Hometown: Mississauga, ON
Friendly, outgoing, and a smile that lights up the room, Nicole Peters has a zest for life that is apparent the moment you meet her! This natural blonde, blue-eyed beauty is 22 years old, born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario, and the youngest sibling to an older brother and an identical twin sister (who is 9 minutes older)!
Currently, she is working as an actress for film and television. Starting at the age of 9 months old, some of her credits include a supporting role in the popular hit Anne of Green Gables, numerous television commercials, lead roles in a variety of web series’, and most recently, the principal role of Hope McLanden (Young Blake Lively) in the Lionsgate Hollywood Feature Film, A Simple Favor, directed by Paul Feig that was out in theatres in 2018.
She has balanced school, playing many sports, student council, and being an actress for film and television from elementary school all the way throughout university. Education has always played an important role in her life. With her varied interests in both the fields of entertainment and science, Nicole has spent time studying at both Ryerson for their renowned RTA Media Production program and McMaster for their specialized and selective Arts & Science program only admitting 60 people per year. She graduated last year with honours (Summa Cum Laude distinction) and wrote her LSAT this summer. She plans on continuing to pursue acting for film and television, as well as attend law school in the years to come.
Aside from acting and school, Nicole spends her summers in Muskoka teaching water skiing/wakeboarding and performing in ski shows every week doing pyramids, slalom, swivel ski tricks, and comedy acts! She is representing Canada on Team Canada’s Show Ski Team competing in Florida in 2022.
Just as Nicole has learned a lot through these experiences, one of her greatest passions is teaching and helping others. From teaching water skiing in the summers to tutoring fellow students to volunteering in her community, Nicole is a strong believer in empowering others.
She is competing alongside her twin sister, Lauren Peters. They strive to encourage and motivate each other to do their best and excel on this journey towards representing Canada.
Nicole’s goal is to be the best role model that she can be and continue to take on all that life has to offer with grace, courage, and of course, a little bit of spunk!
