“Thank-you to the British Arrows CRAFT Awards 2016, for my award for Best Performance by an actor,” said Nicholas. “I just want to say thank-you to all of the agency, AMV BBDO, to all at O Positive who made the ad, especially our Director, David Shane. And to the lovely Jeff Goldblum for being such a gent! Also a great big thanks to my agents at Winterson’s. Cheers!”

The trophy was awarded for Collett’s part in the Currys PC World 2015 television Christmas advert ‘Spare the Act’, also featuring Jeff Goldblum, which you can view in full here.

It’s an excellent piece and a great example of the level of craft and originality that goes into the television Christmas campaigns of major retailers these days, to reach not only a traditional TV but also increasingly online audiences. Nick’s comedic capabilities helped to send an extremely engaging piece of film viral and we formally congratulate him on an outstanding achievement.
