Nicole Nelson Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Mini Spotlight edition, is a short form interview series featuring actors & artists discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Morgan Willett interviews Nicole Nelson.

A fresh new face in the entertainment industry, actress Nicole Alyse Nelson has quickly become one to watch this year. Nelson can currently be seen starring in Nickelodeon’s new hit series “I am Frankie.” The show follows the life of ‘Frankie Gaines,’ who appears to be your average teenager.  However, we come to find out Frankie has a secret – that she is actually a cutting edge, experimental android that must hide her true identity to avoid being tracked down by the evil tech company EGG Labs.  Nelson stars as ‘Dayton Reyes,’ Frankie’s confident, intelligent best friend who makes it her duty to teach Frankie all about the wonders of Sepulveda High, what it means to be a human, and how to fit in with a judgmental society. The 20-episode series premiered on September 11, 2017.

Born in Galveson, Texas and raised in League City (a suburban area south of Houston) Nelson grew up with dreams of being in the entertainment industry. She started acting in theatre as a child and created her own sketches for YouTube while in high school, then landed a summer internship in Los Angeles with a film production company, working behind the scenes.  During that time, Nelson realized she wanted to pursue acting full time.  After a year of taking various acting classes and working to perfect her craft, she went on a few auditions and landed her current role on “I am Frankie.”  Additional credits for Nelson include Lionsgate’s “Swedish Dicks” and Go90’s “Mr. Student Body President.”

When not on set, Nelson loves to go ripstiking (skateboarding but on 2 wheels), and driving around the city playing her favorite tunes.  On the charity front she is passionate about “Think Pink,” supporting breast cancer awareness. She also loves supporting animal charities.

Nelson currently resides in Los Angeles.
