NATHAN SPITERI IS A FILMMAKER, ACTOR AND WRITER.
He is also a sexual abuse survivor, activist and advocate. Born in Canberra, Australia, Nathan was sexually abused as a child, threatened with his life and that of his family. He turned to drugs, violence and sex as a result to survive. Hitting rock bottom, Nathan finally came out the other side, through intense therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics and Sex Anonymous. He has chosen to use his painful past to help others, aligning himself with organizations both in Australia and the US to raise awareness, educate people and act as an advocate for sexual abuse.
Nathan studied acting in both Australia and the USA and has starred in several films and theatre productions in both countries. He has now turned his hand to writing and producing. A feature film has been written, whilst a limited series is in the process of being written on his life. He has since written his second feature film and another TV series. Nathan starts shooting the Amazon Prime Series, Asunder, in NY in late 2021.
