Biography rachel nichols

Rachel Nichols, the daughter of Jim, a schoolteacher, and Alison, was born and raised in Augusta, Kennebec County, Maine. She attended Cony High School, where she competed in the high jump. As a sophomore at Cony, she studied abroad in France. Nichols has admitted that she “wasn’t the hot chick” in high school, referring to herself instead as a “late bloomer”. Upon graduating in 1998, she headed to Columbia University in New York City, intent on studying psychology. While growing up, Nichols enjoyed trekking through the outdoors and loved windsurfing, sailing and “just being on the water”.

According to Nichols,

 she stumbled into modeling accidentally: “I was in the right place at the right time and decided to give modeling a try”. While posing for companies like Guess?, L'Oreal, Nicole Miller and Abercrombie & Fitch, she also enrolled in drama classes at Columbia. She maintained a difficult schedule throughout college, balancing her studies in New York City with photo shoots in Europe. In 2002, Nichols decided to really pursue acting in earnest.

At first, Nichols appeared in various television shows in bit parts (her first auditioned role, which she won, was that of an orgy-loving restaurant hostess in a 2002 episode of Sex and the City), but later that year she won the role of Jessica, the dogged school-newspaper reporter, in Dumb and Dumberer. She left Columbia midway through her last semester to shoot the picture, but still managed to graduate on time despite the demanding modeling schedule. She wrote two term papers and took the final exam of her undergraduate career just days before shipping all of her things to Atlanta, where the movie was being filmed. Although the movie was ultimately a flop, the exposure it provided earned Nichols roles in the television series Line of Fire, as well as the 2005 horror films, The Amityville Horror, and The Woods.

In 2004, she was cast as the centerpiece of the new show The Inside, playing rookie Special Agent Rebecca Locke, assigned to Los Angeles’ FBI Violent Crimes Unit, an elite group of criminal profilers charged with tracking the city’s most dangerous deviants. The summer 2005 series received mixed reviews and a limited run, though the performances of Nichols received generally favorable marks from critics.

After the failed series, Nichols quickly found work on the another, Alias in the fall of 2005. Nichols portrayed Rachel Gibson, a computer expert duped into thinking she works for the CIA, when in fact she is working for a dangerous terrorist organization (a similar predicament from that of the lead character in previous seasons). Nichols’ character ends doing undercover missions and martial arts scenes, which Nichols had to work hard on to make appear realistic, struggling at first with the stunts. At first, Nichols’ character was created as a possible replacement for series star due to a real-life pregnancy of the lead actress.

After starring in two canceled television series in that calendar year, Nichols turned her attention back to the big screen with two movies in 2007. The first, Resurrecting the Champ, featured Nichols as the assistant to a sportswriter who finds a former boxing legend living homeless on the streets. The second, P2, marked a return to the horror genre for Nichols, as she portrayed a businesswoman who gets trapped inside a public parking garage with a deranged security guard.

In 2007, Nichols also landed one of the leads in a pilot, although the show ultimately was not picked up to series. Looking ahead to 2009, Nichols’ films include J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek (in which she plays an Orion cadet at Starfleet Academy), as well as Stephen Sommers' G.I. Joe, in which she portrays Shana 'Scarlett' O’Hara, and had to put on approximately 15 pounds (6.8 kg) of muscle for the role and train in mixed martial arts for some of the film's action sequences.

In the last years, she has played in several other movies, such as The Loop and Conan the Barbarian. In 2010, she got a recurring role in the TV series Criminal Minds as Ashley Seaver, a cadet of the FBI Academy for three episodes; her character became a show's regular at the start of 2011. However, she was let go for the show's seventh season.

Starting in 2012, she played Kiera Cameron, the lead character in Continuum[1].


Nichols is the fifth to appear on Criminal Minds who has connections to the Star Trek franchise, having played a minor part wearing heavy make-up in the latest movie. Anton Yelchin, who played Nathan Harris on Criminal Minds, also had a supporting role in that movie.

While growing up in a small town in Maine, Rachel Nichols had zero ambition of becoming a professional actor. A chance occurrence with a modeling scout on the streets of New York City, however, would soon have her starring in advertising campaigns for Abercrombie and Fitch and Guess Jeans. These ad campaigns drew the attention of a New York casting agent, who asked Nichols to read for a small part in the romantic drama "Autumn in New York" (2000), which she ultimately landed. Other roles soon followed, including recurring parts on the television shows "Alias" (ABC, 2001-2006) and "Criminal Minds" (CBS, 2005-), as well as supporting roles in blockbuster movies such as "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009), "Star Trek" (2009) and "Alex Cross" (2012). Thus, in a little over a decade, Nichols' acting career that seemingly began on a whim blossomed into numerous career-defining performances across a broad spectrum of television shows and movies.

