Tom Olah: Nick you recently returned to porn, why
do you want to return now?
Nick Capra: I love performing. That's who I am. I left the
Industry to be in a relationship. I loved him very much.
But, I'm single now. So, on with the show. ;-)
T.O: In the past you have been a fun boy and on Facebook you have
recently been 120 days clean and sober. So I
have to ask, why does it seem to be working this time?
N.C: Today, I put my sobriety before everything else. I have a
sponsor. I go to 3 meetings a week. And I work the
steps. I hang out with my sober buddies. I am not endorsing this way of
life to anyone else. But, it is working for me.
T.O: How did you first get into gay porn?
N.C: My boyfriend was Troy Michaels. I knew NOTHING about gay
porn. He asked me to do an internet show with
him for Chi Chi LaRue. I agreed, simply because I didn't think that an
internet show was going to be a very big deal.
I walked into Channel 1 Studios - Hue Wilde (videographer for Channel 1
at the time) met me, got on the phone with
someone and said, "You need to come down here right now." Fifteen
minutes later, this loud, eccentric man came
walking through the door and came right up to me with a big grin and
said, "Hi, I'm Chi Chi..." Within fifteen minutes
Chi Chi had helped me devise a stage name, and an hour into our
internet show, he had offered me my first video, Finish
Me Off. That was twelve years ago, February 2002.
T.O: How many movies have you made so far?
N.C: Actual DVD's? Over 70. Not including internet stuff.
T.O: Do you have an all-time favorite Nick Capra movie?
N.C: I loved shooting French Kiss, because we got to film in
Paris. But, my favorite scene will always be Dirty Talk,
with the late Arpad Miklos. He was such a beautiful, gentle giant.
T.O: Do you feel you can be in porn and still have a boyfriend?
N.C: I feel that I can be in porn, dating someone else who is in
the industry. Over the course of 8 years in the Industry,
my relationships were never successful dating someone who wasn't in the
T.O: I understand you are also wring a autobiography, are you
going to be dishing?
N.C: You mean, am I going to disclose the identities of the
celebrities that you would die to know were secretly gay,
whom have hired me? No. Am I going to assassinate other porn stars'
characters? No. I will tell some crazy stories that
give the reader a behind the scenes look into the world of porn and
escorting. But, I am essentially writing this book so
it will be relatable to gay men who are suffering from addiction, from
body dysmorphia, from the suicide of someone they
love...and don't think they have a solution. I want to inspire them to
believe in themselves. If I can come back from all of it,
so can they!
T.O: Biggest secret you are going to be sharing?
N.C: I have lots of secrets. You'll have to read the book.
T.O: I understand you have been filming a few movies, so for your
fans, what can we be looking to see you in?
N.C: I have been exploring my passionate side in these first few
films. So, now I'm looking to get a little more raunchy
and explore my primal side.
T.O: Who do you want to still work with?
N.C: The Santoro boys. Billy and Seth. At the same time. PLEASE!!!
T.O: Best way for your friends to keep up with all things Nick
