Compared to the early 2000's, Nichols looks almost unrecognizable today! He's definitely matured from his character "Julian Baker". In 2013, Nichols went on to star in recurring roles like Fox's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Showtime's Ray Donovan

One of his more prominent roles that you may better recognize him from is AMC's hit zombie series, The Walking Dead. One genre of series or films he seems to stick with: drama. This includes Bates Motel and The VillageSpeaking of drama, we definitely wonder if there was any in his personal life concerning the ladies! He used to be in a relationship with OTH co-star Sophia Bush, and then later to Agents co-star Chloe Bennet from 2014-2017. Now, he's dating actress Hassie Harrison.
