Spotlight on Nicole de Boer

One of my favorite actresses is Nicole de Boer, who just recently celebrated her birthday on December 20th. Believe it or not this extremely young looking woman just turned 39. Anyway to most sci-fans she is known for 3 distinct roles. First was the indie film Cube (1997) which was a critical hit. Next she would assume the role of Ezri Dax on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Her character inherited the previous memories of the alien symbiont host Dax from departing actress Terry Farrell. Nicole came aboard for what would be the DSN's final season. Then she got the role of Sarah Bracknell Bannerman on the hit show The Dead Zone, which ran for 5 years.

Her personal bio states she was born in Toronto, Canada and has been married to John Kastner since 1999.

They have one child together. She stands 5'5".

de Boer has appeared in a number of made-for-television movies, including Fox's "The Counterfeit Contessa," ABC's "J.F.K.: Reckless Youth," USA Networks' "Kissing Place" and The Disney Channel's "My Date With the President's Daughter." Her films for Canadian television include starring roles in "Heart of Courage," "E.N.G." and "Baby It's You."

In addition to "Cube," deBoer has starred in a number of other independent feature films, including "Jungleground," Prom Night IV" and New Line's "National Lampoon's Senior Trip." A busy stage actress in addition to her television and film work, deBoer has starred in numerous Canadian regional theater productions, among them "Little Women," "Our Town," "Anne of Green Gables," "The Wizard of Oz," "Little Foxes" and "The Father."
Nicole is one of my favorites and she is an excellent actress. Check out her movies and shows if you've never seen her in anything before now. You won't regret it.
