Nichole is all smiles!
If you ever want to feel as if the stars are sparkling just for you, go to Nichole.
I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but you know those people that you meet and you just...you just know you've found a new best bud?
I met her at a bonfire after closing night of Bye Bye Birdie, but didn't really meet her until auditions for 1940s Radio Hour. There she was, in the heat of competition with me over a role in the show, and she couldn't have been nicer, more complimentary, or more of a challenge to keep up with! Luckily, we both ended up with roles in the show and, as a result, permanent roles in each others' lives.
Aside from her glowing happiness and enthusiasm and talent, the trait I look up to her most for is her honesty. She is. She doesn't try to hide the bad or the good that has made her who she is. She doesn't hide when she is feeling sad- she lets you know and does her best to move on. The thing is, she lets you know in a way that helps your life, in a way that you can learn and grow from her and what has helped her to do the same.
If you are ever in competition for a role in a show with her, watch out - she's immensely talented and has this natural ability to develop a character and add little quirks that truly bring the show/character to life. I've never seen her perform a role and thought, "I can do better." Nope. Hats off to Nichole!
And doesn't she look a little like Liv Tyler? She's gorgeous!
I look forward to every chance we have to do a girls' night or meet up somewhere. She makes me feel loved and I hope I return the favor.
I love you, Nichole!
