Nicole grew up the youngest of three in a small city just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia. A competitive figure skater from an early age in a single income family, she spent most of her spare time training, or outdoors camping and enjoying the amazing mountains her native B.C. offered.

Her first taste of set life came on a locally shot commercial at the age of fifteen. Two weeks following the shoot she had her mother, armed with a determined grandmother, drive her to the agents home and wait in the car as she sat herself down in the woman's living room to confess her commitment to a life in film. Off to the Vancouver Film School she went to train under the skillfull hand of Mikal Dughi and private coaching of Bart Anderson.

While young and lacking life experience, growing up took the front seat to her acting career in the years that followed. After dipping her toes in several other fields a life in policing remained her top choice.

In 2006 a series of fatefull events led Nicole to Toronto, Ontario where she would soon rediscover her love of acting and dream of making movies. " Two weeks after landing in Toronto I booked my first commercial and realized this city was going to be my home for more than a few months..". A series lead and several other T.V roles, independant movies, commercials, and short films followed.

Despite her initial success, 2011 proved to be a difficult year with the loss of her best friend to breast cancer. It was decided at that point that some personal time off was needed to heal and do Nicole Williamssome soul searching. "I spent a year and a half getting out and exploring ontario's wilderness. I camped, spent time with my dog, and came to terms with what's important in life and what makes me feel alive."

"Acting is in my blood.. I love losing myself in roles to the point of being unrecognizable. I love the drama of it all.. The magic of being on set and those special moments between 'action' and 'cut' are what make the struggle worth it."

Looking forward at the rejection that inevitably lies ahead, Nicole remains focused on her goals and says that every 'no' along the way will strengthen her for when her time comes. " I'm a fighter.. at this point, giving up is not an option. Life is just too short."

In Loving Memory of Crystal Kramer

a puppy.. my two loves :)

Crystal Kramer.. a talented casting director, loving wife, inspiring mother, and true warrior. As the first person to really give me a shot in the business she also became my best friend.. my family.. She taught me how to follow my dreams with integrity and determination.. how to live my life with grace and dignity while appreciating every precious moment.. Everything I accomplish in this business..every dream I get to experience coming true will be in some way because of what she's taught me.. I will forever be a better person because I was lucky enough to be loved by her..

In loving memory
Crystal Kramer
