From 2001 to 2003, Schofield played bratty Ryan Harper on Night and Day, brother to the show's missing teenager Jane. This role called on him to be at times evil, bitchy, vulnerable, and plain weird: scenes had him dressing up Ali G style, and sitting on a flying carpet. Nick always seemed passionate about Night and Day, often talking it up in interviews or in magazines. One TV guide noted that Ryan Harper was "the campest heterosexual in soap"!
Nick stated in a 2002 interview with AXM Magazine that he would like to write a screenplay.
