Nicole Paige Chaffin is an actor, singer, dancer, and producer. She is currently between New York and London as she pursues her Masters in theatre at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). Nicole has a BFA in drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts where she studied in the Meisner Studio, Experimental Theatre Wing, and Stonestreet Studios. She also studied Shakespeare in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and performed at RADA in Henry V. Nicole made her Off-Broadway debut playing "Amelia" in Lilia Rubin's new play The Fall and has spent the past few years starring in short films such as Aquaculture and The Chrysalis (New Hampshire Film Festival)
Nicole grew up as a dancer and always wanted to be a classical ballerina before falling in love with theatre. She studied ballet, tap, and jazz, as well as acting and classical voice, extensively in her youth. She also attended Interlochen Center for the Art's summer musical theatre program before being accepted to NYU. Nicole still loves to dance and takes classes at Broadway Dance Center and Peridance in NYC.
Nicole considers Honolulu, Hawai'i to be her hometown. When she isn't performing, she spends as much time outside as possible. She loves to hike, do yoga, swim, and store Vitamin D for the cold New York and London winters by laying in any available patch of grass. Most recently Nicole has worked on a collaboration between RADA's MA Lab and David Glass Ensemble creating Margo Monroe's Nibelungenlied where she played Margo . She also devised Strange Summit with No Comment Collective for the Bloomsbury Festival this past fall, working within COVID restrictions. Before coming to London, Nicole produced and starred as Mary Anne in a sold out run of When We Were Young and Unafraid by Sarah Treem at the IATI Theatre in New York. She looks forward to creating more work in 2021!
