The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -


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.
