Nicky’s just doing it for the laughs
Nicky Whelan (pictured above) is hoping to land more comedy roles when wh she returns to Los Angeles An this week.
After spending the festive season se home in Australia, Nicky – who split from her husband, ex-NFL player Kerry Rhodes, in October – is jetting home to LA to attend auditions for pilot season, which she says is becoming more competitive with the increasing content for TV and streaming services.
“There’s more competition than ever before, even though there’s much more content,” says Nicky, who’s lived in LA for the past 10 years after making a name for herself on Ten’s Neighbours.
“I’d like to do a bit more comedy. I’ve steered a lot more towards drama lately – I don’t know why – so I would really like to get back to comedy.”
In Australia for the Magic Millions carnival on the Gold Coast, Nicky shot three films in the second half of last year.
