Rachel Nichols most recently starred in the television drama “The Inside” and in the remake of the horror classic, The Amityville Horror, opposite Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George and produced by Michael Bay. She will soon be seen in The Woods, opposite Patricia Clarkson and Agnes Bruckner.
A small-town New England native, Nichols first caught the attention of a modeling scout while attending the prestigious Columbia University in New York City, from which she graduated with a double major in math and economics. After campaigns with such brands as Guess, L’Oreal, Abercrombie & Fitch and Nicole Miller, she broke into the world of acting when her agent sent her out on an audition for Sex and the City. Although it was the first audition she had ever been on, she was offered the role. She also appeared in the films Autumn in New York, with Richard Gere, and Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
Nichols currently resides in Los Angeles.
