Nicole Whippy joins her former Outrageous Fortune co-stars in Westside

We'll be seeing Nicole on the show soon - here, she reveals a few little-known facts about herself.

In a typical working week…
I try to get to the gym three times, but it usually ends up being twice. I do Pump or RPM classes and go early – like 5am early, because my husband has to go to work and I'm in charge of our three-year-old daughter during the day. Every morning, I try to organise an activity for her, then my days are spent either auditioning, doing voice jobs, or prepping for my acting classes at [Auckland's] Point Chevalier Drama Club, which I run for kids twice a week. I also coach my eight-year-old's netball team and she does a million different activities, so I basically run around after her social life.

Advice to my younger self:
Stand in your light and don't be afraid to shine.

The Lost Boys
