Sophistication comes naturally to some Canadians – even to their child television stars! And once a bit of northern loveliness finds her confident, sensual stride, she can turn into the worldly and wonderful creation that is Great White brunette export Nicole de Boer. Only eleven years old when she made her spritely debut upstaging codgers Red Skelton and Vincent Price in the 1981 network extravaganza Freddy the Freeloader’s Christmas Dinner (1981), Nicole was not quite ready for the big time. She retreated back across the border and honed her edgy, cosmopolitan good looks while appearing among provincial broadcast ensembles and eventually raised her poised and alluring profile as a regular on U.S. fare such as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Nicole’s star shines with a sophisticated, sensual sheen as the leading lady of the USA Network’s cult hit The Dead Zone. Watch it and see what life is worth living for.
