Adding to Nikita’s plethora of male eye candy is chiseled actor Ashton Holmes.
Like most of the cast, he got started early, taking acting lessons at age 6. By the time he was in his twenties, he’d landed a role on One Life to Live and minor parts on Law and Order: SVU, Cold Case, and Boston Legal. In 2005 David Cronenberg cast him as Jack Stall in the critically acclaimed A History of Violence. More film roles followed, including a part in What We Do Is Secret where he played Nikita co-star Shane West’s gay lover. (Yeah, we’ll be adding that to our Netflix queues, too.) Most recently, he played “Sid Phillips” in HBO’s 10-part television World War II miniseries The Pacific.
