In a recent interview, Nicole revealed the surprising reason she ended up in film. The star admitted that her love for storytelling came about because she often had to stay home alone.

"I am so fortunate to discover literature early [in life]," she shared, adding: "And because of my fair skin I was not allowed to sit on the beach during the midday sun so I would stay home while everyone went to the beach and I would curl in my bed and read.

"I was very frustrated though [that] I couldn't go to the beach so I would make a sandwich and read and read and read and read and little did I know that was going to lead me to my vocation," she continued.