POLITICS ESPN reporter Rachel Nichols’ show fails to air after she’s pulled from NBA Finals due to Maria Taylor race comment PUBLISHED TUE, JUL 6 20211:37 PM EDTUPDATED WED, JUL 7 20218:29 AM EDT Dan Mangan @_DANMANGAN SHARE Share Article via Facebook Share Article via Twitter Share Article via LinkedIn Share Article via Email KEY POINTS ESPN revealed it benched white NBA reporter Rachel Nichols from pregame and halftime coverage of the finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns. The move came amid furor over Nichols’ suggestion in a call last year that her Black colleague Maria Taylor got a hosting gig for the 2020 finals because of her race. Adam Mendelsohn, an advisor to Lakers star LeBron James, told Nichols on that call, “I’m exhausted. Between Me Too and Black Lives Matter, I got nothing left.” Mendelsohn apologized for that comment in an email to CNBC. WATCH NOW VIDEO01:05 ESPN sits Rachel Nichols for NBA Finals after diversity comments ESPN without warning failed to broadcast the scheduled afternoon NBA show of reporter Rachel Nichols on Tuesday — hours after blocking her from sideline coverage of the NBA Finals due to her suggestion to LeBron James’ key advisor that Black colleague Maria Taylor got a hosting gig last year because of her race. The drama at the self-proclaimed “Worldwide Leader in Sports” came in the hours before the finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns was due to tip off in Phoenix. Nichols, who is white, was the primary sideline reporter for ESPN during the NBA playoffs. The expectation had been that she would continue in that role during the finals. But on Sunday, The New York Times published a bombshell report that detailed the circumstances of Nichols’ accidentally recorded call with James advisor Adam Mendelsohn in July 2020, and the backlash they caused within the Walt Disney-owned sports cable TV giant. In that call, Nichols suggested to Mendelsohn, who also is white, that Taylor got a plum spot hosting 2020 finals shows because of her race, the Times reported. Nichols expected to get that spot. “If you need to give her more things to do because you are feeling pressure about your crappy longtime record on diversity — which, by the way, I know personally from the female side of it — like, go for it,” Nichols said on the call, audio of which was published by the Times.

According to the Times report, Mendelsohn shortly afterward in that call said: “I don’t know. I’m exhausted. Between Me Too and Black Lives Matter, I got nothing left.” Nichols laughed at his remark. CNBC Politics Read more of CNBC’s politics coverage: Trump sues Facebook, Twitter and Google’s YouTube Biden’s tax hike plans are losing momentum Rockets hit Iraq bases, wounding two people The conversation was captured, and fed to ESPN’s control room in Connecticut, by a live camera in Nichols’ hotel room in Florida. A tape of that call quickly circulated at ESPN, which reportedly never disciplined Nichols for what she said about Taylor during the call. On Tuesday, ESPN announced that Nichols would not appear on either the sideline during the finals or on “NBA Countdown,” the pregame and halftime show for the championship series. Taylor will host that show with other ESPN reporters, the network said. ESPN also announced that Malika Andrews — who is Black — will handle sideline reporting during the finals. But the network said Nichols will appear on her show, “The Jump,” on-site from the finals games “for weekday shows.” Hours later, “The Jump” failed to appear as scheduled at 4 p.m. Tuesday. Instead, two other ESPN hosts, Jalen Rose and David Jacoby, appeared on their show, “Jalen & Jacoby.” “The Jump” is expected to be back on the air as scheduled Wednesday. ESPN declined to comment. On Monday, Nichols apologized for the controversy as she opened the broadcast of “The Jump.” “I also don’t want to let this moment pass without saying how much I respect, how much I value our colleagues here at ESPN,” Nichols said. “How deeply, deeply sorry I am for disappointing those I hurt, particularly Maria Taylor, and how grateful I am to be a part of this team,” she said. On Sunday, the Times reported that Taylor’s colleagues in May discussed whether they would refuse to appear on “NBA Countdown” in protest over changes to the production, which they believed were made to benefit Nichols. Mendelsohn apologized for his comment about the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements on Sunday in an email to CNBC after being asked about it. “I made a stupid, careless comment rooted in privilege and I am sincerely sorry,” said Mendelsohn, who last year co-founded James’ Black voter advocacy group More Than A Vote. “I shouldn’t have said it or even thought it,” Mendelsohn said in an email. “I work to support these movements and know that the people affected by these issues never get to be exhausted or have nothing left. I have to continue to check my privilege and work to be a better ally,” he added.
