Field was one of "the children of the Queen's Revels," who performed in Ben Jonson's Cynthia's Revels in 1600 and was a member of the King's Men, 1615 - 1619; he is listed (as Nathan Field) as one of the "Principall Actors" in the Shakespeare First Folio. He wrote A Woman's a Weathercock (1612), Amends for Ladies (1618), and (with Philip Massinger) The Fatal Dowry (published 1632). He also wrote a defence of the stage.
He had a reputation as a ladies' man and left the King's Men after he fathered a child by the Countess of Argyll.
