Nikki Cox Biography

The 5' 7" Nikki Cox (formerly Nicole Avery Cox) was born June 2, 1978, in Los Angeles. By the age of four she was already expressing her interest in entertainment. While taking dance classes, she was "discovered" by an agent who helped Cox land a role in the comedy Mac and Me. She followed this up with appearances in Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, an LA Music Center ballet tour, Paula Abdul's video "Forever Your Girl," and the 1989 MTV Awards show.

When she was 10 years old, Cox landed her first speaking role in Mama's Family. Other TV credits include Star Trek: The Next Generation, Night Court, Murphy Brown, Baywatch, and Boy Meets World. She had a recurring role on Someone Like Me and also joined the cast of General Hosptial. Her self-titled series Nikki lasted just two seasons. The actress has starred in two made-for-television movies: The Ryan White Story and Danger Island. She has appeared in the films Terminator 2: Judgement Day, The Glimmer Man, Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, and Run Ronnie Run.

On a personal note, Cox is married to comedian Bob Goldthwait, whom she met on the set of Unhappily Ever After.
Nikki Cox's show-business career started rolling when she was just four years old. It was at this young age that she began to demonstrate the coordination and creativity that made her parents enroll her in dance classes, and it was five years later that a talent scout spotted her in one of those very classes. She was soon cast as a dancer in Moonwalker, and as Ryan White's sister in The Ryan White Story. Cox grew and matured into a very attractive woman, so she had no trouble snagging roles as she came into adulthood. She had a recurring role on The Norm Show before starring in her own sitcom, Nikki. The series lasted two seasons and when it finished its run in 2002, she snatched up a part in what would be a very popular show the very next year. Joining the cast of the hit series Las Vegas, Cox became a permanent cast member of the show, using her off time to play Bambi in the mystery-comedy Lonely Street in 2007.
