Nichole was born in Hinsdale, Illinois USA on 23 March 1978, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding American nationality. She is best known for her acting career, especially for her roles in the “Beethoven” movie, and “The Nanny” sitcom.
Early life and education
Nicholle spent her childhood in Illinois, living with her parents Charles and Marie Tom (who later divorced), her twin brother David Tom, and her older sister Heather Tom. Her mother was in love with the theater, and passed that love onto her children. Both of Nicholle’s siblings are actors as well – David best known for his role of Billy Abbott in “The Young and the Restless” as he played in a total of 300 episodes from 1999 to 2002 and in 2014, while Heather is best known for having a regular role in “The Bold and the Beautiful”, she joined the cast in 2007 and is still shooting for the show – she’s won five Emmy Awards during her career, and has been nominated for 16 more.
Nicholle was interested in acting from her early years, and took classes with the Young Actors Space when she was 10 years old, and slowly fell in love with it. Two years later she landed her first role, presumably continued her education at the same time.

In 1992, Nicholle won the role for which she is famous today, of Ryce Newton in the family movie “Beethoven” – it was a major success, and so Nicholle played the same role in its sequel – “Beethoven’s 2nd” – in 1993.

Personal life and likes
Nicholle is trying to keep her personal life to herself, so there is not much known about her love life – she dated musician Chris Jaymes from 1997 to 2000, and though this is the last man in her life who the public know about, it is very unlikely that she stayed single for the next 18 years.
Nicholle is a big animal lover, and she has a poodle pet dog named Chester – she frequently posts pictures with him on her Instagram account.
What kept her in the film industry
There were times when Nicholle thought about quitting acting, but claims that this happens to a lot of actors, and that it is important to just stay in the acting class and take things very seriously. She kept on working on many different things in order to constantly be out there, but there is one thing she still wants to do – she wants to play in a sexy film in the role of a sexy character. She would love to do a suspense thriller as well – she loves challenging herself, and believes that this desire for challenge is what made her stay in the film industry. She is now happy with her work, and claims that she wouldn’t want to do anything else with her life.
