article imageActor and model Nick Bateman opens up about his career Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jan 27, 2015 in Entertainment
Nick Bateman is a triple threat in the industry: actor, model and martial artist. He took some time from his schedule to chat with Digital Journal.
"I am very excited. The end of 2014 was a good year and things are taking off this year. I have a movie coming out and I am here in Los Angeles. It's going to be an interesting year," Bateman said.
He continued, "I am focusing on Ugly Love, a best-selling New York Times novel, which is being turned into a movie. I am going to be doing acting classes and coaching to prepare myself for this upcoming role. I am also focusing on Rogue Management, which is the company that I co-own with my business partner and manager, Aileen Manso. Those are the two things we are doing in Los Angeles right now."
The hardest part of his job involves the times when he had to travel the world alone. "Being around the world is fun, but when you don't have people around you, it is not as enjoyable, since you don't get to share those experiences with friends and family," he said.
As a result, he is posting his life on his social media to give his fans and followers a glimpse into the major events of his life. "It is very cool now, since I get to keep the fans in the loop," he said. "Instagram has been my favorite. I started it a year and a half ago, and it has grown rapidly."
Regarding his modeling career, he said, "I did small work for Calvin Klein, but my big campaign was for Abercrombie & Fitch, where I worked with photographer Bruce Weber. That was definitely a good experience and it helped me start my career pretty well."
Bateman shared that his first major acting gig was Hobo With A Shotgun. Aside from acting and modeling, the Ontario native is a four-time world champion in martial arts.
When asked what motivates him every day to pursue all of these endeavors, he said, "I want to be happy. If I wake up, and I am happy doing what I am doing, that is all that really matters to me in accomplishing my goals."
For Nick Bateman, success goes back to happiness. "If you are a happy person, then you are successful. There are so many people that are rich, have all the money in the world, and they are unhappy. As long as I have accomplished my dreams, that's the best feeling in the world for me. That's success."
