Douglas M. Nelson
- Make-Up Department
Son of Gene Nelson, growing up around show business, there was little doubt that it was where Douglas' aspirations were heading... His first home was in Encino, CA... At the age of four, they moved to Sherman Oaks...next door to Dick Clark. Some of his friends and neighbors were also in the entertainment industry... Barbara Eden, Lorne Greene, Henry Fonda, Richard Dawson, Gisele MacKenzie, John Ericson & Milly Ericson, Quinn Martin, Jim Backus, and Leslie Nielsen. Douglas' next home was in Beverly Hills, where he spent most of his school years. In 1971, the family did move to NY for a year, while his father, Gene Nelson starred in "Follies" on Broadway. After returning to BH, Douglas returned to El Rodeo Elementary, and then finished his schooling at Beverly Hills High School. While attending Santa Monica College, he was cast in The Last American Virgin (1982). After that, he decided to pursue acting, full-time... Douglas found the "Sal Dano Acting Workshop", where he was taught the craft of being a true actor. He studied with Sal for over fifteen years... In 1998, he started working on General Hospital (1963), and continued his role as Officer Hollis, for three years.
