London Elise Kress
The American actress and stunts performer London Elise Kress – also known as London Elise Moore – was born on 2nd November 1992, in Texas. After a number of roles in the early-to-mid 2010s, her career fizzled out as she turned her focus on motherhood and enjoying her married life; however, she still has a respectable fanbase, and the possibility to returning to showbiz if she’s ever interested.
London’s first taste of the entertainment industry was as Michelle William’s stunt double and stand-in, in the 2013 movie “Oz the Great and Powerful”. A year later, she was Imogen Poots’s stand in, in “Need for Speed” and performed stunts in “Into the Storm”, where she met her future husband Nathan Moore. The blonde finished off the year with minor uncredited roles in “Rake” and “The Other Woman”.
In 2015, London was Quinn’s stunt double in “Insidious: Chapter 3”, her most high-profile project to date; apparently her height of 5ft 6ins (168cm) makes her ideal as a double as well as for stunts.
The actress made her relationship with Nathan official in February of the same year, and the couple became engaged mere months later. London and Nathan began trying for a baby shortly after tying the knot, and their wishes were answered in 2017 when they discovered that the stunts double was expecting.
Nathan shared the news via Instagram in July 2017, with a photo of himself and his wife during a romantic trip. They welcomed their first child, Rosie Carolyn Kress, in December 2017, then three years later, they announced that they would be expanding their family with another daughter; Nathan also revealed that their second-born would be a rainbow baby, as London had suffered multiple miscarriages after giving birth to Rosie.
Evie Elise Kress was born in March 2021, and Nathan was every bit the doting father as he uploaded a photo of himself holding his newborn for his thousands of followers to see. London became pregnant again in late 2022, but this time round, her fans only found out when she shared a surprise photo of herself with her infant son, Lincoln William Kress.
‘Welcome, my sweet son,’ the blonde wrote. ‘Our First Day of Summer baby, following his sisters’ First Day of Winter & Spring birthdays. Enjoying this latest new season of our lives to the fullest!’ London also posted cute snaps of her husband cutting Lincoln’s umbilical cord and gazing lovingly into his eyes, as well as photos of Lincoln with his sisters and pet dogs.
Nathan Kress was born on 18th November 1992, in Glendale, California, and raised alongside two brothers named Kevin and Andrew who pursued careers outside of showbiz. When Nathan was four, his mother took him to an open audition showcase upon realizing that her son had a knack for memorizing and re-enacting his favorite TV shows – Nathan was immediately snapped up by a talent agent.
The early 1990s laid the foundations for Nathan’s long and fruitful career, as he had a number of voice-over roles, commercial gigs, and print advertisement photoshoots. After voicing Tough Pup and Easy in the 1998 movie “Babe: Pig in the City”, he took a five-year break from acting and returned to his old school. However, at the age of eleven, he decided to pick up where he’d left off.
Nathan’s change of heart came when he played the title character in a school production of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, which rekindled his interest in acting. He then asked his parents if he could return to showbiz and be homeschooled. After polishing his skills at a summer acting bootcamp, and getting in touch with an agent, the youngster began attending professional auditions once more.

His first live TV appearance after returning to acting was in an April 2005 “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” comedy skit, in which he portrayed a young Simon Cowell. He would appear in five more comedy skits in the same show. Over the next couple of years, the actor guest-starred in “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”, “House”, and “Without a Trace” to name just three shows, while juggling roles in the short films “Pickled”, “Bag”, and “Magnus, Inc.” as well as voiceover gigs.
However, Nathan’s big opportunity came in February 2006 when he was cast as Toplin in “Drake & Josh”. The show’s creator and executive producer, Dan Schneider, became interested in the actor and introduced him to network executives. At the time, Dan was looking for a male lead for a new show he was developing for Nickelodeon – which just happened to be “iCarly”.
Six months after their initial meeting, Nathan auditioned for the role of Freddie in “iCarly”. The Californian successfully passed several rounds of auditions, and was called back to do a screen test with Jennette McCurdy and Miranda Cosgrove. “iCarly” premiered on the network in September 2007, and soon became one of the most popular shows on Nickelodeon aimed at adolescents.
The next year, Nathan had a starring role in “Gym Teacher: The Movie”, and played Freddie in the sequel “iCarly: iGo to Japan”, the show’s first TV movie. As Nickelodeon decided to film seasons two and three of the show back-to-back after filming was halted during the 2008 writers strike, Nathan was unable to accept other roles.
In 2010, the actor finally tried his hand at something different, with a guest-starring role in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”. In the same year, he returned to comedic roles with his portrayal of Ronald in “The Penguins of Madagascar” and Prince Gabriel in “True Jackson, VP”. In 2011 and 2012, Nathan had his work cut out playing Freddie in the final seasons of “iCarly”; almost as soon as his contractual obligations with Nickelodeon had been fulfilled, he began exploring other genres.
As mentioned, Nathan and London met on the set of “Into the Storm”, which was the actor’s first prominent co-starring movie role. He made his directing debut in 2015 with “Henry Danger”, and would go on to start a podcast entitled “RadioActive Dads”. In December 2020, an “iCarly” reboot was announced after months of speculation, and longtime fans of the show were thrilled to see Nathan reprising his role as Freddie one last time.
Although the reboot was moderately successful, in October 2023 it was announced that there wouldn’t be a fourth season. In any case, viewers felt that all the relevant storylines had been wrapped up, and they were just glad to see Nathan and Miranda’s characters finally end up together after so many years.
Despite his Nickelodeon earnings and other projects, Nathan’s net worth is estimated to be just $1.5 million. As for London, it’s impossible to calculate her personal net worth due to her last project being in 201, but some sources put it at over $1 million.
