Nolan Ramsay North was born on October 31, 1970 in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in Rhode Island. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a baseball scholarship and received a degree in journalism. He later moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where he attended Emerson College, graduating with a degree in communications. After college he became a reporter in New Jersey. After nearly a year of this he moved to New York City to pursue a career as an actor and stand-up comedian.
He is known for voicing the Marvel anti-hero, Deadpool. Describing the character, North states: "The idea of being professionally schizophrenic and completely nuts is very appealing to me. It was like a vocal playground to bounce back and forth between these characters, [i.e.] the different voices of the same character. It's like when you're alone or driving in your car and you're just sort of having that conversation with yourself." He has been nominated for two Video Game Awards, both for playing Nathan Drake, in the years 2009 and 2011.
Outside of voice acting he has also appeared on the soap opera Port Charles as Chris Ramsey, portraying the role from 1997 to 2003.
