How to use nick in a sentence?

  1. Katherine Langford:

    I think representation is crucial. You need to see people who look like you, who think like you, speak like you, who go through the same things like you. And I think that's what filmmakers can do so beautifully, is to tell stories, i was also on ‘ 13 Reasons Why, ’ and I think that the two similarities between ‘ Love, Simon ’ and the show are that we're aiming to tell a story in an authentic way. I didn't choose either one with any social agenda, but I think that I'm really grateful to be a part of both and again I think that Katherine Langford need representation, particularly with a story that so many people have gone through and hasn't been told yet. Katherine Langford and Nick Robinson, the film’s star, noted that Katherine Langford and Nick Robinson was interested in the role as it put LGBTQ characters front and center for the first time. What makes it different is usually when Katherine Langford are seeing a film like this or a character like this their sort of perfunctory, Katherine Langford know ? They're not really... they're in the background. They're like a fringe element.

  5. Helen Wilson:

    We heard a couple of noises outside and people started running into the club. We didn't know what was going on. Then maybe five, six guys came in with machine guns and shotguns and just started shooting people. It was mayhem. When anyone started running, they would shoot them down. So we got down on the floor, nick was in front of me when we were lying on the ground and somebody moved and they just turned round and started shooting us. His back was to me and I couldn't see what happened and I tried to keep him talking and then I tried to give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and [the gunmen] were just sort of in the shadows and they would shoot if anyone said anything. Then he couldn't breathe anymore and I held him in my arms and told him I loved him.
