Beau (II) Nelson biography

Beau Nelson was born on a military base in North Carolina and soon after, he moved to Tampa, Florida where he lived through most of grade school. After his parents' separation, Beau moved to Central Wisconsin with his mother.

Beau graduated high school and tried to focus on acting and modeling, however, the industry non-existent in the area. After a few open calls and little-to-no guidance, Beau enrolled in a local Technical College to build himself a foundation to work from.

Given that the industry just simply doesn't exist in the Central Wisconsin area, Beau had to find other ways to break into the industry. He started by flying to an event in Orlando for a weekend. He followed that up by attending an intense training camp in New York with Marsha Doll. Still the jobs weren't flying at him so he quit his job and flew out to L.A. job hunting. While still not finding the right opportunities, Beau came back to Wisconsin and decided to focus on the Chicago market until he could build a resume. While working in Madison, WI, Beau would travel to Chicago nearly every weekend and occasionally during the week to audition for gigs for free just to build his resume and portfolio. Beau traveled as much as two states just to do a short read on a film hoping to land a role.

After an extremely tough and monetary-exhausting road, Beau had finally started to make contacts. After playing an extra in a documentary for the National Geographic Channel, he landed a commercial in Madison, WI for the Dodge Caliber through Charter Media. He started to land more and more print ads and opportunities to be the lead character for independent films. He also worked with smaller agencies in the Chicago area that helped him get jobs and suddenly, Beau was busy almost every weekend and a few times during the week. Also during that time, he started working with The Rock Agency and attending their acting classes and did photo shoots with their photographers all while building his portfolio and focusing on the IMTA event in New York. After IMTA, Beau signed with Commercial Talent Agency in Los Angeles and relocated; where he's been since.
