Banbury bar Also Known As is set to play host to American actor Thomas Nicholas when he performs an acoustic gig there this Saturday as part of a short UK tour.

While Thomas has been busy carving out his career as a musician in more recent years, he is perhaps most recognisable for his role as hormonal teenager Kevin Myers in the American Pie hit comedy film series.

The latest instalment of the franchise, American Reunion, featured the song My Generation on its soundtrack album – a single which was written and performed by Thomas.

He is also known for playing Henry in the film Rookie of the Year and has had a number of guest roles on popular TV dramas such as Grey’s Anatomy and Medium.

He said: “I started playing the guitar when I was 14 and I couldn’t stop.”

His debut album Without Warning was released in 2008 and was shortly followed by an acoustic version in the subsequent year.

He will return to Britain for his fourth ‘Back to the UK’ tour in between filming commitments.

The gig at Also Known As, on Parsons Street, will begin from 9pm. Entry is free of charge.
