Nick Gillard

Nick (Nicholas) Gillard was born on December 31, 1959, in Brighton, Sussex, England, UK.
Gillard's father was in the Navy and when Nick was 12 he was sent to military school (to train on a naval ship) but didn't care for it, by the age of 14 he left military school (ran away) and joined the circus in Arundel without his parents' knowledge (they were traveling abroad). A mere four years later Gillard was a world-class trick-rider (horses) with the Moscow State Circus and was also added to the British Stunt Register. He also did a six-year tour with a Medieval jousting tournament where he learned swordplay.
