Nico Panagio 

Nico was born and bred in a ‘beautiful little village’ known as Pretoria. After matriculation at Pretoria Boys High School, Nico went on to complete his military service in the South African Navy. He was appointed the Captain of his Division and was ranked Able Seaman. Following five years in the corporate industry, Nico decided to return to his childhood love of drama. He joined the Method Actor’s Training Centre and soon after graduating, started his drama career. Brief stints on Egoli as well as Generations, preceded what would be the start of a longterm contract with the soapie 7de Laan where he played businessman George Kyriakis. He has also performed in various theatre productions around the country.

After five very educational and formative years on ‘the Laan’ he decided to say farewell to George and join the Top Billing Team as presenter. Apart from the incredibly interesting content and the exotic travel, Top Billing also allows him the freedom to pursue other acting ventures and he has recently completed working on the role of Bruno in SABC 3’s Erfsondes. He also plays the role of the Druglord Mr. Big, in the SABC 1 series Zone 14.

Other than his corporate education and his training as actor, Nico completed various courses including paramedic and bodyguard training, anti–terrorism and advanced scuba diving. He has a brown belt in Karate and has trained is trained in kickboxing and Thai boxing (Muay Thai). Apart from his martial arts, he likes swimming, mountain biking, horse riding and playing golf. He has had the awesome experience of delivering a newborn baby, plays the digeridoo and guitar (for his wife and good friends only!) and is very happily married to actress Christi Panagio.
