Neil Whitely wanted to be an actor since he was seven years old. But when he was young he never pursued thatdream. He never acted in a school play, for example. In his 20s he started a clothing company which he ran for 25 years. His interest in acting was rekindled when his daughter, Nicki, was 9 and told him she wanted to be an actress. While he was with her for auditions or while on set working, Whitely decided that he too would finally try to fulfill his long suppressed dream of being an actor. And he’s never looked back, despite beginning his career relatively late in life.
