Biography

Paul Nicholas (born Paul Oscar Beuselinck, 3 December 1945 in Peterborough, England) is an English actor and singer who has had considerable success on stage, screen and in the pop charts.

Nicholas’s father Oscar Beuselinck was a highly esteemed entertainment lawyer. During the 1970s, his father’s family home was at Letchmore Heath, Watford opposite the Bhaktivedanta manor. Beuselink’s clients included MGM, Jack Hilton, John Osborne, The Rolling Stones, Tony Richardson, Richard Harris, Sean Connery, Yes, Robert Stigwood, and The Who. Nicholas’s grandparents, Winnie and Oscar, lived in a small cottage on the grounds of the family home. Nicholas’s grandfather - who originated from Belgium - had been a chef in the merchant navy during the Second World War before becoming Head Chef on The Union Castle ships between England and South Africa.

Nicholas began his pop career as early as 1960. Adopting the stage name Paul Dean, he formed Paul Dean & The Dreamers who were booked to support The Savages, the backing band for the British rocker, Screaming Lord Sutch. It was here that Sutch first noticed the young Nicholas, who was soon to become vocalist and pianist with The Savages.

Still using the name Paul Dean, Nicholas released two solo singles in 1965-66.
