BENEFITING: The Chadtough Foundation
EVENT DATE: Mar 08, 2018
Amazed and inspired by the Carr family's strength in turning their tremendous loss into helping others, Nicole is humbled and grateful to be given the opportunity to use her love of dance in support of their incredible efforts with The ChadTough Foundation.
Nicole Forester (Brown) is a Lead Actress Emmy nominee and native Michigander. She started modeling professionally at 12 and acting in musical theatre at 13. Nicole moved to Los Angeles at the age of 19 and starred on shows such as TWO AND A HALF MEN, MONK, WILL & GRACE, THE SINGLE GUY, BEVERLY HILLS 90210, STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE and ENTERPRISE, among others.
Nicole left Los Angeles for New York City, where she booked the role of “Cassie” in the CBS soap opera GUIDING LIGHT. She performed in nearly 300 episodes and received a Lead Actress Emmy Award nomination for her work in 2008.
Returning to her native Michigan to raise her family, Nicole continues to star on NBC’S CHICAGO FIRE, and previously on the Golden Globe nominated Starz Original series, BOSS with Kelsey Grammer. Recent film appearances include JACK REACHER (starring Tom Cruise and directed by Academy Award Winner Christopher McQuarrie), THE DOUBLE (starring Richard Gere), and BATMAN V SUPERMAN (in which she introduces Jesse Eisenberg as “Lex Luther”). Up next for Nicole is a guest star appearance on the new Chris Noth series, GONE. Look for it to premiere this spring!
In addition to her love of dance, Nicole enjoys learning German, skiing, water skiing, and knitting (Nicole is the cover model for the book Greetings from Knit Café by former CBS vice president, Suzan Mischer). But her favorite way to spend time is with her husband Paul, daughter Frances, and son Paul.
