Home And Away 1988-1993, 1995Edit

For 6 years, Nicolle played Bobby SImpson, later Marshall who went from wayward aggressive teen to mature full time wife and mother. In 1993, Nicolle decided to leave the show to pursue other projects so her character was killed off in a boating accident.

In 1995, Nicolle agreed to return as Bobby, and no, she was not bought back from the dead. She appeared as a hallucination to Ailsa who was having a breakdown after being attacked by a young man in the diner. Nicolle was heavily pregnant at the time so only her face was shown. The scene of Bobby coming out of the fridge is considered one of the most iconic H&A moments of all time.

After Home And AwayEdit

After leaving Home and Away, Nicole found acting jobs hard to come by. She began to work as a book-keeper in her husband James's real-estate business. She went on from there to become an accountant and that is what she works at to this day. She has two grown-up sons called Lincoln and Winston.

In 2018, she and Alex Papps returned to the set of Home and Away as part of the 30th anniversary documentary Endless Summer.
