Nicole Whippy: Creating memorable characters...

Interview – 2012

Actress Nicole Whippy has created some memorable characters on our television screens. She debuted playing a warrior queen on Xena and then appeared in the film Vertical Limit. She made a splash on the drama Jackson's Wharf, before appearing in a raft of TV series such as Mercy Peak, Being Eve, The Strip, Outrageous Fortune and Nothing Trivial.

In this ScreenTalk, Whippy talks about:

  • Being terrified having to ride horses on Xena
  • Having all her acting flaws pointed out by a producer on Jackson's Wharf
  • How a sexy costume helped her create Elektra in Being Eve
  • Being taken on an intense emotional journey on the set of Mercy Peak
  • Filming scenes from The Strip in a real strip club and refusing to go in the spa pool
  • Playing an extreme version of herself on Outrageous Fortune
  • How people on the street had some negative reactions to the role
  • Auditioning for a role on Nothing Trivial that was modeled on her
  • Feeling that her role on the show is the 'big one' in her career
