David Nicholls biography and information

David Alan Nicholls is an English novelist and screenwriter and the middle of three siblings. He attended Barton Peveril sixth-form college at Eastleigh, Hampshire from 1983 - 1985. He attended Barton Peveril College, as did Colin Firth, with whom he would later collaborate with in And When Did You Last See Your Father? He then attended Bristol University in the 1980s before training as an actor at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

Throughout Nicholls's twenties, he worked as a professional actor using the stage name David Holdaway, playing small roles at various theatres, including the West Yorkshire, Playhouse and the Royal National Theatre. His novels include Starter for Ten (2003), The Understudy (2005), and One Day (2009).

Nicholls's novel One Day was adapted into a film in August 2011, starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. The novel follows Dexter and Emma after they spend the night together following their graduation from Edinburgh University in 1988. The novel visits their lives and their relationship on July 15 in successive years in each chapter for 20 years. The film received generally negative criticism, saying that it lacked the depth and insight of Nicholls's novel.
