Nicole Carpenter was most recently seen in the Blumhouse Production Ma directed by Tate Taylor (The Help), playing Young Mercedes. She was delighted to be portraying the teenage version of the hilarious Missi Pyle, and to be playing alongside young Sue Ann, the younger version of Octavia Spencer’s character.
Nicole grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, finding a fascination with music and drama at a young age. Countless years of school musicals, talent shows, and plays led her to pursue her passion at the collegiate level. Nicole moved to Boston to earn her Bachelor of Fine Arts at The Boston Conservatory. This rigorous training program set the foundation for her to hit the ground running after school.
Upon graduation, Nicole discovered the thriving film opportunities happening in Atlanta. Nicole returned home and obtained representation with one of Atlanta’s top agencies. She made her network television debut shortly after, playing a young Kelly Lynch on Audience Network’s Mr. Mercedes created by David E. Kelly (Big Little Lies).
