catholic family. He had a troubled childhood: His father, Ethan Thompson (Tom Aldredge), abused him, at one point scarring Nucky's hand with a fireplace poker, and his sister Susan died of tuberculosis. For a time, Nucky attended New Jersey State Normal School in Trenton and planned on becoming a teacher. However, he left college and returned to Atlantic City when Commodore Louis Kaestner (Dabney Coleman) needed him. Fifteen years before the series' timeline, Nucky lost his infant son, Enoch Jr., to pneumonia, a tragedy that drove his wife, Mabel, to commit suicide.
