Nicole started with some theatre and modelling work before getting her first break via independent films. She was part of acclaimed films like “Adventure of Two Girls in Love” as well as “Boogie Nights”, which was a big break for her acting career, however, she had a bit of trouble after doing independent films, as she had to wait for some time before finding more opportunities, mentioning how she worked odd jobs to make ends meet. Her first stable opportunity came when she found a role in the series “Soul Food”, in which she played Teri Joseph. The show helped her display her acting and singing prowess, with her popularity helping her land guest roles in numerous television series as well as roles in films, and she’s been in movies like “Remember the Titans” in which she played alongside Denzel Washington.
